Wine for a Good Cause

Six generous Carmel Valley wineries will be donating their wines to a Mali-Inspired Spirit Doll Sale that we would like to invite you to.  We know some of you don't live in the area, but who knows?  You may find yourself in Carmel Valley that day or wish to contribute to the cause or just reacquaint yourself with these great wineries.  

Thank you...

A Mali-Inspired Spirit Doll Sale
Thursday, May 17

Mid Carmel Valley
 Refreshments and Raffle

If you came to the Schools3 Art Show last spring, you may have seen the one-of-a-kind "Mali-Inspired Spirit Dolls" made with colorful batik fabric from Africa.  Created by three former teachers from Carmel Unified School District, these colorful female figures sold out immediately. We are back at it, and have added five more artists to our group.  Our small replicas of the women of Mali will be all dolled up in Mali batik with touches of French flair. In addition to the dolls, some unique handcrafted batik necklaces will be for sale, with all proceeds going towards Schools3.  The goal and our dream are to raise enough money to build an entire school from the sale of this Mali-inspired folk art. That's a long way off, but little by little, and with your help, we'll get there.

We hope you will join us on Thursday, May 17th.  Pick up a sweet Mali-inspired Maiden, contribute to a wonderful cause, and have a little fun as well. 
(Keep in mind that these folk art figures are not for children, because of buttons and other findings that could be a choking hazard.)

See you soon.
