Silent Auction Scholarship Fund Raiser

On Saturday, March 15, 2014, a silent auction was held in conjunction with a food truck festival at Haak Vineyards in Santa Fe, Texas.   The silent auction benefited the Alvin Community College Culinary Arts Scholarship fund.  The fund raiser was the second held this year at Haak Vineyards. 
As often happens this time of year the weather was less than cooperative.  None the less, the event and silent auction were a huge success.
The picture below shows students from four different classes who came out to show their support for the event.  Also pictured is chef Mary Bass who organized the event.

Guys, thanks for your support on a rainy day!

Until next time,
Bon Appetit Ya'll
