The Fourth Annual Friends of Matanzas Pass Preserve Wine Dinner was held at the Mango Street Inn on November 9,
2013. As in years past, it was hosted by Tree and Dan Andre. There was wonderful food prepared by Chef  (and Town
Councilman) Dan paired with wine selected by sommelier Tree. A sizable group of attendees each paid $100 for the
event with the proceeds going to further the goals of the Friends. There was also a highly competitive auction run by
County Commisioner Larry Kiker which generated another $2,000 to the cause of the Preserve. Below are some
photos taken at the event. (Thanks to Vicki Little for the photos.)
