Friday, August 18 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
In Seneca County alone, there are more than 3700 families in need that depend on the Seneca County House of Concern, the Seneca Falls Backpack Program, and Trevor’s Gift. These organizations rely on our support as community members and business owners to help them be successful to their cause. On Friday, August 18, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. we will be holding the 3rd Annual Taste & Tunes Festival which features local wineries, breweries, restaurants, and musicians to benefit these local charities. The event will take place at Generations Bank Headquarters, 20 East Bayard Street in Seneca Falls, where there will be a large event tent set up. If you would like to be a sponsor or make a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (315)568-1151. We hope you will help support these great organizations and we can’t wait to see you in August!
