A benefit concert is being held in early June to help a Lodi business owner create a local nonprofit organization that will aid in building wells in Africa.

Gregg Lewis, owner of the Dancing Fox Winery and Bakery, along with volunteers for the Wine in 2 Water project, are hosting a benefit concert June 2 at Jessie's Grove Winery.

The concert will feature bands Molly's Revenge and The Northstar Session. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door.

Tickets are available online. Gates open at 4:30 p.m.

The event will feature free wine tasting by local wineries as well as food vendors and a silent auction. All proceeds will go the the Bear Creek Water Project to help build clean water wells for children in need.

Lewis began his Wine in 2 Water project by donating cans and bottles he had collected at his restaurant to Bear Creek Water.

From there he began envisioning Wine in 2 Water, which he is hoping to turn into a permanent nonprofit organization.

For more information, contact Gregg Lewis at 209-712-0611.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
