Tickets for the 2011 Taste of Baldwinsville will go on sale starting Saturday Feb. 5.
The 2011 Taste of Baldwinsville will be held from 7 to 11 p.m. at the CNY Family Sports Centre on Jones Road. It is the primary fundraising event for the Baldwinsville Volunteer Center.
"We sell out of tickets almost every year, so we encourage people to buy their tickets early, and save a few dollars on the second ticket," said Chris Monica, chairperson for the Taste of Baldwinsville.
The tickets are $30 per person. Anyone purchasing two tickets before Feb. 26 will receive $5 off the second ticket. Tickets may be purchased from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday Feb. 7 at the Baldwinsville Volunteer Center, 44 Oswego St., in the village. After that date, tickets will be available at the center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday through Feb. 22. People may also request tickets by sending a check, payable to the Baldwinsville Volunteer Center, to the above address. For additional information, call 638-0251.
The Taste of Baldwinsville will feature specialties from area restaurants such as Tabatha's Family Restaurant, Ramona's Gourmet Dressings and Tops Friendly Markets. Attendees will have the chance to vote on their favorites along with our special guest judges. A sampling of beverages will also be available. Live and silent auctions will offer valuable products and services donated by local businesses.
Any one who would like to donate auction items or be a participating restaurant should contact Nancy Conley of the Volunteer Center at 638-0251.
