Our 6th Annual Taste for Education Dinner and Auction was held WEDNESDAY, March 23, 2016

Thank you to everyone who made our 6th annual Taste for Education a success at Zuccaro Banquets & Catering. The evening began with tasting stations from restaurants such as Blackfinn Ameripub, Ciccarelli's Sports Bar Theater, Crews Inn, Dickey's BBQ, Piada Italian Street Food, Famous Dave's and so many more. Caterers from A Movable Feast, Mirage Banquet and Catering 2 You. Market fresh items from Nino Salvaggio's International Marketplace, Randazzo Fresh Market, and Vince & Joe's Gourmet Market. 

We offered amazing prizes this year including a Grand Prize of a Weber stainless steel grill with tools and everything needed to have a grand summer party. We had Tiger tickets, Wings tickets, spa packages, Disney Hopper passes, 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 trips to zoos and sporting events throughout Michigan 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!
