  • SouthSide Film Institute Fundraiser


    If you attended last year’s event, you know how amazing it was. It was so good we had requests to buy tickets for this year’s event in advance! Last year we raised $3,000 for the Institute, more than we have ever raised in one event. This year we intend to take it up another notch. We have added some new chefs. Let’s show everyone our Southside Pride. As you tweet or instagram about the event please use the following hashtags: #positively3rd and #positivelySS. Short for “positively 3rd Street” and “positively Southside.” We hope that these catch fire and are used anytime anyone finds themselves  on Third St and in the Southside.

    This is going to be an great night. Five amazing local chef’s will each prepare a course, paired with a wine for your enjoyment and to benefit the Southside Film Festival. The evening will start out with five hors d’oeuvres [prepared by each chef] at 6 pm with a cash bar. Dinner will start at 7.

    The five chefs are:
    Michael Joyce – Molinari’s
    Lee Chizmar – Bolete
    Michael Adams – Hotel Bethlehem
    Shawn Doyle – Savory Grille
    Alan Pitotti – Dolce Patisserie
    Bill Binczak – South Italy Imports will be providing all the wines for the event.

    For the movies…… well you will just have to wait until the festival.

    If your mouth is not watering, it should be. Tickets are limited. Cost is $125 pp including tax and gratuity. Sorry, but Molinari's cannot accommodate special dietary requests. Come out to support a great organization and eat some great food. Half of the ticket price is considered a charitable donation to the Institute.

    Visit the Molinari's Store to buy tickets.
