SARATOGA SPRINGS – In its fifth year, this event has come up with a magic formula to kick off the summer season: ambiance, music, polo, food and drink, and, of course, fun! The 5th Annual Music & Mingling event to benefit the Adult & Senior Center of Saratoga is scheduled for Thursday, May 28, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Saratoga Polo Fields. Mr. and Mrs. Vincent Riggi are serving as Honorary Event Chairs.
This is one big party and all proceeds support the Senior Center’s programs. Guests will feast on gourmet foods prepared by Old Daley Catering, a Sushi and Sake tasting by Sushi Yoshi and ZipZang, and an open bar that will feature a full assortment of high-end spirits from The Great American Wine Company, Bulleit Bourbon, Casamigos Tequila and Saratoga Water with choice beers from Saratoga Eagle.
Other highlights of the evening include live dance music by “Grand Central Station,” James & Sons Tobacconists cigar tastings, “Fashion Inspirations” by Life Rocks Jewelry and Saratoga Trunk, an extensive interactive and silent auction featuring Tom Durkin, tarot cards with Mary Shimp and a photo booth with Heather Bohm-Tallman.
After food, drink, polo and mingling – top off the night with sweets compliments of The Candy Company of Saratoga Springs, Kilwin’s and Healthy Living Market. There will also be a special announcement to kick off the 60th Anniversary of the Senior Center.
This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Adult & Senior Center of Saratoga. This non-residential community center serves over 1,200 members by providing a social environment with programs tailored to adults and seniors. The facility serves as a community hub where seniors can maintain an independent lifestyle by making new friends, sharing a meal, taking a healthy living class or learning a new skill. The social interaction provided by these programs is essential to the physical and mental health of the seniors in our community.
Admission is $100 (after May 22 price increases to $125) and includes all food, entertainment and an open bar. Reservations can be made at saratogaseniorcenter.org or by calling (518) 584-1621.
