Benefit Dinner, 17 September 2010

A good time was had by all at the annual "Come Smile Awhile" Benefit Dinner at the Sisters of the Holy Names Convent in Los Gatos, California.

The event began with drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the convent garden, and the very popular "Wine Toss" game, whereby attendees have a chance, or two, to win a bottle of wine. The game is always the first surprise of the evening, because Sister Mary Haupt cleverly recreates it each year to incorporate the night's theme.

This year's delicious buffet offered roasted prime rib, salmon, a butter lettuce and watercress salad, a gratin of organic summer squash with tomato and carmelized onion, glazed organic carrots, and garlic mashed Yukon Gold potatoes. A choice of wines and a trio of petite desserts--lemon meringues, raspberry mouse in a chocolate cup, and a cupcake--were the finishing touches on this gourmet meal.

Proceeds from the annual dinner contribute to the support of our senior sisters in California who continue in ministry as volunteers in numerous projects throughout the community.
