It’s an opportunity to dine at eight area restaurants all while raising funds for a local organization.
For the third year in a row, Symphony Animal Foundation is hosting its Symphony in Motion Dinner Drive on Saturday. The foundation is a no-kill animal shelter in the community founded by local resident Laraine Russo Harper.
Organizer Cindy Colucci said the fundraiser kicks off at Sanders Family Winery on Kellogg Road at 10:45 a.m.
“The Winery is holding the registration for the event,” she said. “There will be cheese, crackers and fruit for the participants. The ticket price for the day is $35 per person or $60 a couple. From Sanders Family Winery we will make our way around the valley to eight wonderful restaurants who have graciously opted to help us with our dinner drive progressive meal.”
The dinner drive will wind down at the Draft Picks sports bar on Highway 160 for dessert.
Colucci noted that all of the stops in between will be kept under wraps until the event gets underway. “I don’t want to divulge the restaurants because it’s going to be kind of a surprise,” she said. “It’s going to be eight restaurants involved and all of the attendees will get a Symphony in Motion T-shirt and the program that will help guide them around Pahrump.”
Colucci did provide one clue about the dinner drive. At least one destination will be in the town of Crystal.
“We’ll be going out to Kathy’s Short Branch Saloon for their meatballs,” “There will be general times that we will be at these different places so they will be prepared for us. They are going to provide some very delightful food and they are really stepping it up. We are really excited about it this year.”
Colucci also said there will be a limited amount of tickets for sale, which can be purchased in advance.
“We should have between 125 and 175 tickets sold,” she said. “Most of the people by word of mouth, show up on Saturday morning and buy their tickets. This is a major fundraiser for the Symphony Animal Foundation to do the different things that they do to keep the animals safe and sound. We have quite a few tickets sold already and we do have a limited amount of people that we can have just so the restaurants can accommodate us.”
Colucci said she had no problem convincing local businesses to participate in the event.
“It’s been a pleasure to be able to get these businesses to jump on board and reach out for a really good cause and people get the chance to sample some of the restaurants that you haven’t been able to enjoy in the past.”
Advance tickets can be purchased at Draft Picks and Best Western at 1101 S. Highway 160 or Sniffany’s Gifts and Thrifts at 1021 East Gamebird Road.
