CULINARY CAPER SERVES FEAST OF FOOD AND FUNDRAISING

Over 300 diners gathered at the RSA Activity Center on Sunday, March 5th to enjoy over a dozen of Montgomery’s finest chefs, caterers, and food professionals who offered their delicious gourmet dishes with their donated time, skills, and talent. The menu and chefs were coordinated by Al Steineker, owner of The King’s Table Catering, who has worked nearly 17 years on the Caper to ensure all enjoy a feast of flavors and cuisines to fulfill every appetite with the menu ranging from appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts. The Caper was the place to be for this sold-out affair with 36 tables filled with sponsors, special guests, and community members all to support MACOA and Meals On Wheels.  The Presenting Sponsor for the 23rd Annual Culinary Caper was Baptist Health while Caddell Construction served as the Signature Sponsor.  There were also 17 additional sponsors who generously donated to make the fundraiser a success.
