Saturday Date for 2015 Solano Wine & Food Jubilee
For the first time in many years, the 2015 Solano Wine & Food Jubilee will be held on a Saturday.
The 28th Annual Jubilee will get under way at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Specialty Event Center in Fairfield. “The larger venue got rave reviews last year from ticketholders, sponsors and vendors,” noted Bill Seiden, Jubilee chairman, “and we’re already hearing from many sources that having the event on a Saturday should make it easier for ticketholders and vendors to attend and enjoy the evening.”
The facility, located at 300 Chadbourne Road, is large enough to easily accommodate the Jubilee’s 2,000-plus ticketholders, the more than 100 wine, brew, non-alcoholic beverages and food vendors, an array of silent auction tables, a special VIP area and, for those fans of The Time Bandits, an expanded dance floor.
Jubilee organizers are happy to announce that the top prize in the 2015 Jubilee Raffle will again be a brand new car, in a repeat partnership with Rami Yanni of Vacaville GMC and Vacaville Nissan. Rami has offered to donate either a 2015 Nissan Altima or Buick Encore as the Grand Prize in the raffle, that also offers $10,000 in cash prizes. Tickets are $50 each, or three for $100.
So far, Presenting Sponsors for the 2015 event include Rami Yanni of Vacaville GMC and Vacaville Nissan, Freeman Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Gold’s Gym and Al and Patt Shaw.
Open That Bottle Night, a precursor to the Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fairfield. The invitation-only evening for the Jubilee’s $1,500-and-above sponsors will be held on February 28.
Sponsorship opportunities are being arranged now. For the minimum contribution of $1,500 -- and up to $20,000 and above -- a sponsor will not only receive invitations to Open That Bottle Night, but early entrance to the Jubilee, beginning at 5:30 p.m., an invitation to a private reception at the event, hotel accommodations, and limousine service.
The 28th Annual Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, a black tie-optional affair (denim discouraged), gets under way at the Specialty Event Center, 300 Chadbourne Road in Fairfield, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on April 25, for general admission. Tickets, for those ages 21 and over, must be purchased in advance and are $100. To purchase tickets, call (707) 646-3133, or go online at www.wineandfoodjubilee.org.
Organizers also plan to offer a limited number of “VIP Table for 10” packages for Jubilee night again this year. These VIP tables include many of the benefits afforded VIP ticket-holders – early admittance, special treats on arrival, and access to the “VIP Lounge” – for $1,750. Please call 646-3133 to secure one of these highly popular table packages.
The Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, organized by NorthBay Healthcare Foundation to support the programs of NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement, has become the biggest and most popular fund-raising event in Solano County. Over the past 27 years this sell-out gala has raised more than $3 million, enabling NorthBay to provide physical, emotional and spiritual care for the terminally ill, regardless of their ability to pay. With this support, these patients – and their families – are able to live their final days as peacefully and comfortably as possible.
Jubilee Planners Get Early Start
It will be a new day for the 2015 Solano Wine & Food Jubilee.

The Jubilee will also be held at the Specialty Event Center in Fairfield again, based on the positive response to the 2014 venue.
So, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 25, 2015 if you plan to attend this popular fund raising event for NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement.
