‘Confluence’ to benefit Women’s Hall of Fame project

Women producers and artists of the Finger Lakes — wine and cider makers, chefs, farmers, glassmakers, carpenters and musicians — will gather this week to host “Confluence,” a benefit event for the rehabilitation of the Seneca Knitting Mill, the future home of the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

The fundraising event will feature dinner and drinks, as well as an auction, candlelight tour of the Mill and after-party, on Thursday, July 13.

Organized by Betty Bayer, professor of women’s cathstudies and co-president of the board of directors of National Women’s Hall of Fame, and Jessica Giles, who works at the Hall and has been a trailblazer in the Finger Lakes food and wine industry for nearly 20 years. Area female supporters include women artists, chefs and winemakers (including Julia Hoyle, winemaker at Hosmer Winery).
