It’s time to enjoy an evening on the riviera

Frederick, Maryland – Finally, after months of planning it’s time to relax and enjoy the 13th annual An Evening on the Riviera, the area’s premier charity food and wine extravaganza that showcases the region’s finest restaurants, caterers, wine cellars, and entertainment. The black-tie optional event is only two short weeks away on October 9, 2009 from 7 p.m. to midnight at the E-ventplex at the Frederick Fairgrounds, Null Building, 797 East Patrick Street, Frederick, Maryland. This year’s beneficiaries are The Boys & Girls Club of Frederick County and The Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County.

The delectable event promises to be better than ever. Wines are being selected and over 14 restaurants and caterers have committed to feature an array of sumptuous dishes and mouth watering treats to guests. A distinguished panel of food experts will present awards for food presentation and quality. Several microbreweries will also share their unique micro beers. Adding to the glitz and fun of the night is the tabletop competition, in which local designers and special event professionals exhibit their creativity and decorate the sponsors’ tables. Musical entertainment will be provided by ‘Round Midnight. An Evening on the Riviera also hosts the best silent auction in the area, which features art, jewelry, travel, sports, spa retreats, and more!

The organizing committee for An Evening on the Riviera is proud that 100% of the proceeds raised throughout the event’s 13 year history have benefitted a variety of Frederick County non-profit organizations. This is only possible through the generosity of our event sponsors. This year’s major sponsors include Comcast, Frederick Magazine, and Geico.

Tickets for this year’s event are $75 per person for a limited time. Food and alcohol are included with admission ticket; however, guests must be 21 years of age and older to consume alcohol. Tickets are available online at or at the The Grapevine, Ye Olde Spirit Shoppe, New York New York Hair Salon and Day Spa, and Frederick Wine House. Tickets can also be ordered by calling The Boys and Girls Club of Frederick County at 301-600-1875.

The organizers and sponsors of this great event urge guests to please drink responsibly.
