Task Force thanks participants of pasta and wine tasting event
The Sacandaga Task Force For Senior Living wishes to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who helped make our sixth annual pasta and wine tasting event a complete success. Held on March 7, at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Northville, a total of 10 local restaurants contributed some of their best dishes to the evening. During the evening those present were able to vote for their favorite dish and this year the winner was Buffalo chicken tortellini. The winning restaurant will receive a plaque which they can display in their dining area.
Our guests enjoyed all of this delicious food, and were also able to pair some tasty wines from the local liquor store with the pasta. The dessert was handled as always by a former member of the Task Force, who brought many sweet treats, including of course, her signature rice pudding.
We must also thank students from the Northville Central School. These students, under the supervision of board member Carla Williams, set up all the tables and dressed them with tablecloths, napkins, and silverware. Their help was invaluable.
During the event the Task Force sold chances for a 50-50 prize. The amount collected totaled just over $200. The woman who won her half of the prize very graciously donated it back to the Task Force. Thank you.
Thanks also to several members of the Northville community who contributed by serving the food, and we mustn’t forget our friend from Mayfield who took charge of pouring the wine.
This annual event is one of our Task Force’s major fundraisers, and the money we collect goes to our Senior Transportation program, which includes both driving seniors to medical appointments, and taking them on trips to cultural, musical, and scenic sites in the area.
Again, thank you to all who were involved in this very successful evening.
