The Southwestern New York Chapter of the American Red Cross invites everyone to join in once again at an exciting, fun-filled occasion where restaurants and food service businesses are invited to put their signature cuisines on display and out for the public to enjoy.
This is an exciting opportunity for local restaurateurs and caterers to show off their culinary specialties to members of the community. The American Red Cross is hosting Savor the Flavor: A Taste of Chautauqua County on Sunday, March 17 from noon to 3 p.m., at the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena.
One of the greatest things about Southwestern New York is enjoying food, friends and giving back to the community and the Savor the Flavor events puts all three under one roof. This special fundraiser has two goals in mind - to help promote the variety of tempting food establishments in the area and to enable the chapter to continue to meet the emergency needs of county residents.
Participants at last year’s Savor the Flavor event enjoyed good food and good company.
For only $25 per ticket, enjoy everything from specialty soups, elegant horse d'oeuvres, succulent meats and decadent desserts as well as having the opportunity to taste local wine and beer. In the seven years of Savor the Flavor events, the cost has not increased despite the rising cost of the basic services the Red Cross provides in Southwestern New York.
Local businesses and friends of the Red Cross are invited to become a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Diamond Sponsor for this event. The sponsors of the event support the American Red Cross with their donations and, in return, receive an advertisement in the Savor the Flavor program and tickets to the event. Becoming a sponsor of Savor the Flavor is a great way to show support for the American Red Cross.
In the past years, each event has had over 15 restaurants or caterers along with over 250 people that wine and dine together to celebrate the Red Cross. Due to the overwhelming success of the past year's event, it is recommended to purchase tickets in advance. To get tickets, visit the American Red Cross Office in Jamestown at 325 E. 4th St., 664-5115. The American Red Cross of Southwestern New York is a United Way Agency.
