Love is in the air as Museum on Main prepares for its 13th Annual Wines & Valentines fundraiser at Castlewood Country Club on Friday, Feb. 7, beginning at 6 p.m. This year’s Sweetheart Sponsor is the Republic Family of Companies.

The night begins with a cocktail hour featuring sparkling wine and a no-host bar, according to Executive Director Jim DeMersman. Guests will also be able to bid on silent auction baskets prepared by museum board members.

The doors to the dining room will open at 7 p.m., where guests will enjoy a three-course dinner (choice of filet mignon, Covina sea bass or vegetable risotto) served with appropriate wines for each course, thanks to the sponsorship of Total Wines and More.

Between courses, the museum will host rounds of its traditional 2-Bit Auction, in which guests can bet quarters on a variety of small prizes. A special game of “heads or tails” will lead into a live auction. The evening will conclude with drawings for more than a dozen items contributed by community members.

Tickets are $100 per person and may be purchased online at, at Museum on Main, or by phoning the museum at (925) 462-2766. Tickets purchased by phone and online will be available for pick up in the lobby of Castlewood Country Club on the evening of the event.
