Mark your calendars for Saturday August 14th (6:30pm - 11pm) for a special fundraising event called 'Taste of the Season'. The event will be held at The Inn at Oneonta, 7729 Mary Ingles Hwy, Melbourne, KY 41059. and will feature the following events and treats:
- Special Performances by Highlands Theatre Program
- Dinner (pig roast)
- Live Music
- Wine, Bourbon, and Cigar tastings (priced separately) featuring Elk Creek Vineyards, Straus Tobacconist, and more
- Cash Bar
- Live Auction
The two beneficiaries of this amazing event are the Standing Room Only Theater boosters program and the Henry Hosea House. The event will be a celebration of Highland's talented students and preview of the 2010/2011 HHS theatre season. I have written in the past about Standing Room Only and the Highlands Theater program and the amazing progress they are making at creating a first class high school program and this is yet another step toward achieving that mission.
The Henry Hosea House is also a great charitable organization in Newport that was started by the Hosea family of Fort Thomas. The Henry Hosea House is dedicated to serving those in need in the Campbell County area - specifically Newport. The charity was started in 1992 when ECHO was given a tremendous gift by the Henry Hosea Family. David and Marcia Hosea bought and donated a former VFW hall that is memorialized for David Hosea's Father and Grandfather. Thus, the Henry Hosea House was founded at 901 York Street in Newport, Kentucky. The house now serves on average about 150 meals an evening to those that are less fortunate or having a difficult time.
