Dinner benefits Land Trust project

Maxie’s Supper Club is hosting a Chicken-Fried Fundraiser to support the Finger Lakes Land Trust’s Six-Mile Creek Protection Project.
 
Eat dinner at Maxie’s on Tuesday, April 5, from 5 to 11 p.m., and for every Southern-Fried Chicken and BBQ Organic Tofu dinner sold, Maxie’s will donate $5 to the Finger Lakes Lake Trust.
 
Wash it down with a pint of local Bacchus Ale and for each pint sold, Maxie’s will donate an additional $1. Guests will enjoy free live music from 6 to 10 p.m. by Pete Panek and The Blue Cats in the bar room.
 
The Six-Mile Creek Project provides a unique opportunity to protect Ithaca’s drinking water supply, conserve county-designated natural areas, and secure a unique destination for outdoor recreation.  The Land Trust has negotiated an agreement to purchase 125 acres on Midline Road in the town of Dryden which features more than 900 feet of frontage on Six Mile Creek in what is arguably the most pristine stretch of the entire watercourse.
 
The Land Trust has launched a $300,000 fundraising campaign to cover the purchase price, associated transaction costs, and a contribution to the organization’s Stewardship Fund to provide long term management and monitoring.
