When I found out that BOST was having an event in April to help fund their housing project in Rogers, I reached out to BOST Events Coordinator, Alexa Cueto so I could help. Our local Chambers of Commerce had just joined forces to help BOST break ground for the Rogers Housing Complex on April 14th. This complex will house 6 adults and will be completed in 2017. Now they needed to raise money and awareness for this housing complex, and the idea of the Inaugural Chef & Winemakers Dinner was born.
Not only did I get to help set up on Wednesday, I also attended the Chef & Winemaker’s Dinner the following night. Coach Anderson’s house looked beautiful, and was filled with BOST board and foundation members, as well as generous supporters from Fort Smith and Northwest Arkansas. Chefs Kelly English from 21 C and Chef Matt McClure from Memphis served us a five course meal, as we bid on auction items and talked about the Rogers Housing Complex. The night was a great success! I was so proud to help BOST at this event, and am proud to say I am the now the newest member of the Northwest Arkansas Advisory Board for BOST.
