3rd Annual NAPC
Thanksgiving Banquet & Food Drive
NAPC Chair, Jon Faust has announced that the 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Banquet and Food Drive is definitely on for this year. Following the closing of South Shores, we tried for many weeks to secure another suitable location and host for the event but were unsuccessful in that effort. We are very happy to announce that Karine Albano, formerly manager at South Shores, who in fact initiated and produced the 1st and 2nd Annual Dinners has found a new position as manager at CJ's Island Bar and Grille. She and the owner of CJ's has graciously offered to be our hosts for the event this year!
So, except for the new location, almost everything remains the same. The dinner is Saturday, November 14th at 5pm. Tickets are $20 per person in advance, $25 at the door and children under 12 are FREE. What IS new this year is the opportunity for people to buy their tickets online in advance. Seating is limited to 100 persons, so we are making 50 tickets available online and selling the remaining 50 tickets the old fashioned way to accommodate our neighbors who may not be online or who may not wish to purchase tickets that way.
Here is the link to the online ticket purchasing site:
The menu will include all the traditional Thanksgiving favorites and will include many delicious vegan and vegetarian choices. Iced tea and a champagne toast are complimentary and the cash bar will provide a full array of adult beverages.
Also new this year is an auction at the dinner where we will be offering a very limited edition of 10 extremely special RIF Raft Race Commemorative items all created by one of our local artists. We are keeping these a surprise until the night of the event!!! We're also keeping the artist's name a secret until the great reveal at the dinner, because if we told you who - you'd figure out what the items are!!!!
Again this year, we are offering our dinner guests the opportunity to help restock the food pantry at the First Congregational Church by accepting donations of canned goods and other non-perishable food items at the door. Cash proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will also go to the church to fund the purchase of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy items for the Community Dinner the church offers to our less fortunate neighbors at Thanksgiving and all throughout the year.
