Prepare for the Holidays
with the 1759 Vought House!
It’s hard to believe, but the holidays ARE coming! Will you be ready? “Temptations for the Discriminating Host and Guest” await attendees at a festive fundraiser benefiting the 1759 Vought House, A Revolutionary War Loyalist Homestead.
The party, to be held on Friday, October 24th from
6–8 pm at Valley Crest Farm and Preserve, will present a fun way to prepare for the parties ahead: a sampling of wine, punch, appetizers, and even a few suggested distinctive gifts will be offered.
This tasting comes with a twist: the punch and appetizers come with recipes—and guests can bring their own special holiday hors d’oeuvres favorites and enter them for judging. A prize will go to the winner!
The wine tasting, arranged by ShopRite Liquors of Clinton, will highlight reasonably priced wines you might want to buy by the case for a large holiday party; sparkling wines for special occasions and New Year’s Eve; and quality wines to give as gifts—or consume yourself with a smaller group of friends.
Non-drinkers are part of the scene, too, with a selection of punches provided—with recipes, so you can recreate them for your abstainers and designated drivers! And the appetizers will appeal to the home chef: most will be tried-and-true home-made holiday specials, and have recipes available. Please bring your own favorite for judging as a prize awaits. (Be sure to email the recipe to email@example.com by Oct. 20th). Sample them all, collect your favorite recipes and you will be ready for a super party.
And there is a bonus: a few distinctive and original gifts have been selected for you to browse, fire up your gift-giving imagination, and even buy. From bicycle locks to books to chocolate and crystal, there will just be a smattering—but they will be wonderful!
This holiday tasting is $45 per person for those who reserve by October 13th; after that, or at the door, the price is $55 per person. Checks may be made payable to 1759 Vought House and mailed to Melissa Mohlman, 5 Travis Hill Farm, Hampton, NJ 08827.
Any questions, please contact Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org. It takes place in at Valley Crest Farm and Preserve, 14 Allerton Road in Clinton Township, which has graciously donated the use of the Overlook Room and Patio. Come have fun and support this exciting historic preservation project!
