ehs culinary 2019Over $35,000 was raised during the fourth annual fundraiser for the Estero High School at the Shadow Wood Country Club on Monday, December 16, 2019. These monies will be used to enhance the culinary and arts programs at the school in the coming year.

The event began with a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres being passed throughout the crowd.

On the sun-draped patio, 170 guests watched culinary students demonstrate their cooking skills and viewed various articles of student artwork, all while being entertained by chamber music performed by the students.

Dinner featured filet mignon with a truffle mushroom demi-glace accompanied by a signature salad and a trio dessert.

A Live Auction was conducted by Auctioneer Rick Gallo and NBC-2’s morning anchor Rachel Pierce; there was also a Silent Auction.
