Our Founders Dinner was a huge success, with a sold out crowd enjoying very special ambiance and a delicious dinner prepared by a neighborhood chef Stan Mabbott and his team of kitchen wizards. Thank you to Mike Noble at Notable Restaurant for preparing our prime rib on their spit. It was unbelievable!
This meal was sourced from several of our Farmer’s Market vendors and many other kind supporters of the Garden initiative. Donors included Shirley’s Greenhouse, Brenda’s Meat Pies and Rogers Farms.
Our event received generous support from a large and very active team of volunteers as well as generous service donations from Ashley Cook as event coordinator and Justine Maguire as branding artist.
The event featured a silent auction generously supported by a host of local business, many from our market, as well as an exciting live auction to offer a dinner with gardening guru, Donna Baltzer. Supporting businesses included Steeped Teas, Grasby Art Studio, Big Blue Moma, Epicure, Nature and Notes, Eight Gracies African Baskets as well as donations from Druh Farrell and David Swan.
Finally, we were grateful for the supportive words of both Druh Farrell and Mayor Nenshi who both spoke strongly in support of our project.
Thank you to the generous Founders who donated to create a fund that will be a huge support to the installation of Phase I this spring.
