“An Evening Out at Home” with NextGen (Members Only)

May 17, 2016

This Saturday, May 21st, starting at 6PM, our NextGen members have a special annual event with our parent foundation for “An Evening Out at Home”.  This is a a two-tier event with a NextGen member potluck dinner and reception (drinks/dessert/music) at ARTISANworks.  The reception is $45 to attend — a special discount for our YP affiliated group.

  • 6PM: Pot-luck Dinner at CloudSmartz – 360 Degree View of Rochester
    For our NextGen Members this year, CloudSmartz will be hosting the pot-luck dinner portion of the evening at their offices atop the First Federal Building this Saturday at 6pm. Sunset Included!  See Saul Maniero for Potluck Google Doc.
  • 9PM: Following dinner, the reception will be at ARTISANworks 
    We’ll continue from dinner to ARTISANworks for dessert, drinks, and dancing to the music of Shine at the debut of ARTISANworks’ latest expansion, a New Orleans-style streetscape called The French Quarter, located at 565 Blossom Road.

If you have been wanting to become a member but have been putting it off, this week is a great week to get started or renew your membership — It’s an event where we get to mingle as a group, but also network with our parent foundation supporters.  Become a member here.

For this event, please RSVP to Saul Maneiro (sam@racf.org) to let him know you are coming.   From there, he will share the potluck Google Spreadsheet for dishes to share.

The Community Foundation’s premier annual event, An Evening Out At Home, was created in 1981 as a way to bring together members of the greater Rochester community for an elegant evening and, at the same time, raise awareness and support for the Community Foundation and its work.
We Look Forward to Seeing You May 21
Thank you to everyone who has registered for our 2016 gala! As a reminder, the evening starts at 6 p.m. with delicious meals and lively conversations in the homes of gracious supporters and friends. Then we’ll gather for dessert, drinks, and dancing to the music of Shine at the debut of ARTISANworks’ latest expansion, a New Orleans-style streetscape called The French Quarter, located at 565 Blossom Road.
Our sincere thanks to Tom and Heather Bonadio, the event’s honorary co-chairs.

How It Works
Every year, guests dine in small groups at the homes of Foundation supporters, starting at 6 p.m., and then gather at a special venue to mingle with party-goers from the other dinner parties. The dessert reception features locally made desserts and drinks and includes dancing. Past reception sites have included the renovated Sibley Building, George Eastman Museum, Village Gate, the Memorial Art Gallery, City Hall, and many other special locations. Past events have drawn 300 to 400 people. The 2015 gala raised more than $53,000.
