A Multi Chamber Mixer was held at Sunnylands on Oct. 15th. This is the 2nd annual event that Sunnylands Center and Gardens has hosted. The event included nine Chambers of Commerce from the Valley that were part of this cooperative effort. The event was from 4 to 6 and a limited number of tickets were available.

The garden area was outlined with vendors of food and refreshments from local area businesses. Each vendor showcased their most popular menu item. In many cases there was more that one item at the vendors site.Guests walked from vendor to vendor sampling all the delicious foods and beverages served. Items ranged from sandwiches of prime rib, sausages and meat balls, soups, tasty small appetizers, fruits and cheeses and lots of delicious dessert items. About 40 vendors showed their products to the guests.

The guests could view the Sunnylands Center and walk the garden area, many were first time visitors. Entertainment was provided by both Indio and Shadow Hills High School Bands. Local Business leaders,politicians and Chamber members were part of the guest list. White chairs and tables for guests to sit stood out among the green of the lawn area.

The Sunnylands Center and Gardens is open to the public and entrance to tour the home and grounds is by reservation only.
