State Intercom......October 4, 2001
Benefit dinner will transform
Café Laura into French bistro
one night at least, Café Laura patrons might think they are in
Paris instead of State College.
That's because Café Laura, located in Mateer Building on the University Park campus, will be converted to a French bistro for a dinner to benefit the Centre County United Way. The annual dinner, sponsored by the College of Health and Human Development and Penn State Food Services, will take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.
this year's dinner will be treated to a French meal prepared by executive
chef Matt Lambert and his staff. The evening's menu includes blue cheese
and potato tart; jumbo lump crab cake with infused oils; organic greens
with goat cheese; filet mignon with red wine reduction; and caramelized
apple tart. Guests are invited to bring their favorite wine to enjoy with
the meal. Door prizes from local merchants will be awarded after dinner.
According to Elana Pyle, co-chair of the College of Health and Human Development United Way campaign, all of the food is courtesy of Barry Scerbo, director of food services, and Lambert has donated his time to prepare the meal.
Tickets for the event are $30 and must be purchased in advance. Tables may be reserved. For more information or to make reservations, contact Tina Meyers at (814) 865-3253 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
