Gourmet Getaway

This event was last held in March, 2019 and is our major fundraiser for our scholarship program. Local restaurants provide samples of their specialties to enjoy with wine, beer, and spirits from area purveyors. Raffle and auction item donations provide a plethora of goodies to be awarded to winners. Funds raised from this event, which exceeded $30,000 last year, go to local women who would like to further their education but do not have the financial resources to do so. This committee is divided into the following subcommittees: Restaurants, Facilities/Entertainment, Marketing/PR/Design, Raffles and Auction, and Corporate Engagement.
