Attendees at this year’s awards ceremony will be treated to great food and entertainment – all included in the price of admission!

The students in the Mountain View High School Culinary Arts Program have created a special menu of tasty appetizers that will not disappoint. A dazzling display of fresh and roasted vegetables accompanied by artisan breads and crackers, inventive dips and artisan cheeses will be on hand to tantalize your taste buds. Check out the full menu here.

Beer will be on tap from our partners over at Deschutes Brewery, wine will be available from Elixir, Bigfoot Beverages is providing soft drinks and Precision Body & Paint is providing bottled water. There will be something for just about every taste and mood.

Once again this year, our entertainment for the evening will be provided by Chilly Thursdays! This all-girl rock band from Cascade School of Music put on quite the show last year and had the audience clapping and singing along. We’re looking forward to an equally energizing performance at this year’s awards ceremony.
