Kitchens Tour Excitement

On Saturday, October 29th, I attended the 16th Annual Communities In Schools (CIS) Kitchens Tour.  What a fun and excited weekend for CIS!  Over 500 people came out to see some of the most beautiful kitchens in the Idelwild neighborhood.  Thank you so much to the homeowners in this gorgeous community who so graciously opened their homes to help serve the kids of our community.  Thanks to all of our sponsors, homeowners, chefs and volunteers – we truly had a day to remember.

It was fantastic to watch the live Chef demonstrations outside in the beautiful weather – along with all of the incredible edible dishes they cooked up inside each home.  These homes were beautiful.  Some had an extensive collection of art, some had landscaping and backyards that were stunning, others had the most beautifully decorated tables – and of course all of the kitchens came right from a magazine.  What a treat to get to spend a Saturday with great food and wonderful people all to raise money for CIS so that we can keep more kids in school and graduate them!  It is such an honor to be involved with an organization that strives for excellence in everything they do.
