Celebrate Smith!

Thursday, September 21 at 6:00 PM
Geneva on the Lake

The Smith Center for the Arts will honor Mathew D.  Horn, Geneva City Manager, at its annual “Celebrate Smith!” dinner on Thursday, September 21, at Geneva on the Lake.

City Manager since July 2008, Horn has been the driving force behind initiatives that have revitalized Geneva’s downtown and neighborhoods. Among the many federal and state grants acquired for the City under his tenure, Horn is largely responsible for the recently announced $15 million in state funding through the highly competitive Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI).  He has been included on the prestigious Chris Traeger List for several years in recognition of his influence in and outside his community through professional associations, mentoring and writing.

Horn has been a great supporter of the Smith Center for the Arts in many ways, most recently lending critical assistance on several successful grant applications. The Smith secured over $500,000 through Main Street, Empire State Development and DRI funding for important building upgrades to the Smith Opera House.

The event starts with a reception at 6 p.m. at Geneva on the Lake, 1001 Lochland Road, Geneva. Dinner follows at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the dinner are $100 each or $1,000 for a table of eight, and can be purchased at the Smith Center for the Arts Box Office, 82 Seneca Street, Geneva during box office hours, which are 10 m to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, or by calling 315-781-5483 during box office hours.  All proceeds benefit the Smith Center for the Arts.
