Support the Carroll Education Foundation with Delicious Treats!

This week on Minute with the Mayor, Mayor John Huffman chats with guests Karl Chester and Alexandra Martin of the Carroll Education Foundation about their upcoming Culinary Casino Royale Event benefiting Carroll ISD!

This year, philanthropy looks slightly different as the Carroll Education Foundation (CEF) sells tickets for live and silent auctions with a twist. At the April 22 event, CEF will host a culinary celebration to fund teachers spanning the district’s 11 campuses.

“At CEF, we believe that a great education begins and ends with great teachers. So, our mission is simple — we fund teachers,” said Martin, the Executive Director.

This event, which features 18 Southlake chefs, is the perfect recipe to make your tastebuds happy while you try good eats and support the CEF. Chef Raj Thomas of the Westin made a surprise appearance with his special dish for the Casino Royale — shrimp ceviche with fresh shrimp, pico de gallo, avocado smash, chipotle crema, and fresh cilantro sprouts. This dish will be just one of the flavorful dishes on the menu for eventgoers to enjoy.

Tickets for the event are selling out quickly, so snag yours before it is too late!
