2019 Giving Thanks Save the Date!

2019 Giving Thanks Save the Date!

OCO, the community action agency for Oswego County, has announced plans for its annual Giving Thanks fundraiser. The event will be held Friday, November 1 at the Lake Ontario Convention, Event and Conference Center on East First Street in Oswego.

OCO’s Giving Thanks serves as a vehicle to highlight the agency’s many programs and services and as a fundraiser to ensure that OCO will be able to maintain and continue to make these programs and services available.

“Now is the time to save the date and add OCO’s Giving Thanks event to your calendar,” said OCO Development Coordinator Bridget Dolbear.   

In keeping with its theme of giving thanks the event will feature an assortment of autumn inspired food and refreshments. Food stations throughout the venue will offer attendees the opportunity to enjoy harvest season delicacies from some of Oswego County’s finest restaurants and eateries; each paired with wine and beer samples especially chosen to complement the foods featured at each station. There will also be a number of drawings and live entertainment.

Established more than 53 years ago, OCO offers more than 50 different human services programs that serve over 16,000 people annually. These programs strive to eliminate the impact of poverty and increase the quality of life in Oswego County. That, combined with a staff of more than 500 employees, makes OCO one of the most vital organizations in Oswego County.
