Afton – Nelson County, Virginia
Another Elegant Evening of Jazz is in the history books. As with those in the past, the 2008 event had folks swaying into the night with jazz favorites, great food, and fantastic wines and beer from Blue Mountain Brewery and Nelson area wineries.

This is one of the larger fundraisers for the Rockfish Valley Community Center.
