As one of the 6 trustees for the Mignon Sherwood Delano Foundation, I get to give away $$$ and eat well. What's not to love about that combo, eh?
We receive 35-45 grant applications from area non-profits every year and award anywhere from $165,000 to $200,000-ish. The warm fuzzy we all get from giving back to our community is amazing. And eating well isn't bad either. hehe
Again this year our yummy meal was served at the Delano Inn by Loriscupcakesnmore.com. Don't let the "light-weight" name fool ya. Lori cranks out way more than cupcakes.
First - let me set the scene.
|Appetizers and beverages were served in this room.|
|A little ho-ho-ho to make the season bright.|
|Plenty o' seating for the 10 of us in the dining room.|
|This is the only bedroom on the main floor of the inn and it served as our coat room. Fancy, eh?|
|There were also little meatballs that were TDF but in my frenzy I forgot to take a picture of them.|
|Nice touch - cute.|
|We've all had Lori's salad before and are big fans.|
|This is what I live for. OMG, what that woman does with desserts is award-winning.|
|That's Lori on the left and, I'm sorry, but I either didn't get her trustee assistant's name or I did and forgot it.|
