As at least one guest shared with us, this year’s Shemer Honors Mayme Kratz event was “beautiful” and we are so glad we had the opportunity to honor Mayme and her 40-plus year career as an artist.  For the past three decades Mayme has been represented by Lisa Sette Gallery.

This year’s event was attended by over 120 people who enjoyed a wonderful reception with the artist and then dinner, catered by Personal Touch Catering.  A video, created in part for virtual attendees, was shown during dinner and then a short program followed featuring Honorary Chairs Oscar De las salas and Gary Jackson.  A silent auction turned into a live auction with guests enjoying the opportunity to purchase items such as an overnight stay at the Phoenician with dinner for two at Cotton & Mowry, and two private vineyard tours and wine-tasting with Sam Pillsbury, owner of Pillsbury Wine Co.  Overall it was a wonderful evening for all!
