On September 27th, 2008 we did a one of a kind event called the Wellderly Social in San Diego. Hundreds of healthy elderly men and women who donated their time and blood, for a good cause to Scripps Research Center, were rewarded with an invitation to this thank you event. The Eco Caters’ staff dressed up in 40’s and 50’s style attire to create the ambiance of old school service. Organic Roy Rogers and Shirley Temple beverages were served from the bar while fresh cooked sliders with organic free range beef, shrimp pipettes, beggars purses and more were passed on trays by the staff. Our miniature burgers, or sliders, were the biggest hit with the guests – made with grass fed beef, blue cheese and caramelized onions on a fresh baked organic slider roll. The band, consisting of all throw back band members, provided great entertainment. On the black and white checkered dance floor, the research participants danced the afternoon away. Everyone seemed to be extremely enjoying the band, excited about the food, enthusiastic about the dress of the staff and happy to have been a part of this good cause. Eco Caters is also thrilled about being given the opportunity to serve these wonderful people.
Eco Caters is always excited to cater events that are laid back and for a good cause. The guests at this event were very deserving of a treat and it came in the form of delicious organic catering from local San Diego farms.
