The 2009 Taste of Baldwinsville, the primary fundraising event for the Baldwinsville Volunteer Center, returns March 7 at the CNY Family Sports Center on Jones Road.
"The CNY Family Sports Center's generous donation of their space has let more and more people enjoy the Taste of Baldwinsville," said Trish Hippolito, chairperson for the Taste of Baldwinsville. "We're going to make this year's event the best yet."
Taste of Baldwinsville will feature specialties from area restaurants and attendees will have the chance to vote on their favorites. Live and silent auctions will offer valuable products and services donated by local businesses. Anyone who would like to volunteer support, donate auction items or be a participating restaurant should contact Nancy Conley of the Volunteer Center at 638-0251.
The Baldwinsville Volunteer Center mobilizes people and resources to fulfill needs within the community. Its programs include transporting senior citizens; the Christmas Bureau, which provides food and gifts to families and elderly shut-ins; mentoring school children; promoting community involvement and opportunities for youth, and an information and referral help-line to let people know about community resources and promote volunteer opportunities.
