Thanks to Foothill Lions Club and the community for its support

The Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation’s first annual Cioppino Feed was a huge success, thanks to community support, a sold-out event, and a successful auction.

Held last weekend at the Fairgrounds, Chef Arnie Romanello created and served his special 100-year-old recipe to a sold-out crowd.  A special thank you goes to the Foothill Lions Club for donating their time and services to the event, as well as to the Cool Hollow 4-H Club for serving the guests. Thank you to SPD, Raley’s, Save Mart, Grocery Outlet, B & C True Value Hardware, A to Z Supply, Sara Lee Bakery, Hills Flat Lumber, Mill Street Clothing, Nevada City Winery, the Hawkeswood Family, and Safeway for their donations.

“We are so grateful to our community for supporting the Foundation and its events,” said Ed Scofield, President of the Fairgrounds Foundation. “As state funding is eliminated from our community Fairgrounds, it’s more important than ever to do what we can to support our Fairgrounds to ensure that it remains a viable part of our community for generations to come. Continued community support at events like this will ensure that happens.”

The Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation was established in 2005 to fulfill its mission of supporting and improving the community’s Fairgrounds.
