The Oswego Lions Club will hold their 14th annual wine and beer tasting with silent auction Friday, March 9, at the American Foundry in Oswego.
The event is scheduled for 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., with pre-sale tickets $15 and $20 at the door the night of the event. Each person will be provided a complimentary wine glass or beer mug at the door.
“The Oswego Lions Club is looking forward to the wine and beer tasting with silent auction again this year,” said Steve Jurivich, president of the local chapter of Lions International. “The event has truly become one that the entire community looks forward to each March.”
“As we have for the past few years, there will be a live auction at the end of the event with local auctioneer Ted Sivers. He will be auctioning off a dinner for four at the high bidders home, courtesy of Ray Jock of LaParilla, Oswego’s newest restaurant. The meal will include appetizers, dinner and dessert. Another featured item for our live auction will be a wine cellar with wine refrigerator. Also, returning to the auction this year is a scratch off lottery ticket board.”
The annual event will also once again showcase many of the area’s finest beer vendors, and New York state and wineries including Lakeland Winery, Americana Vineyards, Ashley Lynn Winery, Buttonwood Grove Winery, Anthony Road Wine Company, and Young and Somers Winery, Eagle Beverage, Finger Lakes Distributors, and T.J. Sheehans.
The popular silent auction will include many donated items from businesses throughout the area. If businesses would like to donate a silent auction item there is still time by calling Karen Hammond at 342-0043 or Bob Bateman at 342-9866.
“We appreciate the donations that the many local businesses within the community have provided again this year,” said Hammond. “The business owners and managers continue to recognize the important role our club maintains within this community, and their donations and sponsorships show their commitment.”
