MVFD Starlight Dinner & Auction

Saturday August 19th -

Summer is fast approaching and itís time to gather together and fundraise for the ever-so-crucial Mayacamas Volunteer Fire Department. The 23rd Annual Starlight Dinner & Auction will be held on Saturday, Aug. 19. This unique event takes place outdoors in a beautiful heritage oak grove at Gordenker Ranch.

In addition to the local community, the event draws many out-of-towners and includes a sparkling wine reception, live and silent auctions, raffle prizes, live music and dancing and, back by popular demand, a family-style dinner catered by Olive & Vine with local beer and wine.

The Starlight Auction is a critical fundraiser for the Mayacamas Volunteer Fire Department, which services homes east of Highway 12 in the Mayacamas Mountains. The annual event helps to keep the department equipped and prepared to meet the emergency needs of the area.

Early bird tickets are available through June 18. For tickets, go to and search for MVFD Starlight Dinner & Auction.

MVFD was formed in 1980 and is responsible for covering over 7,200 acres, often steep and challenging. For more information about MVFD, email
