Women's night is museum fundraiser

Published: March 25, 2017 5:00 AM

What do women want? First on the list is to get together with friends, and a close second, to feast on exquisite cuisine over wine. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum will be offering this and more at What Women Want on April 22. What Women Want -- A Night out Just for Women -- features a luxurious five-course dinner and a What Women Want auction of unique packages and exclusive experiences.

The affair begins at 5:30 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres, wine and live music. Check in, examine the auction packages and bid in the silent auction. A sit-down dinner served by black-tie waiters begins around 6 p.m. Chef Michael Cichon is known to create enticing entrees that thrill the palate, and this year will be no different.

The What Women Want Auction includes cool packages, unique dinners, outing bundles and parties. Past favorites that will be offered again include a gourmet dinner for eight at the museum prepared by Chef Cichon, a weekend stay at Kelleys Island, a gourmet dinner for six prepared by Chef Bob McKenna at the Speckman House, and a high tea -- Downton Abbey style -- at Clary Gardens. One of the most popular packages is The Time Traveler, a barbecued rib supper for 10 at the Tree Top Lodge, built in the early 1920s by Charles Dennis, owner of the Morgan Run Coal and Mine Company. Auction items will be listed on the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum as the time draws closer.

What Women Want is a fundraising event organized by The Friends of the Museum. All proceeds will be used to support the museum's educational programs. Tickets are $45. Admission covers hors d'oeuvres, dinner and a complimentary wine ticket. (Friends members will receive an additional wine ticket.) A cash wine bar also will be available. If you are interested in sponsoring a full table or an auction item, contact the Museum. Tickets may be purchased at the museum or by calling the museum at 740-622-8710. Ticket sales end April 16.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is in Roscoe Village at 300 N. Whitewoman St., Coshocton. For more information, contact the museum at 740-622-8710 or by email, jhmuseum@jhmuseum.org.
