Coconino Community College student Sara Jansen offered her painting, “Crate of Delights,” to be auctioned at the school’s annual Palette to Palate spring fundraising event. CCC Marketing Director Brian Harris reported that more than $30,000 was brought in to support classroom improvements and offer enriching field trip experiences to students.
“Local artists and restaurants were incredibly generous with their time, work and talent to create one of Flagstaff’s most anticipated evenings of the year,” he said. “We can’t thank the community enough for rallying behind our students and future artists who add to Flagstaff’s quality of life with their skills.”
Restaurants who won the Palate of Choice Award included The Cottage for Best Hors D’oeuvre; Fat Olives for Best Dessert; and SoSoBa for Best Presentation. The event was held at the CCC Lone Tree Campus.
