WRFA’s Jason Sample talks with Kate Ewer from Chautauqua County 4-H to learn more about the 2018 Have a Heart for 4-H Fundraiser – taking place Sunday, Feb. 25 in Mayville.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s 4-H Youth Development Program is excited to announce the 6th Annual Have a Heart for 4-H Green Tie Affair on Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018 at the Chautauqua Suites in Mayville.
The Green Tie Affair has become a necessary fundraiser for 4-H in Chautauqua County since losing major funding from the County in 2012. This year 4-H hopes to raise $25,000 that will directly fund 4-H programming in 2018. 4-H serves 325 youth with life-skills programming year-round. An additional 1,000 youth participate in one-time programming each year. 4-H connects youth to hands-on learning opportunities that help them grow into competent, caring, contributing members of society.
The fun begins at 3 p.m. with a basket raffle, dinner is served at 5 p.m. and the pie auction will follow dinner. This year’s meal includes salad, ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, applesauce, a dinner roll, and ice cream for dessert.
The event draws between 600 and 700 guests annually.
Tickets are now available for $25 from 4-H members or at the 4-H Office located at 3542 Turner Road in Jamestown. Table sponsorships are available for $200. Table sponsors receive eight dinner tickets, basket raffle tickets, a custom centerpiece sign, recognition on a thank you banner, placemat, and in local press.
