Celebrate Spring At Talbot Mentors Champagne Brunch

Talbot Mentors invites everyone to celebrate spring at a Champagne Brunch to be held Sunday, May 16, at 11:30 a.m. at Talbot Country Club. The event will feature gourmet omelets, live music and a silent auction.

This is the third year that Talbot Mentors has hosted the fundraiser. Executive Director Diana Trams appreciates the support it has received within the community. “Businesses and individuals have been very generous in donating items for the silent auction,” she said.

Auction items include a Congressional Country Club golf package, an in-home dinner for eight prepared by Chef Michael Forster, a sight-seeing flight, photographic services, jewelry and numerous other golf packages and gift certificates.

Last year the event raised over $7500 for the program. More than sixty Talbot County students are matched with volunteer mentors through the organization’s efforts.

Mentors and board members Jim Reed and Rita Hill have been coordinating the preparations for the brunch. Joan Dent is scheduled to provide the musical entertainment.

Four Talbot Mentors students will graduate from high school this year and will be special guests along with their mentors. Kyle Handy, Dale Johnson, Mark Murray and Shanice Palmer will all receive recognition at the brunch for their accomplishments.

Trams anticipates a good response for what she calls a “country club casual” event and recommends making reservations early. The cost is $60 per person. Those interested are asked to call the Talbot Mentors office by Friday, May 7.
