Our 7th Annual Taste for Education Dinner and Auction was held Thursday, March 23, 2017

Thank you to everyone who made our 7th annual Taste for Education a success at Zuccaro Banquets & Catering. The evening began with tasting stations from 26 different restaurants such as bd's Mongolian Grill, Freddy's Bar & Grill, Grey Ghost Detroit, Jet's Pizza, MacRay Banquets & Events, Penne Lane Ristorante Italiano and so many more. Caterers from A Movable Feast, Chef Raymone Catering and Mirage Elegant Banquets & Catering. Market fresh items from Nino Salvaggio's International Marketplace, Randazzo Fresh Market, and Vince & Joe's Gourmet Market. 

Jennifer Ann Wilson, WXYZ reporter and Chippewa Valley High School Alumna, added excitement to the evening as our special guest emcee.

We offered amazing prizes this year including two different prizes in our Grand Prize raffle, a Jimmy John's Stadium suite for a game and beautiful handmade adirondack chairs. We had autographed NHL player and Chippewa Valley High School Alumus Jeff Zatkoff items, Tiger tickets, Wings tickets, spa packages, Disney Hopper passes, an American Girl doll, a two night stay at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island and many more exclusive prizes. We also had some fun auction items like a kickball game with County Executive Mark Hackel and a dinner and ride on the fire truck with the Clinton Township Fire Department.  We had various certificates for activities throughout Michigan that adults as well as children would enjoy that included delicious restaurant certificates to go with them. 

This year we raised over $30,000, and the proceeds from this event will fund our Teacher Mini-grant Program that provides unique and exciting learning experiences for the students at Chippewa Valley Schools.  Thank you to all who made our evening a great success!
