February 16, 2018 to March 24, 2018

Packwood House Museum


Preparations for Packwood House Museum’s Annual Fundraising Dinner are underway. This year’s dinner, held on April 7th at 7 p.m., will take diners on a culinary “Trip Around the World.” Created and served by the students of The School of Business and Hospitality at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, the evening will start with drinks and hors d’oeuvres in the Museum’s Reception Room, including Asian-influenced eggrolls, meatballs, and shrimp wrapped in bacon. After moving to the Dining Room, an appetizer of German wurst, sauerkraut, and spaetzle will begin the meal, followed by vichyssoise for the soup course. Next, a Greek salad with feta cheese, olives, green onion, and a lemon dressing will be served. After an intermezzo of blood orange sorbet, a poultry course of Italian stuffed chicken breast with a marinara sauce over bucatini will be served, followed by an entrée of beef Wellington served with potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, and carrots. While a dessert trio of a fruit tart, baklava, and chocolate truffles is being prepared, guests will be treated to a tour of the first floor of the museum by Jennifer Snyder, administrator of Packwood House Museum. The memorable evening will conclude as the diners retire to the Reception Room to enjoy an aperitif and reminisce about this unforgettable evening.

                Raffle tickets for the fundraiser are on sale in the Museum’s Tour Center at 15 North Water Street, Lewisburg, or from any Museum Member, and cost $5.00 each or six for $25.00. The winning ticket holder, drawn at 4 p.m. on March 24, 2018, in the Tour Center, will share the gourmet meal with seven guests in the Museum’s Dining Room April 7th.

                All proceeds from the ticket sales benefit Packwood House Museum.
