Cabaret Dinner to Benefit GMUHS

What good is sitting alone in your room on Halloween weekend? If you don’t want to go out in costume who could ask for anything more than an evening of comedy skits, music, singing and dancing? There is more: Throw in a dinner by a New York City chef, a live auction where you can bid on great items like a weeklong vacation in Aruba plus a raffle to win $250 to $1,000.  The Chester Rotary is holding this event on Saturday, Oct. 29 to benefit performing arts programs at Green Mountain Union High School. Raffle tickets are available even if you cannot attend the Cabaret and dinner.


The evening begins with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner, the live auction and raffle drawing and then a live cabaret performed by students and alumni from GMUHS. Among other items up for auction are a wooden playhouse, an original painting by internationally acclaimed artist and Chester resident Jeanne Carbonetti and a luxury coach chauffered ride for up to eight people. You can view the lot here.

The event is being held at the NewsBank Conference Center, 352 Main St., which is co-hosting. Tickets are only $30 and need to be purchased by Sunday Oct. 23. At the time of purchase, order your main course of salmon, beef or a vegetarian dish.
