All 39 guests had a fabulous time Thursday night at our Rotary Nana’s Foundation Fundraiser Wine Dinner. First and foremost, the food and wine were superb as was the fellowship.
During the event, Chef and Nana’s owner Scott Howell was awarded a Paul Harris Fellow for his contribution to Rotary’s Foundation Fundraising efforts, sponsored by his wife and Rotarian Aubrey Z-Howell. As Dallas has tried to present this award for the past three years, both he and new Foundation Chair Andy Esser were thrilled to make this Rotary honor a reality this evening.
Eating our way through risotto, salad, appetizers, salmon, short-ribs, chicken, collards, roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, butternut squash and copious amounts of wine, beer and ‘bubbly’, followed by delectable desserts left all attendees happy to have supported a great cause by eating a superb meal.
And of course, we would be remiss if we did not thank Dallas Stallings for his tireless efforts heading up our Club’s Foundation work for many years. He passes the torch to Andy Esser but not surprisingly he will continue his Foundation work across our Rotary Area, impacting even more people and projects.
Thanks go to all Rotarians who attended or sponsored attendees due to their exemplary service to the goals of Rotary and the Foundation. What a great way to raise funds to support the Foundation and all the great work it enables us to do both locally and internationally.
