Jefferson City Branch NAACP Annual Freedom Fund Banquet and Silent Auction
"The Next 100 Years"
Capitol Plaza Hotel and Convention Center
Saturday, October 16, 2010
Silent Auction 5:30 pm
Dinner 7:00 pm
This year’s NAACP Annual Freedom Fund Banquet and Silent Auction will be an evening filled with excitement, elegance, and entertainment. The Capitol Plaza Hotel and Convention Center is the place where you’ll want to be on this Saturday, October 16th. The silent auction will kick off at 5:30 pm promptly and will last into the dinner as the bid competitions come to a climax! Items will include paintings, foods, presidential memorabilia, hotel stays, spa treatments and many other wonderful personal and household items. Music will fill the room at the Capitol Plaza Hotel as you gather with old friends and meet new ones. At 7:00 pm, dinner will be served. The menu was hand selected and will truly be a dining experience to remember! Guests will have two options. One option is a duet plate which includes English Sliced Roast Beef with Stuffed Mushroom Risotto and topped with a Mushroom Demi Glaze and Chicken Marsala. Mouth watering sides include Garlic Roasted New Potatoes, Green Beans Almandine, Rolls and Butter. If you don’t like that, you may prefer something a bit more on the southern side. The “Meal for Teal” may be your dinner choice for the evening. This includes Catfish served with Sweet Potatoes, Greens, and Corn Bread! Salads include Caesar Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Crisp Spinach Leaves, Shredded Parmesan Cheese, Tomato Wedges and Garlic Croutons with Caesar and Hot Bacon Dressing. For dessert the Capitol Plaza Hotel has a brand new desert that is simply delicious (especially if you are a chocolate lover) and you will be one of the first to indulge your taste buds with their Chocolate “Tiger Stripe” Cake. It’s totally new to their menu!
We hope you will join us for this semi-formal extravaganza!
