Get your Gatsby on at the 46th annual Hors d’oeuvre Festival
The wonderful ladies of Soroptimist International of Merced are preparing for the 46th annual Hors d’oeuvre Festival on May 19.
This is one of the most popular local fundraisers of the year, and a sure draw for the who’s who of Merced.
This year’s theme is the “Roaring 20s,” and guests are encouraged to “get their Gatsby on.”
The outdoor extravaganza will be held at a beautiful private residence from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Expect Soroptimist members to be dressed to the nines, with teams set up at each Hors d’oeuvre booths. Booth themes include names such as “Stardust,” “Makin’ Whoopee!” and “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” The delicacies will feature “Fig and gorgonzola on bruschetta,” “Chocolate Whoopee pie,” “Pineapple sausage,” “Shrimp Cocktail,” “Pimento Cheese Tea Sandwiches,” and “Spinach wraps,” just to name a few.
Tickets are $45. Call Justi at (209) 345-9743.
A Park & Ride shuttle will be available from the Yosemite Church front lot on 2230 E. Yosemite Avenue.
All proceeds go to Soroptimist projects that serve residents in the local community.
