pleased with festival success
at one of several festival food stations.
College Foundation members hailed the "Springfest"
Food and Wine Festival as a big success after it drew nearly
350 guests to the campus last month.
Twenty-four major sponsors and more than 50 participating
businesses and donors contributed to the success of the event.
Springfest raised about $20,000 for scholarships, more than
twice last years proceeds.
"The numbers are great but they dont tell the story
of how much fun everybody had," said Gary Bombalicki,
Foundation president. "Almost every one of our guests
came early and stayed until the very end."
Bombalicki said the raffling of prizes throughout the afternoon
and the abundance of food were two reasons why most guests
stayed from beginning-to-end. Gourmet choices prepared by
the colleges own Culinary Arts Institute and participating
restaurants included grilled scallops, penne pasta and sausage,
Mexican Cobb salad, prime rib, soft tacos, chocolate covered
strawberries, and a variety of other pastries and desserts.
Crafted beers provided by Labatt USA and fine wines offered
by Agua Dulce Vineyards and other vinters helped round out
Mission College and its Foundation thank the many sponsors
who helped make the festival a success.
