KENNEDY GOLD MINE FOUNDATION CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF PRESERVING THE KENNEDY GOLD MINE

The evening at the beautiful grounds around the iconic Kennedy Mine headframe includes a catered dinner, no host beer and wine, music by Double Edge, and a silent auction and raffle.

The 20th Anniversary event will honor founding members of the Kennedy Mine Foundation for recognizing and acting to keep the historic gem available to the public: Kevin Bonneau, Susan Bragstad, Bob Devlin, Rich Escamilla, Georgia Fox, Carolyn Fregulia, Dick and Dot Haislet, Mike Hewitt, Doug Ketron, Aprille Phil, and MaryAnn and Frank Tortorich.

To commemorate the anniversary, the Foundation has commissioned a limited edition 16” by 20” poster, featuring an original painting of Kennedy Tailing Wheel No. 1 by Ione artist, George Lambert. Tailing Wheel No. 1 stands three stories tall at the lower entrance to the Kennedy Mine property on Jackson Gate Road. The posters are available for $20.00 at the Kennedy Mine gift store and at the Amador County Chamber of Commerce office, 115 Main Street, Jackson.

Twenty years ago, the Kennedy Mine Foundation received the keys to the historic Kennedy Gold Mine, once one of the world’s richest gold mines, and today, a rich depository of California’s gold mining history. The Foundation is celebrating the anniversary and its mission of preservation, restoration and education.

The Kennedy Mine was at the 5912-foot depth when it closed in 1942 due to WWII, and was considered one of the deepest mines in the world. At the dinner, the Foundation will kick off its “Dig Deep” campaign with a funding goal of $35 per foot of mine depth to preserve and restore the historic headframe, buildings and property.

Tickets are $40 each, $75 for a couple and are available online at www.KennedyGoldMine.com.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Kennedy Mine on weekends, and at the offices of the Amador Council of Tourism (209.267.9249) and Amador Chamber of Commerce (209.223.0350).
