This year Literacy Volunteers of Oswego County (LVOC) will feature many unique items in raffles and auctions during the 4th Annual Diane Falise Memorial Scrabble Fest to be held on Friday, April 23, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., at the Oswego Elkâ€™s Lodge, 132 W. Fifth St., Oswego. Participants will enjoy Scrabble, raffles, auctions, door prizes, delicious hors dâ€™oeuvres, a cash bar and lots of fun!
This yearâ€™s raffles are sure to excite everyone. â€œThe Perfect Eveningâ€ raffle includes an overnight stay at Pleasant Beach Inn in Fair Haven. To round out the perfect evening, the winner will also receive a gift certificate for dinner sponsored by Step One Creative, a bottle of Asti Spumanti, and a box of Stoneâ€™s chocolates. There will also be a Quilt Raffle for a lovely quilt designed and donated by Oswego resident Margaret Mulcahey. A 50/50 raffle and a DVD player raffle round out this yearâ€™s Scrabble Fest raffles.
One of the live auction items at this yearâ€™s event is a Dinosaur BBQ catered party for 20 people. Valued at $200, this item would be a great prize for any BBQ lover. Another great auction item will be a dinner party for 8 prepared at your home by Chef Shawna Gallton from Kristiâ€™s Restaurant & Bar. Completing the live auctions will be a meat smoker BBQ package.
â€œThere is nothing more exciting than Scrabble Fest.â€ said LVOC Executive Director Jane Murphy. â€œThe raffles and auctions will put this yearâ€™s Scrabble Fest over the top!â€
