FOOD FEST Silent Auction Continues

The 3rd annual Malta Food Fest was recently hosted by the Saratoga County Chamber at TEC-SMART in Malta. There was an amazing response for the Malta Food Fest with close to 200 dinners being sold before the event. Thank you to all the sponsors, supporters, the Saratoga County Chamber and participating restaurants.

As in previous years, proceeds from the event benefit the school district’s Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund and the many amazing programs it financially supports. A silent auction of gift baskets, donated items and gift certificates raises additional funds for the district and is being held online this year. 

Anyone wishing to still support the Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund can visit the online auction. The online auction is at https://www.32auctions.com/MFF2021.  Be sure to check the items being raffled and get your bid in before the auction closes at 12:00pm on Sunday, December 12, 2021. For additional information, please email Adrienne Snow or Kelly Delaney-Elliott or call at (518) 884-7195 ext. 1369.
