— The 8th annual Share the Harvest party to benefit the local ecumenical food pantry will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at St. Patrick's Church Hall, located at 4th and East High Streets in Milford.

The Milford Music Festival, which sponsors the party, was able after last year's party to make a $2,000 cash donation and significant food donation to help neighbors in need.

Favorite dishes from 15 local restaurants will be served, including Fretta's Italian Specialties, The Waterwheel Café, and Jorgenson's at The Dimmick. Live music will be performed by Leo B. Area businesses are donating dozens of prizes to a raffle.

Attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food items. Each is a chance to win: bring 10 items and receive 10 raffle tickets. 50/50 raffle tickets will also be sold, with a cash prize estimated at $250.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door (if still available). The limit is 150 guests.

Tickets are available at The Craft Show (120 East Harford Street). Reserved tables for 8 are $200 and are available by calling Amy at 296-5662.
