This will be the 26th annual An Elegant Affaire and what a better
way to celebrate than with a glittering evening of fantastic food and fun. An Elegant Affaire is the major fundraiser for our extremely popular Arts in Schools program which last year served 14,142 children in the Fremont, Newark and New Haven School Districts. These students were able to participate in a wide range of multi-cultural assemblies, from Chinese acrobats to African American & Asian folk tales, folk music & jazz, puppeteers, magicians, learning about and getting an up-close look at California wildlife, thrilling BMX shows and much more. The need for these programs through LOV is still great. With another successful An Elegant Affaire, we can fill the need.
The event will be held at the Doubletree by Hilton again this year. There will be a champagne cocktail hour where you will be entertained by Salvador Vazquez on Mexican harp. This will be followed by a fantastic four-course gourmet dinner.
- Salad – classic wedge with bleu cheese dressing garnished with applewood smoked bacon, bleu cheese crumbles, green onion and red grape tomato halves
- Intermezzo – Italian semi –frozen shaved ice
- Main Course – tender beef flat iron steak with Argentinian sauce served on a bed of Yukon gold potatoes accompanied by season root vegetables
Vegetarian Option – Roasted Eggplant Napoleon – a layered gourmet delight with Portobello mushroom, spinach, kale and grilled zucchini
- I LOV Chocolate – decadent chocolate drizzled with raspberry sauce topped with fresh whipped cream.
Besides a fantastic evening of delectable dining, there will be live and silent auctions thanks to the generosity of the Mayors, School Superintendents, School Boards and Teachers Associations of Fremont, Union City and Newark as well as other dignitaries. We will be putting up some wonderful prizes on the non-profit auction site Bidding For Good. Our auction site will be open January 30 through February 17.
