Who doesn't love Italian food?!?
In November I was asked to come on board at OCHSA and help with events, for a little while, for the 25th Anniversary year, of course I said yes! The school is starting a culinary program Fall of 2012 and we were approached by one of our donors to host a dinner to help fundraise for the new program. Two incredible chefs were flown in from Sardinia Italy to prepare this $1,000 a per person seven course meal! We wanted to make this event truly feel like you were transported to Italy.
Before I go into the look of the event, take a look at the FOOD!
This was the beginning of set-up. This event was held at the Margret Webb Theatre Event Center.
You can't have an Italian event without wine! - The wine bottles with candles were also used as center pieces in the dinning room, they also scattered on highboys in the lobby for a cocktail reception.
Here is a better view of the individual setting and the center piece
The menu card- as you can see the meal was quite filling!

This was a fabulous event filled with wonderful food for an amazing cause! I cannot wait to see what the Culinary program is going to become!
