An intimate sunset “Dinner & Libations” is planned for Saturday, October 1, from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. to raise funds for the Piedras Blancas Light Station.
Guests can roam the light station grounds and ask questions of our knowledgeable docents while sipping wine or beer, then taking in the sunset view while enjoying dinner and live music by Kenny Taylor. A silent auction of exclusive art, unique experiences, and fun gift baskets donated by community members will also help in raising funds.
The Piedras Blancas Light Station Association (PBLSA) is the nonprofit Friends group that supports the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in their efforts to maintain and restore the historic treasure that is the local light station. BLM engineers are currently reviewing a proposal submitted by PBLSA to stabilize the tower and repair damage caused by rusting ironwork. Once these steps are complete, work can begin to rebuild the top three floors of the tower and restore the lighthouse to its original appearance. The complete restoration of the tower will be a lengthy, multi-million-dollar project, and the support of fundraising efforts by PBLSA will be necessary to supplement the funds BLM is able to allocate.
Tickets for Dinner & Libations for the Station are $100 per person and include a light station logo glass, dinner, dessert, and unlimited pours of wine and beer. To see the dinner menu and arrange for tickets, visit piedrasblancas.org/events/.
