In case you were wondering about all those well-attired people in Hotchkiss last Saturday evening, they were attending the third annual Dress Your Best fund-raiser at the Creamery Arts Center.
All in all it was a great social event.
Sixty-two dined on the prime rib dinner catered by Larry Jakubiak's North Fork Restaurant. He made a special original blueberry dessert as the finishing touch for the meal. Members of the Hotchkiss FFA served as wait staff.
Providing musical entertainment throughout the evening were David and Tamera Hauze.
John Willett served as master of ceremonies and as the auctioneer. Throughout the evening special donated items were auctioned off. Included in that were decorated boots by Creamery artists and young artists in the afterschool program. Other items were photography and printing classes by Jodeen Stephenson, a hot stone massage and more gifts.
The event raised about $1,300 for the Creamery Art Center's operating fund.
"That's the most important part — that everyone enjoyed themselves," said Cyndi Boerner of the Creamery. "This was the first auction we had that people really got involved and had a good time with it. We were really, really pleased with that."blog comments powered by Disqus
