4-H is a community of 350 youth ages 5-19 who participate in year-round life-skills and animal science programs led by 140 dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers. An additional 1,100 youth participate in short term programming like Conservation Field Days, Science Explorers, and Garden Club. This year funds from The Green Tie Affair will directly support programming in 2017. Any funds raised beyond that need will be placed in the 4-H Endowment fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation which supports 4-H and positive youth development in Chautauqua County forever.

The Have-a-Heart for 4-H Green Tie Affair will take place on Sunday, February 26, 2017 at the Chautauqua Suites in Mayville. Doors open at 3:00pm with a large basket raffle. The raffle closes at 5:00pm when dinner is served. The live pie will begin immediately following dinner.
