JAMESTOWN - Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County's 4-H Program is very excited for its second annual Have a Heart for 4-H Dinner.
4-H volunteers, parents, members and community supporters are excited for the second annual 4-H Benefit dinner to be held Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. at the Gerry Rodeo Grounds and Conference Center. Dinner tickets will be available at the door for $20 per meal. Children 5 and under are free. Pre-sale tickets are on sale for $15 each at the Ag Center in Jamestown. Call 664-9502 Ext. 214 to purchase.
Robert Cross of 3 C's Catering, a 4-H volunteer and alumnus, has donated his expertise again to provide a dinner to include fresh carved pork, meat balls, corn, salad, potatoes and homemade desserts.
Dinner tickets are not required to attend the event. 4-H is welcoming everyone to what is shaping up to be another excellent set of auctions. In 2012, 4-H raffled more than 250 items in a basket auction. Tickets this year will be $5 and include five chances at winning items of choice. It's not necessary to be present to win, but a name and phone number must be included on each ticket deposited into a selected items bag. If the winner's ticket is drawn, he or she will receive a phone call and be responsible for picking up the item Sunday evening or Monday at the Gerry Rodeo Grounds.
This year's silent auction is also shaping into a spectacular event with more than 20 large ticket items to be available for bidding. Items include two Darien Lake tickets, Kindle Fire HD, new John Deere snow blower and leaf blower, Adirondack Chair, Fancher Chair Company Chair, bowling package including a ball bag, dinner and bowling supplies, two round-trip Southwest Airline Tickets up to $400, emergency response scanner, one-year auto maintenance certificate, flowering cherry tree, registered Morgan horse, Sabres tickets, 50-plus piece tool set, $500 off a new vehicle, free hotel stay and much more.
In additional to auction items, the first 500 kids in attendance will receive a voucher for a free kids meal at Bob Evans.
The community outreach, volunteer commitment and overall support has been overwhelming and is proving to make the second annual Have a Heart for 4-H a benefit to remember. Dan Warren of Media One Broadcasting will provide musical entertainment.
4-H invites everyone to join them for a day full of fun for a great cause.
The Chautauqua County 4-H is still collecting for monetary and auction donations. If you think you or your business may be able to help or for more information, contact the 4-H Office at Cornell Cooperative Extension 664-9502, Ext. 214.
