Celebrate the unique Upper Delaware River region with the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at the 9th annual Foods of the Delaware Highlands Gala on April 30 at Hawley’s Settlers Inn In Wayne County starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Gala also features a four-course farm-to-table dinner and wine tasting followed by an exciting live auction.
The evening begins with a wine tasting and silent auction at 5:30 p.m., with dinner at 7:00 p.m. The live auction and raffle cap the celebration during dessert. Gala tickets are $125 per person, which includes a $75 charitable gift to the Conservancy. Delicious gourmet cuisine will be prepared using locally grown ingredients.
This year, the Conservancy’s Foods of the Delaware Highlands Gala Dinner Committee is delighted to be supported by honorary co-chairs Gary Beilman, President and CEO of the Dime Bank; and Mark Ruffalo, actor, activist, and founder of Water Defense. Additional committee members include Jeanne Genzlinger, Nany Kiesendahl Bloch, Amy Litzenberger, Karen Lutz, Mary Sue Price, and Brenda Ruello.
Live and silent auctions and raffles offer exciting selections, including a relaxing stay at the Lodge at Woodloch; getaways to the Spicer Mansion in Mystic, Connecticut and the Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island; and a day of guided fly fishing at the Blooming Grove Hunting and Fishing Club.
