Young Women’s Caucus to Host 1950s Theme Dinner
HANCOCK, MI – The recently-formed Finlandia University chapter of the Young Women’s Caucus will host a 1950s theme dinner Saturday, November 14, starting at 6:00 p.m., at the Finandia Hall Café, in the university’s residence hall on Summit Street, Hancock.
The menu for the buffet-style 1950s housewife-themed dinner is inspired by food from that era. The community is encouraged to participate by baking a pie for a pie contest that evening, or by sporting 1950s attire.
The Young Women’s Caucus is dedicated to providing opportunities for emerging artists and designers. The theme dinner fundraiser will help the young women organize “The Apron Show,” a traveling art exhibit, and support annual membership fees in the national Women’s Caucus for Art.
At the dinner, the members of the Caucus will wear aprons that they have designed and created in order to encourage additional entries for The Apron Show, a traveling exhibit that will start at Finlandia’s Reflection Gallery then travel to Saint Louis and Denver. The call for entry for “The Apron Show” is open to all women ages 12 to 39. All aprons must fit in an 11-½” x 14-½” envelope.
“The Young Women’s Caucus hopes to have your support for our first fundraiser,” says Jaimianne Amicucci, a senior art and design student from New York and an officer of the caucus. “Come to enjoy the meal and learn more about this profound new organization.”
Tickets are $15 at the door, and $10 for students and those who contribute a homemade pie.For more information about the dinner, The Apron Show, or the Young Women’s Caucus, visit http://youngwc.blogspot.com, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 906-487-7375.
