  • Funding scholarships for deserving Clayton High School seniors

    passion for education

 Raleigh Special Event Catering Buffet
Mother nature tried her hardest to rain on our parade, but like the Postal Service, we deliver in rain, sleet or snow. After moving the buffet three times, we were finally able to serve the participants and volunteers a superb meal. Check out the video of the venue tent collapsing, located at the bottom of the page.

The golfers were served a variety of light and heavy Hors d’ Oeuvres. The golden Grilled Tuscan, Pita and Focaccia Breads were paired with Spinach Artichoke, Hummus and Tomato Basil Spreads. The BBQ “Birdie” Meatballs were devoured within minutes.
Raleigh Special Event Catering Summer Salad
After the apps were finished we moved on to the first tee; a bed of Fresh Summer Greens, tossed with Mozzarella, Cucumbers, Carrots and Tomatoes, and drizzled in our homemade Red Wine Vinaigrette.
Raleigh Special Event Catering Buffet Entree
The “back 9” entrees featured two pastas – Hand Breaded Chicken Parmesan and Baked Manicotti with Spinach and Mozzarella. We also set up an interactive carving station for the Rosemary Roasted Beef. The golfers enjoyed the piles of roast beef as mini-sliders topped with Balsamic Onion Marmalade, Horseradish and Whole Grain Mustard Sauces. Entrees were matched with a Sauté Vegetable Medley and Tuscan Bread on the side.

Raleigh Special Event Catering Tip: One of the hottest food trends for 2014 are miniatures. These smaller versions of their bigger selves pack more of a punch with your guests. Everyone enjoys little finger foods.

Desserts were a delectable tray of minis eclairs, cannolis, brownie and pie squares.
