Guests were entertained by Michael Hearne of Taos fame. Honorary Chairs were Ann and Bob Dyer.  The event was a sell out -- a big success!
The raffle prizes included a weekend in Taos, complete with golf, wine tasting and gourmet dining; custom boots; champagne lunch for winner and 10 friends; and more.

Each guest was greeted with wine or a margarita. There was a cocktail reception from 6:30-7:45 which consisted of passed appetizers -- chicken and cheese quesadillas, mini pimento cheese sandwiches, tostadas and flautaus with avocado dipping sauce. There were also food stations set up with hummas and fried cauliflower. After the cocktail reception, attendees enjoyed a seated dinner -- a taco plate with 2 tacos and a brisket slider with yuca fries and queso, salsa, guacamole and chips. Emporium Pies offered a delicious chocolate and pecan pie dessert.
