Museum to host What Women Want

| March 16, 2015

COSHOCTON – What do women want? First on the list is to get together with friends, and a close second, to feast on exquisite cuisine over wine. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum will be offering this and more at What Women Want on April 11. What Women Want—A Night out Just for Women—features a luxurious five-course dinner and a What Women Want auction of unique packages and exclusive experiences.

The affair begins at 5:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres, wine, and live music by Joe Hardesty. Check in, examine the auction packages, and bid in the silent auction. A sit-down dinner served by black-tie waiters begins around 6 p.m. Chef Michael Cichon, known to create enticing entrees that thrill the pallet, is designing and preparing this fete.

The What Women Want Auction includes cool packages, unique dinners, outing bundles and parties. Past favorites that will be offered again include a gourmet dinner for eight at the museum prepared by Chef Cichon, an airplane ride for three over Coshocton County, and The Time Traveler, a barbequed rib supper for ten at the Tree Top Lodge, built in the early 1920s by Charles Dennis, owner of the Morgan Run Coal and Mine Company. A new package this year is “Some Enchanted Evening.” Your party of six will begin their evening with a tour of the Speckman House, a beautifully crafted house—butler’s pantry, leaded glass windows, sleeping porches off second-story bedrooms—built in the 1930s (located on Cambridge Ave.), and followed by an elegant dinner prepared by Chef Bob McKenna. Another new package offers a high tea—Downton Abbey style—at Clary Gardens. Additional descriptions of packages will be updated on JHM’s Facebook page as the event drawers closer.

What Women Want is a fundraising event organized by The Friends of the Museum. All proceeds will be used to support the museum’s educational programs. Tickets are $45. Friends members’ price is $40. Admission covers hors d’oeuvres, dinner and two complimentary wine tickets. A cash wine bar will also be available. If you are interested in sponsoring a full table or an auction item, contact the museum. Tickets may be purchased at the museum or by calling the museum at 622-8710. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday from noon – 5 p.m. Ticket sales end on April 4.
