The First Friday Fundraising Committee – from left, Carol Garsten, Donna Drako, Grail Nitsch, Jamie Lucia and Sharon Storms – is set to host a fundraiser Sunday at Nature Gallery.

The First Friday Committee has scheduled its annual fundraiser 5-8 p.m. Sunday at Nature Gallery, 296 State St.

The “Fun First Friday Fan” event will feature wine tasting, live music, tapas, a silent auction and the premiere of First Friday promotional videos.

All proceeds directly support promoting First Fridays, the monthly, year-round events in downtown Los Altos.

“There is no other First Friday event that I know of that features eight to 12 bands playing for the joy of music in their community year-round,” co-chairwoman Carol Garsten said in a release. “We don’t pay our musicians and we don’t close the streets. What we do is provide a great vibe in town and a fun, entertaining evening for everyone from kids to octogenarians.”

Many stores extend their hours on First Fridays and offer special promotions, discounts and complimentary refreshments.

The First Friday Committee seeks new members. The committee meets 7-8:30 p.m. the first and third Thursdays of the month at Nature Gallery.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $50.
