    A fundraiser will be held at Belle Fiore Winery in Ashland from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 25, to raise money for an effort to create a special district to fund the Extension Service in Jackson County.
    Local wineries, restaurants and others have donated cases of wine, winery dinners and vacation packages, which will be auctioned off to fund the campaign to pass Measure 15-121, which would create the Jackson County 4-H, Master Gardener and Agricultural Service District.
    The proposed service district will be on the May 2014 ballot.
    Tickets to the event cost $50 before April 18 and $60 after. Call 541-552-4900 or see www.bellefiorewine.com for details.
