Ellicottville Rotary’s annual fundraiser dinner started in 2010 as “Another Day in Paradise”.  It then became “Voodoo Moon” in 2012.  Finally, from 2014-2021, Tuscan Moon was Ellicottville’s favorite summer party.  After 20+ years, it’s time to look back and express many thanks to the volunteers, restaurants, and the community that supported this great event.

Local businesses and restaurant owners/chefs amazed attendees with over-the-top food and merchandise.  Student volunteers helped run food and clean up.  Holiday Valley’s pool complex was a perfect venue blooming over with incredible floral displays.  The management and staff of Holiday Valley went above and beyond to make the event a success.

When asked about the end of Tuscan Moon, club president Doug Anderson said “It was time for a transition.  The local restaurants & businesses are awesome and have given so much of their time and talent over the years, it was time for a break.  I’d like to personally thank the Rotarians, “Friends of Rotary”, and countless volunteers that made this event so successful.”   “Our annual sponsors were the backbone of the event.” said Anderson. “We appreciate their longstanding support, and we look forward to the continued backing of our club’s efforts.”
