IIDA Art & Wine Event Raises Funds for Local Students

Suzanne Nagorka, Interior Designer

Close to 60 members and guests of the IIDA NC (International Interior Design Association, Northern California) North Bay City Center gathered in the sculpture garden of Sonoma County Museum on October 17 for our second annual Fall Art and Wine Event.  Over $2,000 was raised for the Museum’s Educational Program that brings art and museum tours to underserved students in Sonoma County.

Our TLCD Architecture Interior Design team (Domenica Sheets, Stacey Walker, and myself) made up half of the planning committee for the fundraiser, and we were also among the many industry sponsors who made the event possible.

Local wine, delicious Mexican food, tasty treats and a generous raffle enhanced the soiree, while face painting artist Clementine the Amazing provided a fun and festive activity for guests who wanted to honor the Dia de los Muertos theme with wearable sugar skull art.

Interior Designers and affiliated professionals were wowed by the Docent tours of the Museum’s three fabulous exhibits:  Artistry in Wood, Dia de los Muertos and an amazing Fiber Arts show.  IIDA NC is one of 30 worldwide IIDA chapters that leads the way for the next generation of design innovators by providing a forum for professional development and advancement of the Interior Design Industry.

Special thanks go to our Gold Level sponsors:  ARC/Bendheim Glass, LeGrand, Shaw Contract and Wolf Gordon.

The final IIDA NC North Bay City Center event of the year will be our annual Member Appreciation Event in December, which we are busy planning! For information on upcoming IIDA NC events, click here.
