A Bright and Bold Gala

For the last four years, Catering by Seasons has been honored to cater the annual fundraising gala for the United Community Ministries.

The UCM tasks itself to mobilize the power of community to equip, educate, and empower, vulnerable children, youth, adults and families to improve their lives. This event gathers the communities of Mount Vernon and Fairfax in Northern Virginia for an elegant evening.

Beginning with a cocktail hour, music and passed hors d’oeuvre of Margarita Shrimp, Apricots stuffed with Goat Cheese & Pistachios and Maui Tuna Sliders welcomed all to a live auction.

The first course was Baby Kale Salad followed by a dinner of Beef Tenderloin with Whole Grain Timbale and Carrot Soufflé. Dessert was a combination plate of Beignets, Raspberry Financiers, Espresso Madeleines and Chocolate dipped Palmier; so delicious!

It was a pleasure to work with Alberto Trevizo and Catering by Seasons. Alberto was knowledgeable and pleasant to work with, and was very accommodating when we had to postpone our wedding one year.

Stefanie was such a huge help! Everything was smooth, she helped us find ways to cut costs and advocated for us with our venue.

I can’t say enough great things about our entire experience planning our daughter's Bat Mitzvah with Glynis Keith, Catering Manager, with Catering by Seasons.
