FAIRFIELD — The Yippie Foundation, which helps youths build career skills at its local yogurt shop, will host a “Sunset in the Gardens” fundraiser May 9 at Vacaville’s Buck mansion.

Tickets include a glass of fine wine, silent auction and raffle from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the gardens of the historic building at 225 Buck Ave., according to the foundation’s founder, Sherilyn Henry, in a press release. Guests will have the opportunity to meet many of the Yippie students who are enrolled in the 11-month Yippie Yogurt Youth Job Training Program, she said.

To purchase tickets, visit the Yippie yogurt shop, 1955 W. Texas St., or Gillespie Abbey Carpets, 360 Chadbourne Road, in Fairfield, or visit www.eventbrite.com/e/sunset-in-the-gardens-tickets-10609674823 or www.yippiefoundation.org.

Yippie is an acronym for Youth Initiating Professional Preparedness In Employment. The Yippie Foundation aims to provide students with job-readiness skills, mentoring, paid work experience and job placement, Henry said.
