Funds raised for AVTEC culinary scholarships


People from throughout the state came together Friday night to raise money that goes to scholarships for AVTEC’s culinary students.

The evening featured a top-notch dinner prepared by the culinary students, a silent auction and a live auction.

Master of ceremonies, AVTEC Statewide Advisory Board chair and member of the Holland America-Princess Tours team, John Crews, kept the evening lively along with auctioneer Steve Lemme.

The AVTEC culinary students prepared and served the hors d’oeuvres and multi-course dinner of a tomato-bisque soup, Alaska sablefish cake, assorted breads, poached pear sorbet, seared duck breast and strawberry apricot panna cotta. Crush Wine & Bistro Cellar kept the glasses full with wine for each course.

Six $1,000 scholarships were awarded to students attending the culinary course.

Attendees at the dinner included AVTEC Director John Torgerson, Diane Kaplan of the Rasmuson Foundation, Commissioner of the Department of Labor Dianne Blumer, Gov. Parnell’s Chief of Staff Mike Nizich, Rep. Mike Chenault, Sen. Peter Micciche, Willard and Bev Dunham, Margaret Anderson, Bruce and Carole Jaffa.
