100 Anniversary Celebration Gala!

  • Saturday, May 4, 2019, 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Help Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wayne County celebrate 100 years!

This one-time event is a time to connect with old friends and make new friends all while having fun.


During the evening, be sure to watch the ongoing slide show of the past and present and find your friends and neighbors amongst the photos! The Red Hot & Blue Band will provide music to dance the night away or just enjoy the company of others. A BBQ catered dinner will be served, followed by a silent and live auction. A free raffle for door prizes will be featured throughout the evening. This event will also kick off our capital campaign for the next phase of our building upgrade.

For more than 100 years, Cornell Cooperative Extension has served the citizens of Wayne County. We want to do so much more and need to upgrade our technology and learning spaces. Our meeting rooms have not been updated in 25 years. We lack the necessary funding to upgrade the staff and participant areas, including our lighting - our flourescent bulbs are quickly burning out & we need funding to convert the entire building to LED. Help us redo the entire activity room and other staff and public spaces in the building. As you are aware, we were able to update the infrastructure and energy efficiency several years ago - now on to phase 2!

If you have items that we could use in the auctions, or if you would like to make a donation to the event, please call the number below.

Enjoy a full course BBQ dinner, relax to tunes from the Red Hot and Blue Band, and have fun with the Live & Silent Auctions!
