Dinner Under The Stars
Third Annual Dinner Under the Stars Hosted in Memory of Mary DeCroce
In 2019, Southington Community Cultural Arts (SoCCA) Founder and Executive Director Mary DeCroce envisioned hosting 100 guests for an outdoor dining experience that would foster a sense of community while taking advantage of the star-lit ambiance of our Town Green.
What transpired after months of planning was a magical September evening that did indeed cultivate community for those lucky enough to garner one of the in-demand tickets. The event featured a farm-to-table dinner that showcased the culinary talents of local chefs and the fresh produce grown right in town.
Now in 2022, SoCCA will once again host Dinner Under the Stars in partnership with the United Way of Southington. To pay tribute to the original organizer of the event, Dinner Under the Stars 2022 is being held in memory of Mary, who passed away in September 2021.
The 2022 Dinner Under the Stars offers 100 participants a fine-dining experience on the Town Green at one long community table spanning 104 feet. The event is scheduled for Sunday, June 26, and will start with a cocktail reception in SoCCA from 5 to 6 p.m. After that, guests will make their way across the street to enjoy a five-course meal provided by local restaurants including Anthony Jacks, Paul Gregory’s, Flair, Smokin’ With Chris, and Craft Kitchen. Karabin Farms will once again provide the entrée.
The fundraiser will benefit both SoCCA and the United Way of Southington. Both organizations seek to better the Southington community by offering programming and services that aid residents’ well-being.
Tickets for Dinner Under the Stars 2022 are $150 and include a cocktail reception, five-course meal, beverages, and a special gift. Sponsorships for the event are also available.
