Delicious fundraiser served at FDLTCC
January 24, 2020
More than 330 people attended last week's Food for Thought event at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College and set a fundraising record.
The popular food tasting event raised more than $25,000 for student scholarships and celebrated its seventh year Thursday, Jan. 16.
Some 15 local restaurants, coffee shops, caterers and others volunteered to provide samples of their signature food and beverage specialties while attendees wandered from vendor to vendor filling their bellies and tantalizing their taste buds.
Diners also voted on their favorite foods.
The winner of the Golden Spoon Award (for the crowd favorite entrée) was Jim Vnuk of Jim & Jo's Catering for his beef tenderloin with mushroom and red wine sauce.
The Silver Spoon Award (crowd favorite dessert) went to the Warming House for their specialty ice cream sandwiches made with waffle cones.
Trapper Pete's owner Cindy Peterson has been to every single Food for Thought event. This year she served a shrimp and lobster dip.
"I went to college here, my older girl started College in the Schools classes here," she said. "It's good to give back."
