Marcopolo-l -- Marco Polo- annual charity dinner by Geneseo Philanthropic Chefs: Town-Gown event


About Marcopolo-l
English (USA)

This email list is for reminders about the annual Marco Polo Dinner. For over 30 years, Dr. Bill Cook and a group of SUNY Geneseo faculty and staff plus alumni and townspeople (Geneseo Philanthropic Chefs) have worked together to raise consciousness about America’s abandoned, abused, and homeless youth and to raise money to contribute to charities that serve these youth.

You can participate in our effort to help vulnerable children by attending the annual Marco Polo Dinner. This is a multi-course meal prepared by some of the College’s faculty and staff and alumni. There are dishes from all of the places Marco Polo traveled–Italy, the Near East, India, China, Southeast Asia. We eat all the way across Eurasia and then return to Italy for desserts! This many course dinner is held annually at 7:00pm at St Mary’s Parish Center on North Street in Geneseo. The date is usually a Saturday in March (some years April or February.) Tickets are $40, and every cent will go to charity that help at-risk youth; the chefs contribute not only the labor but also the food.
