Charity Luncheon

Sixteen ladies enjoyed a lovely day of lunch and bridge at a Unit #448 Charity Event which raised almost $400 for the Union Gospel Mission….It was held at the home of Cristina and Max Gallotti

Cristina Gallotti (one of my dearest and most precious friends) and I were co-hostesses.  Max Gallotti was the sommelier and caddy.  Ron Krueger was his sometime assistant

The day began with appetizers which included mini peppers stuffed with Cristina’s homemade salmon antipasto, dried apricots stuffed with cheese and pecans and melon wrapped in prosciutto..  This was followed by a kale salad and chicken, prosciutto, spinach and feta baked in filo.   Dessert was Gerry’s decadent molten chocolate cakes with Cristina’s homemade gelato.


The lunch was followed by 30 boards of duplicate bridge with Brenda Simpson directing. Lynn Hayes and Karen Wilson tied for first and received prizes as well as points.  Everyone went home winners with special jars of plum jam made by Cristina  from plums on Gerry and Ron’s  trees.

What a great fundraising idea. Lots of work but lots of fun too. The menu looks yummy - I can drool even if I can't eat some of it any more.
