This year the Club worked with The Salvation Armyâ€™s Culinary Training Program and enlisted the assistance of two prominent chefs in town to act as mentors. Chef Agostino Gabriele from Vincenzoâ€™s and Chef Geoffrey Heyde from the Village Anchor offered guidance to the training chefs.
In addition to the delicious food tastings, hors dâ€™oeuvres and drinks there were eight up-scale vendors selling services and goods during the evening. They were Architype Gallery with fine handcrafted handbags, Cellar Door Chocolates (absolutely to die for!), Jenkins Eliason Interiors, Daffodils Fine Stationary and Gifts, Yudofsky Furriers, Summer Eliason Jewelry, Moss Hill Bath & Body Collection, Massage Envy Spa and Ming Wang, a fashionable dress designer from NYC.
Toward the end of the evening there was an auction of delightful vacation packages, University of Kentucky basketball tickets and other treasures.
Debbie Marr and Janice Mueller were the co-chairs of the successful event, and are they a breath of fresh air.
Proceeds from the Extravaganza will benefit the Heuser Hearing & Language Academy (75 percent) and the Salvation Army Culinary Training Program (25 percent). â€œAnd a good time was had by all.â€
BirthdayJack Roby celebrated an unmentionable birthday last Friday evening. Corky Sachs gave a dinner party in his honor. He called from a vacation in France and gave her the date, the guest list and the menu. (One thing about Jack, you never are left guessing, which is probably why he is so loved.)
Edie and Dallas Tidwell, Barbara Moore, Naomi Oliphant and Jeff Hobart, Brenda Kee and Wayne Brown, and a publicity-shy guest gathered to wish him well.
Corkyâ€™s favorite chef and friend, Kathy Cary of Lillyâ€™s, did the culinary honors including beef daube, divine potato smash, carrot sauteâ€™, cress salad and her signature caramel cake. Wow! Dinner was delicious as expected. â€œAnd a good time was had by all.â€
