Earlville native Sherry Haluska had a pretty good weekend. She had returned to her old stomping ground from her current home in Schenectady on the weekend of August 14th to attend her fiftieth high school reunion, to take in the summer quilt show at the Earlville Opera House, and to attend the performance of Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen in the restored upstairs theater on Friday night. While there, she entered our annual raffle. And she pulled first prize! “I enjoyed my first visit to the opera house,” notes Haluska. “Winning the raffle is definitely the icing on the cake!”
Haluska, a retired librarian, had her choice among the three possible raffle prizes available, and she chose the three-pack of restaurant gift certificates: $100 each to the Tailor & the Cook in Utica, Michael’s in Waterville, and The Horned Dorset in Leonardsville. “It will be lovely to share meals with friends in the area,” offers Haluska.
The second place raffle prize went to EOH Board Member Bruce Ward, who graciously deferred to the third place winner, Kristin Mosher of Syracuse. Deciding between the Bose Soundlink Mini speaker and tickets for the full 2016 EOH Season, Mosher chose the “awesome” speaker. “We will definitely continue supporting the Earlville Opera House,” said Mosher. “Thanks for all your work providing such amazing art, culture, and entertainment.”
The Earlville Opera House is deeply grateful to everyone who helped support our youth programming by purchasing a raffle ticket this season, and to the restaurants that generously donated prizes.
