4th Annual Gunther’s Gourmet Gala

This is the 4th year of this very special event. It started out as an idea for Michael Lampros of Gunther’s Gourmet to give back a little for his good fortune, but now the Gala has turned into an event where everyone who attends helps each other.

Plus the vendors are only charged $35, and that is to cover the food and drink costs. Michael cooks up to 80 lbs of wings and cheese sticks, and even has the blender going to serve up icy cold beverages. This year he got some local brewmasters to donate some of their creations in hopes to also get someone to take them in. Not a bad way to get free beer donations, eh?
