Winter Delights 2016, Successful Fundraiser

On Wednesday December 14th, Pershing Field Garden Friends held its 13th Annual Holiday Fundraiser, Winter Delights, at the Dante Alighieri. We had an excellent turnout, the company was outstanding, and the food was delicious. The culmination of our Solstice Series was a huge success due to the generosity of our members, local merchants, musicians, and artists.

We are thankful to Central Ave Liquors who sponsored our event and to those members who donated tricky tray items along with LuLu’s Hair Zone, Stop & Shop, Cathy King Pottery and artists Grigory Gurevich and Fran Eber. A special thanks to Susan Newman who designed our promotional materials, Tony at Remco Press for printing our posters and to Square 1 for supplying an array of delicious desserts.

Thanks to our volunteers Christine Rock, Renee Cerreta, Michael Cerreta, Maria & Claudio Ambrossi, Tim Keating and Celeste Ruggia; who assisted us throughout the night with our food and drink service, tricky tray prizes and 50/50 raffle. We could not have done it without their help. We are also thankful for the support of our local neighborhood groups; Washington Park Association, the Leonard Gordon Park Conservancy and the Hamilton Park Conservancy.

The night would not have been complete without the musical talents of the Bottomless Mimosas and the Hudson City Rats. The joint was jumpin’ as some folks took to the dance floor. A good time was had by all! We had a fun and profitable night ringing in the holiday season and look forward to an outstanding 2017. Cheers!
