The Baldwinsville Volunteer Center has set the date for the 2011 Taste of Baldwinsville.
Scheduled for March 5, the event will be hosted by the CNY Family Sports Centre on Jones Road.
The Taste of Baldwinsville is the primary fundraiser for the center featuring food favorites from local restaurants, voted on by a judging panel and attendees. Live and silent auctions throughout the event will offer valuable products and services donated by many local businesses.

Arvantides DDS, Sabre Demolition, Seneca Federal Savings & Loan Association, State Farm Insurance - Linndsy Luu and Suzanne Shapero DDS.
