JAMESTOWN — Reg Lenna Center for The Arts is hosting a fundraiser with food, drink and fun on their stage with Bag & String Wine Merchants, Friday, May 19 at 7 p.m.

A variety of wines paired with light appetizers will be offered as well as ideas for summer entertaining and enjoyment. Participants will be given a punch card to use at the five wine and appetizer stations — including desserts. Proceeds benefit the operation of Reg Lenna Center for The Arts, which will announce its 2017-18 season during the event.

Reg Board Member and Development Committee chairperson Mary Kohl is looking forward to the event. “We worked with Bag & String on a recent fundraiser that was well received,” said Kohl. She continued, “We’re offering participants the opportunity to choose the same wine more than once with their card purchase too if they prefer one style over another.”

The cost for the evening is $30 per person. No fees will be charged if purchased in person or over the phone. Online purchases include an additional convenience fee of $3. Those interested may call 716.484.7070 or visit our box office at 116 E. 3rd St. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Fifty spots are available for the event.
