SUMMER SIZZLER!!

This is just a reminder friends and neighbors!!!

It’s that time of year to mark those calendars and prepare yourself for a night of fun, connection, and some “fund-collection” as we ramp up our summer fundraising event. This event has been called a variety of things including, “wine-tasting” and “wine event” but this year, we want to call this our “Summer Sizzler”.

To continue to keep things changing, The Great Gatsby is our inspiration as we will open our roaring 20’s speakeasy at our 633 Linwood Avenue address. This will be your only destination for the evening!! Your prohibition-age food and beverage will be all-inclusive once you have entered the speakeasy! $30.00 for OOCA members and $35.00 for Non-OOCA members will be a low price to pay for your evening of cocktails, food, entertainment and fun!!

Bring out your inner “Flapper” and yes, you might have guessed, the evening must include the Charleston!!

Date: Saturday, August 20, 2016
Time: 6:00 p.m. – Midnight
Address: 633 Linwood Avenue, Columbus, OH 43205
Price: $30.00 OOCA members / $35.00 non-OOCA members

Remember proceeds from the evening event help to support future events including our newly returned Boulevard Blast!!!

6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. – Hors d’ouvres and classic cocktails at the Gatsby Mansion…

7:00 p.m. – the open food and beverage buffet will be available for the evening.

8:00 p.m. – Dancing commences!!

Various entertainment elements will occur throughout the evening!!
