Tuscan Moon

Tuscan Moon – A Tribute to Michael Kerns” is set for Saturday August 23th at John Harvard’s Cabana Bar & Pool Complex at Holiday Valley. (Great weather is guaranteed but we will move inside if weather is unsuitable)

This event is the absolute favorite Ellicottville party, with over 200 people attending this upscale end of the summer event.  Put on by Rotary Club of Ellicottville Foundation for Youth to raise funds for their many worthy projects including their affiliate Family Support for Ellicottville.

By far the best food served at any venue, with many mouth watering entrees provided by the best restaurants in town, with their chef’s looking to show you their signature dish.  This year’s Italian specialties will provide many culinary surprises for those who attend, but wait until you see the dessert table Watson’s Chocolates abound with extra special cakes, cookies and tarts from Tom Kneeland .

When you arrive you are greeted with great hors d’ oeuvres served by students from ECS.

This year’s live entertainment is provided by WNY’s best Party Rock Band, The Strangers

 The Live and Silent auctions always provide great deals like Sabres & Bills Tickets, Cutco knives and many more great bargains.

Beyond the food and the company, this is the most fun events of the year and to think you it is helping a great cause and is tax deductible.  For those of you who knew Michael Kerns, you know that this is an event he would have loved.

Tickets will be available in many local outlets but you can order by phone (Credit cards accepted) call Kegs at 699-8758

Remember that this is Ellicottville so the dress is always casual.
