Sinatra-styled fundraiser to benefit LOACC

by: SUBMITTED ART - Young at Heart is a benefit for the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.The Foundry on the Willamette River will be transformed into a swanky 1960s dinner club a la Frank Sinatra for “Young At Heart,” a benefit gala for the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.

The event features dinner, auction and live music by the Johnny Martin Band, all delivered in Sinatra’s sophisticated fashion. The event will be held May 16 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.

This event is a joint effort by the city of Lake Oswego and the Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Lake Oswego program and features a four-course meal prepared by local chefs, a cocktail-making competition between local bartenders, auction items and live music. Chefs preparing the meal include those from Five Spice, Jefe, Scratch and Gourmet Productions and desserts furnished by the chefs at Mary’s Woods.

“This is really a unique experience with chefs, bartenders and food and wine related donations,” said Kelly Calabria, a member of Leadership Lake Oswego. “Nicolette’s Table has generously donated a private dinner party for 30 people, including wine to the Young at Heart LOACC benefit, valued at more than $1,500. The Oilery donated a private tasting party for 10 people, valued at $150, World Class Wines is donating a wine tasting for 10 to 12 people, valued at $250. Crave Bake Shop has donated cupcakes for a year.”

Stepping up to compete in the cocktail competition are Caleb Helsey of Manzana Rotisserie and Grill, Mickelle Hart from Gemini Pub, Candace Bergam from Clarke’s Restaurant and Josh Suchan from Jefe Mexican Restaurant.

They will each create an original cocktail, keeping in mind the Frank Sinatra theme that will be judged by a panel of judges.

The contestants will also create a second cocktail using a mystery spirit that will be judged by attendees to determine the People’s Choice award winner.

Tickets are $100 each and can be purchased at the LOACC online at ci.oswgo.or.us/acc.
