Bring on the Southern Charm featured an extensive menu including gourmet appetizers and multiple gourmet food stations featuring every Southern recipe you can imagine. The Culinary Arts students worked together with instructors Chef Janea Makowski, Chef Jim Rhegness and Chef Sarah Sadlier to prepare the dishes. The Silent Auction featured items created by Penta students and staff along with donations from area businesses.
Theme for the event was “Bring on the Southern Charm.” Proceeds from the dinner and silent auction benefit a general scholarship fund and the Hirzel Scholarship fund at Penta. The scholarships assist students with either post-secondary tuition or tools.
