The Mission Point Lighthouse Friends, in conjunction with Bowers Harbor Vineyards, is sponsoring an art competition to design a wine bottle label featuring Mission Point Lighthouse.

They’re down to the final three artists in the competition, and they need YOUR help to choose the winner. The final vote will be cast and the winner revealed at the 3rd annual wine label selection event at Bowers Harbor Vineyards on Friday, April 6, at 6 p.m.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

Attendees at this event will be able to vote for their favorite artwork, and the winning entry will be featured on the “Bowers Harbor Lighthouse Pino Grigiot” to be issued this spring.

While the final three pieces of artwork are held under a closely guarded secret vault at an undisclosed location, we can tell you that the three artist finalists are Ruth Kitchen, Janet Oliver and Jim Smania.

The event costs $10 and includes two wine tastings, hors d’oeuvres, and an opportunity to vote for the artwork of your choice. The winner will be chosen by popular public vote, via cash donation, of those attending the event (so bring extra cash to vote for your favorite).

While the winner receives $250 and their artwork featured on this special wine bottle, this is also a fundraiser that directly benefits Mission Point Lighthouse, with the funds used for improvements to the building and educational displays.

Bowers Harbor Vineyards is located at 2896 Bowers Harbor Road on the Old Mission Peninsula. Visit their website here.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
