Not too late to attend ‘Oz’ trivia-dinner benefit
Tickets for Monday’s Hope Elephants benefit at Trackside Station went fast, but there are 10 left for seating at the bar.
The evening, which begins 6 p.m., will feature a dinner followed by an “All Things Oz” trivia competition; Wizard of Oz –themed drinks; a cupcake bar, courtesy of Laugh Loud Smile Big of Rockport—featuring cupcakes in honor of Toto’s 80th birthday—and a silent auction.
The event coincides with the 75th anniversary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's classic motion picture "The Wizard of Oz," and the Farnsworth Art Museum's exhibition "The Wonderful World of Oz,” selections from the Willard Carroll/Tom Wilhite Collection," which opened Oct. 12 in the museum's Crosman Gallery.(Attendees are encouraged to dress in character.)
Tickets are $35 and include dinner and a donation to Hope Elephants. Guests will have a choice of pumpkin seed-crusted haddock filet with a butternut squash and sweet potato puree with roasted parsnips, baby carrots and picked cranberries, or Cornish hen with lemon roasted fingerling potatoes and ginger butter with spaghetti squash and leeks. There will also be a vegetarian option. Trackside Station also will donate $1 from every Wizard of Oz-themed drink purchased.
