On Friday, August 9 from 6:30-8:30 PM, Davis Whole Foods Market is hosting a beer and food tasting event, but there’s a twist—your ticket to enter is one used shovel!

Why shovels? In an effort to help the City of Davis and the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden with our quest to secure 400 used shovels for a campus and city sculpture project (read more), Whole Foods Market has generously offered to help us entice our community with a tasting featuring beer selections from Sacramento-based, Track 7 Brewing Company side-by-side with gourmet food pairings.

DATE: Friday, August 9
TIME: 6:30-8:30 PM
PLACE: Arboretum Terrace and Lois Crowe Patio & Whole Foods Market Davis
500 First Street, Davis (MAP)

Want to attend, but don’t have a used shovel? Five dollars will also gain your admittance! All proceeds to benefit the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum.

Can’t attend, but want to donate a used shovel? Drop off your used shovel at one of these locations.
