Exclusive arts fundraiser has few tickets left

GENEVA – Twenty tickets remain available for the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission’s new exclusive gala fundraiser, Eat Your Art Out!

Today is the deadline to buy tickets for the event, which will be Thursday at the Herrington Inn and Spa Pump House, 15 S. River Lane. The night begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by dinner and live auction from 7 to 9 p.m.

Tickets are $100 each and are available online at www.geneva.il.us or by phone at 630-938-4530. Eat Your Art Out! replaces Dancing with the Geneva Stars, which ended its run after five years. Tickets were limited to 150 guests. 

“We are very pleased with ticket sales,” event chairwoman Alexia Monaco said. “We are considering it a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day after the holiday.”

Monaco said the event is planned as an elegant evening with a sit-down formal dinner of three savory courses and one dessert with three wine pairings.

Herrington Executive Chef Jason Tsoris will be inspired to create culinary masterpieces based on local art. Local artists’ work to be featured are paintings by Len Bielefeldt and Jan Schmuckal; glass artisans Don and Ellen Ljung; and sculptor Larry Johnson.

Additional art pieces will be sold during the fundraiser.

The goal is to raise $5,000 to support the cultural arts commission’s annual events, which include the Geneva Film Festival and Shakespeare in the Park.
