The second annual Uncork for the Arts 2010 took place this past weekend. But, it was more than another arts in Sacramento event. It was a fundraiser for the Developmental Disabilities Service Organization, a non-profit group that has been providing service options for adults with developmental disabilities in the Stockton and Sacramento communities since 1975. DDSO is best know for their art programs.

The event was held at a private residence near the American River Parkway. A large crowd of wine and art enthusiasts came out to enjoy gourmet appetizers, great wine from Gold Country wineries and creative art. The perimeter of the backyard displayed the creative talent by the adults with developmental disabilities. Guests enjoyed an evening of art; the student’s artwork was showcased and auctioned off throughout the evening.

Wine tasting complemented the art exhibit. At the event,
James Blake Wines released an exclusive California Red wine blend,"2007 Carita." To honor DDSO the wine bottle displayed a selected student’s artwork for the wine label.

DDSO’s art event was inspirational to guests, and the artists were ecstatic to mingle with the supporters and showcase their artwork. This fundraiser benefited DDSO’s Short Centers and Employment Plus, art programs created to support local artist’s talent in Sacramento and Stockton areas.
