The Triangle's National Association of Catering Executives (NACE) held their 2009 Top of the Table Gala last night at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham to raise funds for the Food Shuttle through a tabletop design competition and silent auction. Guests could sponsor a BackPack to raise money for our BackPack Buddies program as well. The theme for the Gala was based on the Broadway musical Wicked, and featured stunning tabletop design categories like "Wicked Weddings" and "Green with Envy." The decorations were glittering with emerald green and ruby reds from Wicked and the movie The Wizard of Oz. Top catering companies from the Triangle area served hors d'oeuvres and drinks for guests while the acoustic guitar band, Melonbelly, entertained the crowd.
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle extends a sincere thanks to NACE and all the guests who made the event spectacular to raise support in the collaborative effort to fight hunger in the Greater Triangle!
