Eleventh Annual Dinner with the Arts benefits the St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy’s mission

The 11th annual Dinner for the Arts (Inside & Outside), St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy’s only major annual fundraiser, will look slightly different. This year, supporters will come INSIDE the church where they will receive a small charcuterie box and a glass of wine to enjoy as they take in a short, 15-minute performance from one of the Academy’s studios. After the performance, pick up your 4 Course Gourmet Meal to take OUTSIDE and enjoy at your home! All happening at St. Peter’s, 149 Genesee Street, Geneva, NY 14456 – Sunday, April 24, 2022.

This year’s details:

● Dinner: Meal orders can be placed online HERE by choosing a time slot (4:30pm, 5:30pm or 6:30pm). There is a choice between a meat or vegetarian option for the main course. All meals are gluten free. You can also add your choice of wine, either Finger Lakes red or Finger Lakes white to your order. Please save your emailed receipt and present it to the volunteers at pick up. Diners sign up for a specific time to come INSIDE to attend the student showcase and then move into the parish hall to pick up dinner and go OUTSIDE to enjoy at home.

● Video Presentation: This year will again have a video element for folks to enjoy from home. The video will include an update on our new building and an opportunity to get to know this year’s award winners; Alumni award recipient, Andrea Belding Elson and Community Award for Extraordinary Support for Music & the Arts recipients Dave and Brenda Rickey. We will also be honoring Michael Covin from The Beef and Brew for his years of generous support to the Dinner. A link to this video will be provided on our website as well as on social media platforms on the day of the dinner.
