Well, we tried. Soroptimist International of Vacaville wanted to have an in-person fundraiser in 2021, but we realized that life is still too uncertain. With the health and safety of all of you, our loyal supporters, and our club members, we decided to have a drive-through event.
Fear not! We have contracted with Chef To Go Catering, aka Chef Daniel, to recreate the fabulous dinner he created for our 2019 dinner.
Lightly smoked Tri Tip, with a cabernet sauce, risotto, grilled fall veggies, salad, and ciabatta bread … is your mouth watering already?
There’s just one big distinction. There will be no lobster this year.
For many, many years, our fundraiser was one of the few in the region to feature lobster. And everyone loved it! But we had to be creative last year, when it was clear a lobster dinner was not going to happen. And so we looked to our mascot – Lola the Lobster – and shared her adventures with all of you on Facebook.
Lola went on the run to escape a hot pot. And in the end, we made amends and granted her a pardon. (So please don’t tell Lola that we plan a return of our Legendary Lobster dinner in 2022.)
In the meantime, the dinner will go on.
We’ve taken our famous silent auction online, and you can place a bid now. There are many fun, unique and amazing offerings, here are a few:
Bidding open now until Oct. 15. Be sure to register your phone number so you’ll be texted if someone outbids you…
