Flavors of St. John Set for Friday

Wine and dine for a good cause at this Friday’s annual Flavors of St. John held by the Rotary Club of St. John. The event begins with cocktails at 6 p.m. at the Westin Resort and Villas ballroom.

Dinner follows, with dancing to live music starting at 9 p.m. A silent auction that includes art, items from St. John merchants and boat trips, as well as other offerings, will run throughout the night.

“It’s going to be a great, wonderful party before the season starts in earnest, and they’ll get to see all the people they haven’t seen all summer,” Rotary treasurer B.J. Harris said, ticking off the reasons why people should come.

The event raises money for Rotary’s scholarship fund and its back-to-school distribution of supplies. It’s is the club’s major fundraiser.

Because the event kicks off Halloween weekend, Harris said those attending should wear costumes if they’re so inclined. Otherwise, they should wear “island fancy” attire.

Tickets are still available. They run $95 in advance and are available at Connections, Chelsea Drugs, St. John Properties, or from any Rotary member. Tickets at the door are $100. Harris said that anyone with a Health Department food handler’s card pays $75. She said they get in for a reduced price because restaurants and wine merchants make the event possible through their donations.

According to Harris, more than 20 local restaurants will set up tables to showcase their menus. They’ll fill small plates for those attending the event.

“It’s a good opportunity to see what restaurant they like best,” Harris said, adding that several of the island’s new restaurants will have tables at Flavors.
