Though it may still be cold and snowy outside, it's not too early to start thinking about the Smith Opera House's annual “Medley of Tastes” fund-raiser. The 2005 food and wine tasting event is scheduled for Monday, June 20, at Houghton House on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus. Advance sale $25 tickets go on sale at noon Jan. 10. Limited to 400 patrons, this event has completely sold-out for the past two years. Tickets may be purchased at The Smith box office or by calling 315-781-LIVE or toll-free 866-355-LIVE.
One of the region’s premier events of its kind, nearly fifty vendors from restaurants and wineries throughout the Finger Lakes are expected to share their finest samples or “tastes” with event attendees. In addition to admission to the event, each patron receives a complimentary limited edition 2005 “Medley of Tastes” wine glass and buffet tray. There will also be exciting raffle opportunities featuring gift certificates and products from Finger Lakes region restaurants and wineries and the opportunity to vote for best “Food,” “Wine” and “Desert” tastes.
All proceeds generated by the “Medley of Tastes” go to support the family and children’s programming at the historic Geneva landmark.
If you only heard about last year’s sold-out “Medley,” then be sure to get your tickets early and don’t miss out.
The Smith Opera House is located at 82 Seneca Street in Geneva. The Smith is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, the City of Geneva, the Town of Geneva and by contributions from individual members.
