Major Supporting Sponsor: Eastern Iowa Community Colleges Culinary Arts Program
Without the Scott Community College Culinary Arts Program, we would not be able to offer the caliber of event that we have. It is because of Chef Brad Scott and Diane Stanley that we are able to offer a delicious Maine lobster dinner for over 300 people. The students in this program have been instrumental in the success of the event, and we thank them for taking time out of their summer to come and put on such a wonderful event.
