Wenatchee night at the museum to showcase gourmet food and libations

The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center is hosting its annual Night at the Museum fundraiser this month.

The gathering will feature gourmet food as well as a variety of wines, beers, ciders, cocktails and live music.

The museum’s outreach coordinator, Ashley Sinner, says it will take place at three separate locations on the museum grounds.

“The parking lot will have tents and lights, much like a garden party setting,” Sinner said. “There is live music in each of the various rooms, locations in the museum and in the parking lot.”

The museum’s current star attraction called “Zoo in You” will also be part of the evening.

Zoo in You: The Human Microbiome is an exploration of the internal microorganisms that reside inside the human body. This is a traveling exhibit produced by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Sinner says there will also be a specific attraction to raise money for the nonprofit.

“There’s also a silent auction because it’s a fundraiser for the museum,” Sinner said. “There will be some great packages from local businesses.”

The museum is a 501(c)(3) organization that operates with support from the cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee, as well as private donors.

Night at the Museum takes place on Saturday September 24 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets are $75 for museum members and $100 for non-members.

The ticket price includes 12 tasting tickets and a full deposit token, as well as an assortment of culinary dishes.

Bottles of wine, beer and spirits will be available for purchase and all sales will benefit the museum.

Call 509-888-6240 or visit wenatcheevalleymuseum.org to reserve your tickets.
