(Sept. 10, 2015) – Carson-Newman University’s Women of Vision (WOV) and Patricia Bible, president and CEO of KaTom Restaurant Supply, Inc. will co-host a pre-holiday season event on Saturday, September 26. The event will be held at KaTom’s headquarters in Kodak.

From 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., guests will hear from Chef Kenny Burlew and Designer Andy Winstead, as the two share foods and decorations aimed at making holiday gatherings a success.

This is a great opportunity to get a jump on holiday planning,” said Kay O’Brien, the University’s First Lady and WOV president. “There will be a silent auction and the opportunity to peruse the ultimate kitchen wonderland. The best part of the day, however, will be building friendships with energetic, creative and engaging people.”

Burlew’s vast chef experience includes running multiple restaurants, a four star hotel as well as serving as one of the personal chefs for the president of the University of Tennessee.

Winstead is the owner of Andy’s Flower Shoppe in Oneida, which has served the area for 14 years.

In addition to participating in the event’s silent auction, guests will also have the opportunity to take part in food tastings, receive tips on decorating, and participate in a silent auction.

All proceeds support Women of Vision, an organization grounded in the belief that any gift of time, service, resources, skills, personal or professional experience, or relationships can be used to enhance and extend the experience of Christian higher education at Carson-Newman

In the relatively short time since its establishment, WOV has significantly impacted campus through projects and initiatives. Such campus enhancements have included renovations of the University’s Appalachian Cultural Center, the lobby of Dougherty Science Center, historic Swann Hall and the addition of a Fireside Reading Room in the University’s library.

Event tickets are $50, and may be purchased by calling 865-471-3459. Space is limited.
