What a great evening. Close to 100 guests attended a superb buffet at the St. Andrew’s Church Parish Hall here in Colchester.  A number of the attendees walked away as winners of some great tea cup raffle baskets, received awards for a variety of successes on the Chanticlair Golf Course and were absolutely blown away by the results of Luke Hajdasz’s fund raising efforts to benefit the Colchester Senior Center over the past 3 years. The exact dollar amount eludes me but it was announced last night that it exceeded $14,000. This young man, with awesome Hajdasz family’s support came up with this idea, created the game plan, solicited donations, worked diligently with the Senior Center staff and of course the management at Chanticlair. His goal was to reach $10,000. Well done Luke!!  The image with Becky holding her “smart phone” with Luke and Patty Watts (Director of Senior Services) looking on are seeing for the first time the results of his labors.

The generously donated tea cup raffle baskets were amazing, lots of golf related items, a football signed by Patriots player J Edelman, sporting event tickets, restaurants, spa treatments and many, many more. I will add that there were several very, very lucky attendees. You know who you are 🙂
The buffet was prepared by Papa Z’s restaurant including salads, crusty bread and butter, pasta creations, (the alfredo chicken was my favorite) and slices of pizza. A number of people went back for seconds. Dessert was a huge cake decorated with a golf theme of course accompanied by a fizzy pink punch.

There were many workers behind the scenes throughout this 2 day event ranging from checking in the golfers as they arrived to setting up and cleaning up at the Parish Hall and a multitude of tasks in between.  Thank you to all of these committed ladies and gentlemen.
