The Newtown Rotary Club will celebrate its Fifth Annual Hope On The Vine event on Saturday, April 26th, from 6:00 to 10:00pm, at the River Room in the newly renovated Visitor Center at Washington Crossing State Park. The public is welcome, but please register in advance on their website, www.newtownrotary.org. Ticket price is $75 per person and includes food and beverage throughout the evening, raffled door prizes, music, auction guide, event booklet and plenty of parking.
It promises to be a fun evening and Event Chairman, Chuck Charlton, hopes to set a new record. “Last year, we raised over $15,000, of which $3,250 was donated to Polio Plus, and most of the remaining funds were distributed to 17 local organizations,” said Chuck.
This year’s event will feature food by Chef Joe Garvey, music by the Newtown Chamber Orchestra, excellent international assortment of wines, a wine/cheese pairing education by Beth Tentilucci, and silent and public auctions by a professional auctioneer to support many local and international causes.
“As Hope On The Vine has grown over the years, we realized that we needed a new venue,” added Chuck. “We are very pleased that the River Room at the renovated Visitor Center at Washington Crossing State Park became available. It’s a spacious room, with magnificent views of the Delaware River and steeped in history. We had great items for the auction last year and expect to do even better this year. If anyone wants to help by donating auction items, they can find a list of recommendations on our website.”
