Annual Fundraiser Dinner Raffle
When: April 6, 2019, at 7 p.m.
Winning Ticket Drawing: March 16, 2019, at 3 p.m.
This annual event is one of the highlights of the year! The winning ticket holder and seven guests will dine in high style in the Museum’s Dining Room, featuring regional dishes from around the United States. Created and served by the students of The School of Business and Hospitality at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, the evening will start with drinks and hors-d’oeuvres from the Pacific Northwest, including smoked salmon, Asian-influenced beef, and tofu. After moving to the Dining Room, a New Orleans appetizer of smoked duck ham with pears and onions will begin the meal, followed by New England clam chowder for the soup course. Next, from Wisconsin, a pear salad with blue cheese and shallot vinaigrette will be served. After an intermezzo of tropical citrus sorbet, a South West seafood course of chipotlé-seared scallop with pear and sundried tomato polenta will be served, followed by a Heartland-style entrée of carved herb-and-garlic-crusted loin of beef with classic au jus lie and potato cake. While a dessert of Florida key lime pie and coconut panna cotta is being prepared, guests will be treated to a tour of the first floor of the museum by Jennifer Snyder, administrator of Packwood House Museum. The memorable evening will conclude as the diners retire to the Reception Room to enjoy an aperitif and reminisce about this unforgettable evening.
