Anyone who attended the fundraiser dinner for Patty and our family last year may recall that one of the auction items up for grabs was a multi-course gourmet meal for eight persons in the home of the person with the winning bid. The meal was purchased by Neil McFadden and Eileen Pembroke -- thank you again. Kevin, Sharon and Neil, along with Kerry Shannon, Angela Zotos and Dennis Sobieski, attended to the guests' every wish -- and thank you again. Steve Byrne, who operates the wonderful fine-dining restaurant Sequel in Lombard, donated much of the food and wine for the evening. We are very grateful. Here are some images:

Oddly enough, in our own home that evening we were also enjoying filet mignon open-faced sandwiches and Hudson Valley organic duck breast with a white peppercorn-cognac reduction -- funny, that. It sounds amazing. Thanks again, guys.
