PAC 8 is hosting its annual Holiday Wine and Cheese Silent Auction and Fundraiser at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 at Fuller Lodge.

Attendees can do some holiday shopping in one evening, while they taste wines and cheeses from around the world. Items such as sushi making lessons with sushi dinner; ski passes from Pajarito Mountain; a 12 lb. organic turkey from the Los Alamos Co-op; bagels and cream cheese for a year from Ruby K’s, artwork, jewelry, many gift certificates and more will be available for bidding.

Rumelia, a Balkan/Folk/World female trio from Santa Fe will provide entertainment. Their music is derived from the traditional and popular tunes of Albania, Turkey, Greece, Macedonia and Bulgaria, with some Gypsy music thrown in.

PAC 8 Board President Dave Schiferl, will match $1 for every dollar donated, up to $300, not including auction items or ticket sales, from now until the fundraiser ends at 9 p.m. Nov. 16.  If PAC 8 receives $300 in donations by that time, Schiferl will donate an extra $200.
