I have been in Tampa, FL for a few months now and Saturday, November 7th was one of the best days I have had here. Ceron and Donald hosted us at Buti T Ful Farms in Plant City for a wonderful evening.
The FArm To Table event included an extravagant dinner, silent auction, live music presented by Erin and The Project and lots of wine and beer. The renowned Chef Stefan from Mahan's prepared a scrumptious meal for 120 people. We had steak, chicken, and sweet potatoes, which were preceded by one of the best salads I have ever had.
We began the evening mingling with everyone in attendance and touring the beautiful property. One of the coolest things about these FARA grassroots fundraising events is being able to connect with the FA community and its supporters. Gavin 'Gav' Lambert made an appearance just before dinner and was the star of the night. Gav and his family are a prime example of how to keep moving forward with the mentality that impossible is nothing.
At the end of the evening, $15,000 was raised for FARA and we are closer to finding a cure for this horrible disease. I am looking forward to this event in the years to come. Together we will cure FA.
