I love good food. So, if you are ever having an event, all you need is either free food or food that helps a cause and I'm there.

This time, we have the opportunity to help out a cause and eat some gourmet food. The CSI Culinary Arts students are holding their annual Italian Buffet fundraiser Thursday, October 6th, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the CSI Desert Café.

The students will be preparing and serving great Italian dishes like lasagna, spaghetti, penne alfredo, ravioli, and an assortment of salads, breads, and desserts. They'll also have sweet and sour chicken (now part of a well balanced Italian meal?). In addition to being a fundraiser, this is also sort of a mid-term exam for the students in the program. This event usually sells out, so get your tickets in advance. They’re $16 for adults and $8.50 for ages 5-12. Call Lauri for info at 208-732-6300.
