GREENVILLE – Kay Sloat of Greenville was this year's winner of the annual Cancer Association of Darke County's Gourmet Dinner for Eight Raffle. The dinner took place June 1, at the home of Kris and Bill Osterbur, Greenville. The Osterburs are a part of the group that prepares, serves and cleans up from this special dinner.
Eikenberry's Super Valu once again donated the ingredients for the dinner. Minuteman Press donated the tickets for the raffle, which was held at the February board meeting for the Cancer Association. The meal was prepared by volunteers who are some of the members of the Gourmet Dinner Club of Greenville: Randy and Amy Breaden, Tom and Suzie Brown, Anne Brumbaugh, Bill and Nancy Cooper, Tom and Julie Graber, Steve and Eileen Litchfield and Bill and Kris Osterbur. All proceeds, $2,643.32, went to the locally operated and independent Cancer Association of Darke County (CADC).
The evening began with peppered goat cheese with French bread and a roasted yellow pepper spread with spring veggies while the guests enjoyed time in the Osterbur’s living room. The menu, requested by the winner, consisted of French onion soup, a tossed salad with home grown greens and a raspberry vinaigrette dressing, rolls, Prime Rib, Duchesse potatoes and asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. The dessert, a menu surprise, was a chocolate ganache encased orange poppy seed cake.
