Letter: Event made possible by volunteers, sponsors
To the Editor:
On behalf of the Rotary Club of New Richmond and the St. Croix Art and Culinary Show Committee, I would like to thank the community, sponsors and participants for helping make this year's event possible.
In order to pull off an event like this, it takes a group of dedicated volunteers. The volunteers included honorary chairs Rhonda Zontelli and Melissa Huber, not to mention the many Rotarians, STRIVE students, Stout students, staff of Belarietta's and The Deerfield.
I would like to give special thanks to Randy Calleja and his staff of Ready Randy's. We are blessed to have R&D Banquet Hall hold this event and Randy's collaboration with 15 different chefs and their helpers in his banquet hall kitchen is greatly appreciated.
Also thanks to Jeff Holmquist of the News for promoting our event and giving recognition to the many artist and culinary participants who make this event such a success.
Because of this support, we were successful in raising more than $10,000 for the Rotary Club programs and scholarships. We hope that our participants and guest will return next year for the fifth annual St. Croix Art and Culinary Show.
