This weekend was one of those times when spring was making its sunshine filled warmth really known and I am so excited for the upcoming summer of sunny days and warm nights - not to mention AMAZING events! This past year, we were lucky to be able to participate in The Hope Gala which is a wonderful foundation that raises money for The American Cancer Society. This event was specifically geared this year to promote and reveal the plans for the new Hope Lodge! It was actually held at the future site of this new facility which will provide a "Home Away from Home" for cancer patients and their families - which is such a welcome service in our city. For this event, we pulled out all the stops! And because of the balmy temperatures, we treated the fundraiser's guests with an "All Cold" menu from start to finish - keeping them delighting over the delicious dishes, while keeping them cool too! Check it out!
What a beautiful site to host the new Hope Lodge in downtown Salt Lake City!
We love the simple elegance of the florals that adorn the tables. Always chic and beautiful!
Guests were greeted with a virtual smorgasbord of hors d'oeuvres! Nothing like variety to get the night started and the guest excited for what's to come!
The guests started their dinner with this GORGEOUS salad and artisan breads. SO YUMMY!
The dessert (my favorite part!) was this beauty! A perfect cold treat to end a perfect night!
Thank you so much to the American Cancer Society for letting us to continue to be a part of The Hope Gala. We so enjoy helping this worthwhile fundraiser and love the new and inventive menus we come up with every year! Happy eating everyone!
