Join in on the fun at Columbia Crossing for a cocktail party with drinks, appetizers, and live music between 4 pm and 8 pm.We invite all the friends of the river to Eat, Drink & Give! Join us to enjoy live music from the Dreadnought Brigade Duo who will be serving up ‘feel good’ tunes of blues, rock, and folk. Scrumptious appetizers, beer from Moo-Duck Brewery and Columbia Kettleworks, wine, and B(ike)YO wine slushies will make it a true cocktail hour. Giving stations throughout the party will help us build funds for the river! Each donation given online on Friday, November 16th will be matched dollar-for-dollar from a pool of $8,000, courtesy of the Speedwell Foundation and several generous donors.

For donations of $25 or more, Isaac’s Deli & Restaurant has kindly provided free dessert vouchers. For donations of $50 or more, you can take home a Susquehanna Heritage etched wine glass created by Susquehanna Glass.
