May 28, 2019 – -On June 11, 2019, the Almond PAC will hold our first annual- Almond Movers & Shakers Cocktail Reception, an Almond PAC fundraiser, at The Citizen Hotel in Sacramento. This event provides almond industry members the opportunity to visit with bipartisan legislators as they shake it up during an interactive mixology competition.

Four legislators will be competing against each other by mixing up their own signature cocktails using almond liquor and almond products. We are lucky, and very grateful, to have five almond industry members serve as judges for this event; Brian Wahlbrink, Sperry Farms; Christine Gemperle, Gemperle Orchards; Mayo Ryan, North State Hulling; Jeannine Campos Grech, Campos Brothers Farms and David Pohl, Pohl & Holmes, Inc.

This event is designed as an energetic reception where legislators can learn about the almond industry. We will share information, resources, educate our policy makers and elevate the industry’s collective power. Almond PAC events are essential in raising awareness of the California almond industry, while also providing state legislators with a better understanding of the scope, size, value and sustainability of California almonds. Any contribution to the Almond PAC is greatly appreciated.

We hope you will join us!
