1950s Theme Dinner Fundraiser is Saturday

November 10, 2009

HANCOCK, MI - A recently-formed Finlandia University student club, 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, 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 support annual membership fees in the national Women's Caucus for Art and help the young women organize a traveling art exhibit.

At the dinner, members of the Caucus will wear aprons that they have designed and created in order to encourage entries for "The Apron Show," a traveling exhibit will premier at Finlandia's Reflection Gallery, then travel to Saint Louis and Denver. The call for entries 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.

The Finlandia Hall Café is in the university's residence hall on Summit Street, Hancock.
