The Scarsdale Forum will host its fifth annual membership party, Winterfest, on Saturday, January 26 at the Scarsdale Woman’s Club from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Members of the Forum and their guests look forward to an evening of lively conversation and friendship to chase away the winter weather blues. Delicious dishes from local food vendors will be served as well as the home-brewed beers of resident brew-meister Bruce Wells. Member pianists and Angelo DiLoreto of the Manhattan School of Music will set the mood as guests stroll though the beautiful Scarsdale Woman’s Club.
A wine tasting hosted by Vintology and a food demonstration by Ellen Cohen of the Pampered Chef will provide additional entertainment as well as opportunities for shopping! Fifteen percent of all sales that evening will be donated to the Forum. Dessert will be served in the large dining room featuring the home baked goods of member bakers and village bakeries.
All members and their guests will receive a benefit journal that will include the history of the Forum written by our Village Historian and Forum Board Member Eric Rothschild. Commercial ads and personal messages can be purchased through the Journal Committee.
The Scarsdale Forum is a 108-year-old civic organization dedicated to improving life in Scarsdale. The Forum studies many issues affecting the Village and frequently provides input to governing bodies and elected officials on the local, county and state level via reports and statements prepared by its committees. Scarsdale residents are encouraged to join the Forum and come to the best party in town! All profits from the event will be used for the digitization of the Forum’s historical records and to support the public programs offered by the Forum throughout the year.
