OSWEGO, NY – United Way board member Jim Mahoney has announced that the plans are set for the United WayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Annual Ã¢â‚¬ËœStone SoupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Holiday Luncheon.
Open to the public, the luncheon will be held Dec. 10 at 11:30 a.m. in St. JosephÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Parish Center on West First Street.
For a $5 donation attendees will enjoy a tasty lunch featuring delicious homemade soups from Aunt MaryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Catering, CanaleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Restaurant and VonaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Restaurant; salad courtesy of CÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Farms and Davis Brothers, fresh baked rolls from Bosco & Geers; desserts from Cakes Galore and SUNY Oswego Auxiliary Services; and coffee and cookies from Tim HortonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s.
All proceeds from the event, including the table decorations, consisting of Dements spaghetti sauce and pasta, provided by Giovanni Foods and PaulÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Big M, will be donated to food pantries throughout Oswego County.
Mahoney, who is serving as committee chair for the luncheon, is looking forward to a festive holiday event that will provide some much needed help for our area food pantries.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“With the increased demand that our food pantries will be facing this holiday season we are hoping that our holiday luncheon will help them meet that demand,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Mahoney. Ã¢â‚¬Å“In addition to the $5 donation we are asking attendees to please bring non-perishable food items that we can give to the food pantries as well so that the food pantries can keep their shelves stocked throughout the holidays.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Mahoney added that the luncheon would also feature live entertainment from the vocal group, Concinnity, who will add a festive atmosphere to the event by performing a number of holiday favorites.
