Wood Library trustees invite the public to a gala fundraiser to be held Friday, September 7, 2012, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at Sonnenberg Mansion and Gardens, 150 Charlotte Street, Canandaigua, NY.

The event will feature catered delights from A Touch of Class, a sampling of the finest regional wines, and music by T.W.O. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on a wonderful array of items during a live auction emceed by The Honorable Brian Kolb. The auction items include: a Canandaigua Lake sunset cruise for four on a 25-ft Catalina yacht complete with cocktails and hors d’ouevres, a one week stay in a spacious fully furnished flat in the picturesque medieval Tuscan town of Monteleone, a 5-course dinner with wine pairings prepared by Wegmans Executive Chef Mark Makovec in his lovely lakeside home, and 5 “hotlaps” around the Watkins Glen Racetrack in a Corvette. Guests will also be able to bid on silent auction items and buy a raffle ticket for a diamond pendant from The Gem Lab (Rochester, NY).
