Seneca Falls, N.Y. – Generations Bank organized their Annual Taste & Tunes event on Friday, August 26, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at People’s Park; the event featured tastings and samplings from local wineries, breweries, and food vendors—it also showcased live music from Steve Maclean Acoustic Vibes. The event raised $12,000, which was donated to the Seneca County House of Concern, Seneca Falls Backpack program, CAP of Waterloo and Trevor’s Gift to support the hungry in our local community.  Thanks to vendors, sponsors, and all of those that attended, Generations almost doubled the amount raised from 2019, after a two-year hiatus of the event!

“Generations was so excited to revive the Taste & Tunes event after a two-year hiatus, and we can’t thank everyone enough who helped raise a record amount for our local charities, as we are committed to helping fight hunger here in Seneca County”, said Menzo Case, Generations Bank President & CEO.
