Every year at Luminations, a dinner with the university president is one of the auction items. Lourdes has been offering this for about eight years and it has become one of the most popular auction items. Last year Kaiko and John Zureich purchased this item.
The dinner was held on Friday, Jan. 13 in the Zureich’s home. Bob and Linda Helmer and Bob and Mary Arquette noted that they have great fun preparing the meal as well as cleaning up.
The Arquette’s prepared the entrée and dessert, which included individual beef Wellingtons and a double chocolate torte. The Helmers prepared the appetizers, salad and furnished the bread.
“But the true enjoyment is the wonderful group of people that are brought together,” noted Mrs. Arquette.
The guests of Mr. and Mrs. Zureich included Alan and Lisa Sattler, Steve and Peggy Klepper and Jim Findlay and Pamela Schaefer. Jim and Kay Murray were planning on attending, but were out of town.
A harpist, courtesy of Mrs. Zureich, provided background music during the dinner.
“It is always great fun and a very enjoyable evening. And, as always, to benefit Lourdes University students as they realize their dreams of a college education! ” Mrs. Arquette concluded.
