Women of Vision October News

A New Eagle Has Landed at Carson-Newman!

This  chainsaw sculpture is taking shape atop a tree trunk in front of the Chitwood Alumni House.  The beautiful old tree had to be taken down because it was dying, but the tree lives on with this amazing eagle sculpture. Be sure to stop by at Homecoming to see the finished eagle.

KaTom Holiday Fundraising Event a Huge Success

Chef Kenny Burlew at Work
Delicious Bruschetta

KaTom Restaurant Supply was a perfect venue for the Women of Vision first annual  "Holiday Season" event. Chef Kenny Burlew demonstrated how to make easy and delicious holiday appetizers including bruschetta, crabcakes, smoked salmon and cucumber slices, and pastry wrapped brie with raspberry preserves. Even better, everyone got to taste each one! 

Next, Designer Andy Winstead showed everyone how to make stunning Christmas table decorations and beautiful lighted wreaths.  There was even a lesson on bow making (use LOTS of ribbon!)  and strategic use of a glue gun (don't forget to clean up the "glue strings!")

KaTom owner and CEO, Patricia Bible, who serves on the Carson-Newman Board of Trustees, generously allowed Women of Vision to use her beautiful facility for a fun time of food, fellowship, and holiday cheer.  A silent auction was also held with many quality items including a Robert Tino painting, a queen set of Restonic bedding, and a four day get-away at a mountain cabin. Everyone who attended had a fabulous time, and plans are already being made to hold this successful event again next year.
