The Town of Fairfax Open Space Committee (FOSC), in collaboration with James Redford’s rock band, Olive and the Dirty Martinis, will hold a benefit fundraiser at the 19 Broadway Nightclub in Fairfax on Friday night, December 11.
The benefit music performance begins at 9 p.m. and is for ages 21 and over. Performance tickets are $25 each. For more information about the venue and performance advance ticket sales, visit the nightclub’s website at www.19Broadway.com.
In addition, there will be a valuable raffle prize package provided that evening from James Redford with tickets selling for $20 each or three tickets for $50. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event, but anyone wanting to purchase raffle tickets in advance, or wants more information, may email to: FOSCFundraising@gmail.com .
This special raffle prize package has been donated by Sundance Resort in Utah (founded by Robert Redford) and offered by his son, James Redford. The package is valid for one year and includes:
- Round-trip coach airfare for two on Southwest
- Two-night stay for two in a Sundance Utah Resort suite. (The resort black-out dates are holidays and during the Sundance Film Festival.)
- Two adult, all-day lift tickets per day
- Dinner for two in the Foundry Grill (two courses, not including gratuity or alcohol)
This benefit event is partially to celebrate this year’s successful $1.2 million acquisition of the 16-acre Sky Ranch for the Marin County Open Space District. The property, above San Anselmo and Fairfax, was purchased by the Marin Open Space Trust with help from the San Anselmo and Fairfax open space committees. Olive and the Dirty Martinis, with a July 2014 fundraiser, helped provide a sizeable portion of the funding for the Sky Ranch acquisition.
The Fairfax Open Space Committee exists to preserve the visual and environmental values of the community through the purchase of undeveloped land in and around Fairfax. For more information about FOSC, please visit the Committee’s website at www.fairfaxopenspace.com.
