Wild caught tuna, Arizona elk, grass fed beef, quail and a sax quartet in the background. No, you’re not sitting at Flagstaff’s newest and most expensive fine dining restaurant; you’re sitting at FCF’s annual youth group Valentine’s dinner fundraiser. The Boggess family generously donates the fruits of their passions, fishing and hunting, for all of us to enjoy. The young men and women of the youth group did an outstanding job serving and assisting the Boggesses in hosting the event.
Of course, no Valentine’s Dinner is complete without dessert. A wide variety of options were available. There was even an apple pie baked by one of the girls in the youth group, which, as I understand, was a very popular dessert choice. Unfortunately I was full by the time I ate my Blueberry Crumb and part of another piece of Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting. 🙂
My wife and I were at the later seating at 7:00pm, which turned out to be perfect because we didn’t have to roll our stuffed mid-sections out of there too quickly. This gave us the opportunity to visit with friends we hadn’t seen in quite awhile.
If you missed it this year, be sure to plan on attending next year. You won’t find such an experience anywhere else for just $15 per person. And you may never again because I’m going to suggest that the price was too cheap. The experience was worth much more than that. It just might be $20 next year, you never know.
Oh, and let’s not forget that the proceeds go directly to sending the young men and women to Hume San Diego or World View Academy. Both events are on the schedule for this summer and both are wonderful experiences for our youth. My oldest son has been to both and I can give testimony that they’re worth it! So, be on the lookout for future opportunities to lend your financial support to sending these kids to one of these life-changing experiences.
