Tickets now on sale for STEP’s Progressive Dinner

LOCK HAVEN — STEP will host the Clinton County Progressive Dinner, featuring restaurants and venues in Lock Haven and Mill Hall, on Tuesday, May 23.

This event follows last year’s Pathways to Success Progressive Dinner held in Lycoming County, establishing the evening of fine dining as a regular part of STEP’s fundraising.

The experience will start at STEP’s Clinton County Community Center (CCCC) in Lock Haven, where facility tours and an event welcome will begin at 5 p.m., with bus boarding at 5:30 p.m. Guests will have the option of taking advantage of the transportation provided or driving themselves to the venues to enjoy four courses: hors d’oeuvres, soup and salad, entrees, and desserts.

The evening will see guests enjoy four delicious foods at four locations:

r Hors d’oeuvres (housemade focaccia, roasted tomatoes and olives, cheese boards, and assorted nuts) at the Clinton County Arts Council Station Gallery, catered by Sue Stover.

r Soup and salad (Caesar salad and seasonal minestrone) at The Edge.

r Entrees (a choice of chicken marsala, pasta primavera, or haddock) at Haywoods on the Green.

The evening will end where it began at the CCCC, for a trio of desserts (German chocolate cookie bites, sugar cookie fruit tarts, and lemon cheesecake in phyllo cups), also catered by Sue Stover.

There will be various raffles and 50/50 drawings along the way.

A detailed menu for the evening can be found on STEP’s website at–dinner.

Tickets for the dinner are $50 each, with proceeds providing unrestricted funding for STEP. The purchase price includes all food, food gratuities, and transportation between locations. Cash bars will be available at the restaurants.
