There will be wonderful items featured on the silent auction and big board including sports memorabilia, trips, and jewelry from Grayson Allen Fine Jewelers. The wine pull also will offer unbelievable deals where you will pay $25 for a bottle of wine that could be valued at more than $250.

The theme of this year’s Culinary Celebration is “Denim & Dragons at the CEF Corral.”  The decorations committee has big plans to make this year’s event one of the most exciting.  Every booth will have a western feel.

Grayson Allen Fine Jewelers dreams in green! This year's jewelry pull will feature a one-of-a-kind custom creation, worthy of any Dragon fan. This beautiful, custom designed necklace is being made just for the CEF event and 1 lucky winner of the jewelry pull. Stay we will be posting pictures of this necklace "coming to life", step by step, as it is made.  Jewelry pull chances are $50 each.
