In 2015, OVPA wanted to create a new kind of Fundraising event. They decided to throw an elegant Dinner Party. OVPA Board members asked people if they would like to buy or bid on enjoying a sophisticated and elegant dinner party for eight people. Groups of eight bid on or bought the dinners, outright. OVPA held two dinners that summer. Each dinner raised about $600; with a total of $1200.
Marcia Biskupski, Paula McMenamy (the OVPA President at that time), and Linda & Kim Kemper donated the food. Marcia, Paula and Linda cooked the gourmet food, which was absolutely delicious!
Marcia Biskupski recalls that “Michael Biskupski, Kim Kemper and Bill McMenamy dressed up as waiters and served dinner to their guests.”
The two dinners were held in the lovely home of Linda & Kim Kemper.
Flowers, fine China. and crystal glasses adorned the tables, which were covered with beautiful tablecloths. Of course, wine was served and enjoyed by all the guests and hosts. Both dinners included eight dinner guests who were treated like royalty as they savored their wonderful and flavorful dinners. The guests had a magnificent time!
And, according to Paula McMenamy, “The hosts had every bit as much fun as the guests!!”
