Our annual Holiday Dinner, silent auction and elections at the Clearwater Casino were a huge success.  The silent auction generated $2,158 dollars for the apprenticeship.  Additionally the Chaine de Rotisseurs donated a lump sum of $2500 dollars to the apprenticeship.  Their support over the years has helped the apprenticeship grow and has enabled us as a chapter to send apprentices to regional and National conferences.  A special thank you goes out to Gary and Elaine Fuller for all their work on the silent auction.  We had over 90 people come out for the event and they were not disappointed.  The staff at the Clearwater again did an amazing job from the tray passed appetizers to the incredible meal we all enjoyed.  Without the support of the Clearwater Casino and all the contributors to the silent auction this night would not have been a success.
