Cookie Table and Cocktails
February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Cookies, cocktails, food, and fun are back! The can’t miss event of the season, the eleventh annual Cookie Table and Cocktails, hosted by the Mahoning Valley Historical Society, will be held on Saturday, February 25 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at Assumption Social Center at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Cookie Table and Cocktails is the signature fundraising event for MVHS. The catered event is styled to recreate a traditional Youngstown wedding reception and features a cookie baking competition for both amateurs and professionals, judged by a select panel of community figures. Stan Boney, longtime local TV journalist, will be the event emcee once again this year.
There will be a traditional Youngstown-style buffet dinner, silent auction, basket auction, 50/50 drawing, music and dancing with legendary Del Sinchak Band, and THOUSANDS OF COOKIES at the amazing cookie table! A cash bar will be available with signature cocktails, including the featured cocktail, Pretty Ricky, created by Billy Danielson of Cedar’s West End. The tequila-based drink was voted the best of four served at MVHS’s Olive with a Twist cocktail party event on January 20.
Tickets for the event are $70 per person or $640 for a reserved table of eight, which includes preferred placement table location and a table sign. Tickets are available online at www.mahoninghistory.org/cookie-table.
