ATASCADERO — The Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival Committee gave the Charles Paddock Zoo $10,000 from the 2018 Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival.
Every year the committee donates to the Charles Paddock Zoo and other community organizations using proceeds from the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival, now known as The Central Coast RESERVE Experience.
“The 2018 Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival Committee is pleased to donate $10,000 to the Atascadero Charles Paddock Zoo to continue their great work on the animal habitats according to the zoo master plan. It is important to the committee to give back not only to the zoo but to other great community projects that benefit the residents of Atascadero,” said Barbie Butz, chairwoman of the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival Committee.
The committee plans to continue to give back to the Charles Paddock Zoo and community from some of the proceeds made by the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival, now known as The Central Coast RESERVE Experience. Every ticket purchased from The Central Coast RESERVE Experience goes toward helping our community. Attendees can purchase early bird tickets to the Central Coast RESERVE Experience until May 1, at www.centralcoastreserve.com. After May 1, the early bird sale expires and the tickets return to normal prices. Attendees can choose from three different tickets: general admission, general admission plus, and deluxe. Each ticket offers a variety of different benefits, ranging from early admission to entry into Magic Behind the Glass, an exclusive pairing and tasting experience.
The Central Coast RESERVE Experience opens to general admission at 4 p.m. on June 22. The festival continues to take place in the Atascadero Lake Park and the Charles Paddock Zoo.
