Cru ‘Performs’ at Spoleto Auction

February 6, 2013

Each winter Spoleto Festival USA holds an auction and we were honored to serve up some of our favorite delights this year. On February 1, the 33rd Spoleto auction was held at the Memminger Auditorium and over 300 guests came out to support the arts.

Among the private concert by famed musicians The Charlton Singleton Jazz Enselble (Featuring Cyrus Chestnut), the beloved live auction, a complimenting online auction, and, of course, savory bites from Cru Catering the night was a huge success with all proceeds going to the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra.

Via Charleston Magazine our Mini Tacos and Tomato and Mozzarella Fritters were among the favorites. “Partygoers mingled and sipped drinks at the cocktail hour, and savory bites from Cru Catering helped whet everyone’s appetites. The tomato and mozzarella fritters and miniature tacos were a huge hit.”
