Scio Church Road, flanked by early-autumn trees turning amber and gold in the afternoon sun, seemed to beckon guests forward to the elegant Frutig Farms. The dazzling light perfectly matched the warm smiles of friends and families, gathering together to strengthen, support, and heal those among us who are hurting the most.

And our guests were well rewarded with absolutely incredible food! Choosing between Zingerman’s Roadhouse Limeade Swordfish, The Standard Bistro and Larder’s Porchetta and Risotto Milanese, Barton Hills’s Seared Scallops with Autumn Risotto, Katherine’s Catering’s Cider Braised Pork with Coconut Rice, The Moveable Feast’s Salmon and Maine Blue Crab Napoleon, Saline High School Culinary Arts Program’s Prime Rib Sliders, Silvio’s  Organic Ristorante e Pizzeria’s Pasta Norma, and Weber’s Prime Rib Au Jus with Horseradish Sauce, was no easy task. But somebody had to do it, and our guests rose to the task…
