Gala at the Garden and Casa Boutique


The tagline at the end of the press release I received for this event reads, “Shop today for their tomorrow.”

It kinda makes the idea of shopping seem a little less hedonistic and a bit more altruistic.

If this appeals to you, check out the Casa Boutique this weekend at the Casa Garden Restaurant and Meeting Center; proceeds benefit the Sacramento Children’s Home. The opening night reception, Gala at the Garden, takes place Friday, Oct. 26 from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Your $15 ticket price gets you wine and hors d’oeuvres, and first access to the boutique, which will be selling jewelry, hand-blown glassware, gourmet jams and jellies, and other one-of-a-kind gifts.

Can’t make Friday night’s reception? The Casa Boutique is open on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and entry is free. There won’t be wine, but there will be light snacks as well as live demonstrations by Open Studio at Lakeside, a community of artists of many types and ages.
