The Williamsport Crosscutters have teamed up with Advancing Communities by Educating and Serving (A.C.E.S.) North America in announcing the 2nd Annual Dominican Plate – An Evening of Dominican Dining and Entertainment with the Cutters.
The event will be held on Tuesday, August 5 in the Grand Ballroom of the Genetti Hotel, 200 W. Fourth St., Williamsport. Doors open at 5:30pm with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar followed by a Dominican-style dinner served at 6:30pm.
Proceeds from the event will benefit A.C.E.S. North America, an organization working to create sustainable development projects in the Dominican Republic. The charity, founded in Williamsport in 2005, uses all-volunteer personnel for its operations.
A.C.E.S. Founder Linell Stabler stated, “Teaming up with the Crosscutters for this Dominican fundraiser is a fun match for our mission of helping people in the Dominican Republic.”
In addition, the night will feature live musical entertainment, Chinese and live auctions of sports memorabilia and other items plus a balloon bust wine raffle. Last year’s event raised almost $3,000 for the charity
“This event was such a success last year and it was a fun night for our players as well. This is a tremendous opportunity to help out a worthy charity that does outstanding work in an area of the world many of our players call home,” said Gabe Sinicropi the team’s Vice-President of Marketing and Public Relations.
The Genetti has again agreed to donate kitchen services and the Grand Ballroom for this charity event.
