The second annual fundraiser for the Estero High School Culinary Program will be held on Monday, December 18, at 6 p.m., at the Shadow Wood Country Club.
Chef Educator Jeremy Jasper and his students will offer a special treat, conducting a full, one-hour competition team demonstration where they will create their signature three-course meal in front of their guests.
Diners will enjoy a variety of passed hors d’oeuvres during the competition, followed by an elegant dinner.
This unique dining experience will generate funds to send the high school competition team to Orlando to compete in the Florida ProStart state culinary competition, provide product for students to work with in class and purchase the necessary equipment needed to upgrade their kitchen in order to become a premier program.
Last year, one of the students competed and won against 40 of the top culinary programs in the state.
This benefit gala and silent auction has limited seating and tickets are expected to sell out quickly. Priced at $75 per person, you may secure your spot, or make a contribution directly to the school account, by going to the following link: https://squareup.com/store/estero-high-culinary.
One of the goals of this program is to keep students in this area by providing them with the tools necessary to find good jobs.
Shadow Wood Country Club is located at 22801 Oakwilde Blvd., in The Brooks.
