The Muse 2019 – Gary Edwards

The Sonoma Community Center is pleased to announce the selection of Gary Edwards as our 2019 Muse.  Each year we look for a person who inspires us to achieve our mission of brightening lives through the arts, education and community-centered activities.  That’s what a Muse does: provides the inspiration we all need to do our best.

The Sonoma Community Center’s Muse celebration is our signature annual benefit to honor those who have inspired community and imparted a lasting impression on the Valley we all call home.  Since moving to Sonoma in 1994 Gary has become an integral part of the community, serving with the Rotary Club of Sonoma Valley, as a founding member of Citta Slow Sonoma, serving on the Sonoma Planning Commission and being elected to the Sonoma City Council.  For over fifteen years he has has wrangled donations, organized fellow chefs, and cooked turkeys for the Center’s free Thanksgiving Dinner, one of the innumerable ways that Gary exemplifies the civic-minded nature he is so well known for.

This years Muse celebration will be held on Saturday, August 10, 2019.  The event will take place on our historic campus in the very heart of our community.  Mark your calendar as we are finalizing the details for what is sure to be a lively evening.
