Fundraiser will support the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center

'Young at Heart' to feature auction, music, food and cocktails at The Foundry


Any age is welcome at the "Young at Heart" fundraiser for the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center on May 16 at 5:30 p.m.

Frank Sinatra's golden hit from 1953 is just the right theme for this premiere event that will benefit so many of Lake Oswego's senior citizens.

"We have fantastic community support from businesses and donors," said Ann Adrian, ACC manager.

The setting for the ACC fundraiser is entirely appropriate. The Foundry, with its lovely location on the Willamette River, will be transformed into a swanky 1960s-style nightclub. Featured will be a sit-down dinner with multiple courses, auction items and live music in the tradition of Frank Sinatra.

As a side attraction there will be a cocktail competition with local bartenders.

Five of Lake Oswego's finest restaurants are teaming up to provide a feast. They include Gourmet Productions, Five Spice, Jefe and Scratch, plus the chef's staff from Mary's Woods.

Producing this event will be Lake Oswego's own Cindy Thompson, who produced the remarkable Lake Oswego Centennial Celebration in 2010.

ACC supporters say this elegant event will bring together young and old alike for an evening of delicious food, great music and good friends, all with the purpose of raising money for the ACC, a facility that has been an indispensable resource for citizens age 50 and older, offering recreation, education and social service programs.

Notable sponsors include Mary's Woods, the presenting sponsor, and Food Services of America and Eastside Distilling, both in-kind sponsors.

Tickets cost $100, and Adrian said half of the ticket price can be used as a tax deduction. Tickets can be purchased now at www.ci.oswego.or.us/acc or at the ACC.
