Whatever the weather, the Aquarium of Niagara will host its annual fundraiser, "SEAsonings - The Original Taste of Niagara," from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 3, at the Whirlpool Street facility.
Even if "the weather outside is frightful," it's sure to be delightful inside, as Aquarium of Niagara guests taste fine wines and sample foods from area restaurants, wineries and other vendors.
This mouth-watering benefit for the Aquarium of Niagara and its living collection also will feature music by Premier Sound with DJ Pat Proctor, sponsored by Turner Construction, and the raffling of several great donated prizes - everything from jewelry to art.
Food samplings will be provided by The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Hard Rock Café, Lebro's Restaurant, Niagara County Community College Culinary Arts Program, Red Coach Inn, Specialty Pies by Shirlene, Just Say Cheesecake, Delaware North Parks Services, The Conference Center Niagara Falls, Dick & Jenny's Bake & Brew, Richard's on Main, Trio's Restaurant, Wine on Third, The Village Bake Shoppe and Suzanne's Fine Dining.
Participating wineries include Arrowhead Spring Vineyards, Heron Hill Winery, Willow Creek and Wagner Vineyards. Certo Brothers Distributing, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. and Coffee Pause will provide other beverages.
George Edwards Jewelers, Art Effects Glass, Welcome Magazine and others have donated raffle prizes. Marli's Florist will do floral arrangements for the event.
