Co-op Fund-Raiser

Our Fund-raiser was a nice little, intimate affair. The board arrived early for the preparations.

We set up the carrotometer with our sign of appreciation.

We had everything: fresh local cheese.....

We had live jazz music....

... and a sommelier, who served some interesting wines and trained us to know how to appreciate them.
And of course what would a fancy fund-raiser be without a chocolate fountain and fresh strawberries from local farms?

Here's a closer view.

The Sommelier trained us to look for hints of grapefruit or berries as we sampled a variety of wines from Chardonnay to a Cabernet Sauvignon.

We were honored to have representatives from College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University and we used this occasion to try and let them know how grateful we are to them for their help in getting started.

It was great to see people enjoying the art!

And of course there were some speeches of support and thanks along with the celebration!

So now it is just a question of getting everything ready for the opening in one short week!
