CEF travels back in time for the future of education

This year’s Carroll Education Foundation (CEF) Culinary Celebration aims to enhance education throughout the Carroll ISD through delicious food from more than twenty- five restaurants and a ‘60s theme of “Peace, Love and Dragons.”

Event Co-chair Sarah Mason plans to inject energy of a bygone era into the long-standing event to create a fun and altruistic blast from the past. She believes ‘the more the merrier’ for benefits such as this when she says, “I encourage everyone to bring out their hip huggers and beads and join us to celebrate Peace, Love, and our beloved Dragons!”

“We want everyone to join in the fun,” ads Co-chair Mimi Tran, “we have not only [American Idol standout and Dallas resident] Celena Rae, but the powerhouse of local charity events, Scott Murray as the emcees for the evening.”

In addition to local celebrities plans for the event held at the Southlake Hilton include a deejay spinning timely dance music and plenty of live entertainment, auctions and foodie favorites from a bevy of notable local eateries. Long time CEF supporters, yet first time samplers, Southlake’s own Feedstore BBQ joins an impressive list of fine restaurants inlcuding; Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House, Winewood Grill, Copeland’s of New Orleans, Mi Dia from Scratch, Brio Tuscan Grille and Del Frisco’s Grille who all will be serving up their best bites for the benefit of educating youth.

Like many local restaurateurs, Executive Chef of Del Frisco’s Grille Aaron Henschen will be on hand serving his signature Ahi Tuna Tacos and Prime Grille Cheeseburger Sliders. He sums up how many of the sponsoring restaurants feel about the event, “Del Frisco’s puts down roots in every location, becoming an active and enthusiastic part of the community and an eager supporter of both local charities and national organizations. We are very pleased to be involved with the Carroll Education Foundation here in Southlake, Texas, where our home office is based.” 

“The ‘60s was a creative, think outside the box, time period,” explains Mason. “In serving today’s public school districts we also need to be creative in how we raise and spend money in times like these.”
