Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce to Host Community Party to Raise Funds for Winter Lights
Rhinebeck, New York….The Board of Directors of the Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce have announced details of this year’s Cocktails at Sunset event, an annual tradition designed to raise funds for the winter lights in the village of Rhinebeck, to be presented by Rhinebeck Bank, the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, and the Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce.
Says Colleen Cruikshank, executive director of the Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce, “this event grows in popularity every year, and we are enormously grateful to our entire community for coming out to help us raise funds for our beautiful winter lights, which warm the streets of our Rhinebeck village and attract countless tourists to our community. We are excited to be in a new location this year at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds’ beautiful Horticulture Pavilion. The format will also be new as we will have wonderful food and beverage tastings provided by many local restaurants.”
“We hope that our entire community will come out for this party,” says Kristin Hutchins, member of the Rhinebeck Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. “This has the potential to be one of the biggest events of the year, and when we all walk through our village during the cold winter months surrounded by our charming white lights, there is no doubt that we will feel great pride in the community spirit of generosity that makes those lights possible. We encourage everyone to come out and be a part of it – year after year, it is just a wonderful time for all who participate.”
