Local food, beer and wine featured
The Haldane School Foundation (HSF) invites all members of the community to feast on cuisine from local restaurants and caterers and to sample the region’s finest craft beer and wine at its 2013 spring fundraiser — A Taste of the Valley.
The event, which will be held at Glynwood Farm at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, will feature food from many of the area’s finest restaurants, including Hudson Hil’s, Sukhothai, Riverview Restaurant, Cathryn’s Tuscan Grill, Homespun Foods, Glynwood, Nature’s Pantry, Fresh Company, B&L Catering, Moo Moo’s Creamery and others. Wine from local wineries will be served. Craft beer tastings will be provided by Peekskill Brewing Company, compliments of Brewmaster and Haldane parent Jeff O’Neil.
“The HSF’s annual fundraiser at Glynwood is always our most popular event,” said Event Co-chair Pam Schumann. “This year, the continued support of Glynwood and the generosity of our local businesses made it possible for the foundation to adopt this exciting new format, in which attendees will get to sample the fare of the talented chefs, vintners and brewers working right here in the Hudson Valley.”
The Taste of the Valley fundraiser will take place in the Main House of Glynwood Farm. Tickets are on sale now for $60 per person. To purchase tickets online go to haldaneschoolfoundation.org. For more event information, contact Schumann at 914-325-9445 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
