On May 3, del Lago Resort & Casino hosted the United Way of Seneca County’s annual Taste of Spring event. The 80’s themed fundraiser celebrated wine, cider, craft beer, tea, coffee and foods of the Finger Lakes. All proceeds from the event supported United Way of Seneca County’s community work.
More than 600 people attended this year’s event, doubling last year’s attendance — easily becoming one of the best attended Taste of Spring events ever. More than $17,000 was raised which will support United Way’s partner agencies and Seneca County community initiatives. All money raised stays in Seneca County and is invested in numerous health and human service programs to best serve the needs of the community. An extensive network of over 250 local volunteers keep administrative costs low and enable almost 90 cents of every dollar to help people in need.
“Bringing the Taste of Spring event to del Lago Resort & Casino for our 30th anniversary this year was a fantastic opportunity,” said Rhonda Jasper, Executive Director of United Way of Seneca County. “It is a beautiful space with such a dedicated and professional team — the perfect venue for an event featuring so much of what the Finger Lakes has to offer. We hope that del Lago Resort & Casino will be the new home for our annual Taste of Spring event moving forward and the start of a great partnership as del Lago and the United Way work together to create a lasting impact for all working and living in Seneca County.”
