Virtual Good Samaritan Dinner Tickets Available Until Thursday
WHEELING – Tickets for Youth Services System Inc.’s annual Good Samaritan Tribute Dinner honoring Chris Figaretti and Vineyard Church are available for purchase until Thursday for next week’s virtual event.
The Sept. 17 event will include dinner by takeout or limited delivery, along with a virtual program.
“Every year, YSS thanks a Good Samaritan from the Ohio Valley, and especially during these difficult times of COVID-19 we wanted to be sure and continue that tradition,” said Terra Crews, YSS special events coordinator. “Knowing how tech-savvy the Vineyard is, it couldn’t be more perfect that they and Pastor Chris are our honorees for our first-ever virtual Good Samaritan Tribute Dinner.”
YSS is compiling a video that will encompass nearly all the usual aspects of the live event, including YSS board member Robert Gaudio as emcee, messages from board chair Robert Dobkin and CEO John Moses, a tribute montage, and words from the honorees. Corey Knollinger is the videographer. The program will premiere at 6:15 p.m. on WLUTV-14 on Comcast, as well as on the YSS Facebook page and YouTube channel. Live pre-dinner music will be performed on Facebook by Gregg Molnar beginning at 5:15 p.m.
A choice of four gourmet meals prepared by Charlie Schlegel are available for pickup or delivery from the West Sports Bar, near Stratford Springs in Wheeling. Delivery to Wheeling and Triadelphia addresses will be provided free by YSS volunteers. Pickup will be at the West Sports Bar between 5-6 p.m.
