alert'S FIRST-EVER FUNDRAISING EVENT RAISED $4,000!
ALERT Health Board of Directors Dished Up Fun and Dinner at the 2009 Ragin’ Cajun Fundraising Dinner
The turn out was excellent at Rosey Baby Crawfish and Cajun House at 4587 North University Drive in Lauderhill. Rosey Baby is a fantastic and genuinely authentic Cajun restaurant worth visiting if you’re ever in the area. Make sure to meet Rosey Baby owner Jeff to let him know you read about his eatery on ALERT's website or at the fundraising event.
The theme of this fundraising dinner was to pit Board member against Board member to see who could raise the most tips from their guests throughout the evening.
The Directors worked hard all evening serving up fun and a delicious dinner to special friends and work associates. The evening's photographs were snapped by Stephen Tosch from www.musicandmodelmarketing.com.
The outstanding menu included prime rib, sirloin, mahi-mahi and baby back ribs. Throughout the evening, guests were entertained by the music styling of Jim Williamson from Big Hit Entertainment who belted out tunes familiar to us "baby-boomers” with many guests dancing the night away.
It was pure delight to see how creative and enthusiastic the Board was. It was a high-spirited quest to win the coveted "Top Server Award" for 2009 but in the end Val Adia, ALERT's Vice President, took home the trophy. The other Board members were presented with a medal of honor for their dedication and hard work.
Raffle items were donated by each Board member including beautiful candles, spa gift certificates, special single-malt scotch and a wine country basket (to name a few). Three gorgeous one-of-a-kind Chinese porcelain vases donated by retired Judge John Gaudiosi. Beautiful mounted photographs were donated by Sharon Kreycik-League, a true adventurer who travels throughout Florida to immortalize the most amazing creations of nature on film. More of Sharon's work can be seen at www.picturetherealflorida.com
ALERT also thanks the wonderful people at Rosey Baby for being gracious hosts and serving the best best Cajun-style food in town. Special thanks go to Rosey Baby staff Julie and Ellen for helping us get our "party" on, Angela Graziotti for the amazing cookie centerpieces and Rene Souza for her artistic genius in creating the server's aprons and event sign.
A big THANK YOU to our volunteers: Angela Graziotti, Nic Bardisa, Ashley Andress and Bill Bardisa.
Each and every person made this event special and successful. The Board of Directors raised $4,000 to benefit ALERT Health.
We’re looking forward doubling
that next year! Each member of the Board and their guests have our deepest appreciation.
