The Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts will host its annual honoree dinner at 6 p.m. on Sept. 19 at Francesca’s Banquets and Catering in Ilion.
This year’s honoree is the center’s Special Events Committee. The group of volunteers includes Michael Bell, Mena Cerone, Dora Czernecki, Alice Fake, Mary Ann George, Pat Kelly, Reina Merkelbach, Roland Randall, Delores Restante, Diane Roberts and Barbie Steciak. They will be honored and recognized for their dedication to the art center and the community for years of meritorious service and their passion for the arts.
The dinner is open to the public and the $50 ticket price will include dinner, including dessert and coffee. A cash bar will be available.
The proceeds from the ticket sales will be used to provide funding for the newly created MVCA Scholarship Fund on their behalf.
The scholarship fund will help to offset the costs of instruction and classes at the art center for students of all ages with limited means who seek education in all facets of the visual, musical, written and performing arts.
Reservations can be made by calling the MVCA at 823-0808.
