JAMESTOWN - Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County's 4-H Program is very excited for its second annual "Have a Heart for 4-H Dinner."
4-H volunteers, parents, members and community supporters are excited for the second annual 4-H benefit dinner to be held on Sunday, Feb. 17 from noon to 5 p.m., at the Gerry Rodeo Grounds and Conference Center. Dinner tickets will be available at the door for $20 per meal, while children 5 and under are free. Pre-sale tickets are currently on sale for $15 each at the Ag Center in Jamestown. Call 664-9502 ext. 214 to purchase.
Robert Cross of 3 C's Catering, a 4-H volunteer and alumni, has donated his expertise again for the "Have a Heart for 4-H Dinner, from our family to yours" to provide an exquisite dinner to include, fresh carved pork, meatballs, corn, salad, potatoes and delicious homemade desserts.
Dinner tickets are not needed dinner to attend the event. 4-H is welcoming everyone to what is shaping up to be another excellent set of auctions. In 2012, 4-H raffled over $250 items in a basket auction. Tickets this year will be $5 and include five chances at winning items. Participants do not need to be present to win, they must leave a name and phone number on each ticket deposited into a selected items bag. Winners will receive a phone call and be responsible for picking up the item on Sunday evening or Monday at the Gerry Rodeo Grounds.
This year's silent auction is also shaping into a spectacular event with over 20 large ticket items to be available for bidding. Items include: two Darien Lake tickets; a Kindle Fire HD; a brand new John Deere snow blower and leaf blower; an Adirondack chair; a Fancher Chair Company chair; a bowling package including a ball bag, dinner and bowling supplies; two round trip Southwest Airlines tickets, up to $400; an emergency response scanner; a one year auto maintenance certificate; a flowering cherry tree; a registered Morgan horse; Sabers tickets; a 50+ piece tool set; $500 off a new vehicle; a free hotel stay; and much more.
In addition to excellent auction items, the first 500 kids in attendance will receive a voucher for a free kids meal at Bob Evans.
The community outreach, volunteer commitment and overall support has been overwhelming and is proving to make the second annual "Have a Heart for 4-H Dinner" a benefit to remember. Dan Warren of Media One Broadcasting will provide musical entertainment.
4-H invites everyone to join them for a day full of fun for a great cause.
