Zonta Club festival of culture underway
Planning is underway for the Zonta Club of Joliet 2nd Annual Festival of Culture Fundraiser to be held on Monday, September 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Jacob Henry Estate Victorian Ballroom in Joliet.
Last year's event drew over 250 guests who sampled local cuisine from around the globe representing Zonta and the diversity of the Joliet area. Fundraising proceeds totaled over $9,000 to benefit social service projects dedicated to empowering women.
"Similar to Zonta International, our area is rich with an ethnic heritage," said Bonnie Horne, Co.Chair of the event. "We are excited to present to the community small tastings, provided by local establishments, of the wonderful culturally diverse foods our area has to offer." The committee is seeking local restaurants that would like to participate in the event by providing food samplings. If interested, call (815) 483-8456.
