Join us for an “egg”cellent evening of omelettes and champagne! Celebrate the 50th Anniversary Omelette Party on April 7, 2017.
Fifty years ago, Rudy Stanish was invited to travel to the Clearwater area from New York City as the featured chef of the fundraiser now known as The Omelette Party. Stanish earned the title of “Omelet King” creating his famous omelettes for celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy, Princess Diana and Tennessee Williams. Today, chefs from Carlouel Yacht Club prepare and serve dinner, with omelettes remaining the signature fare in Chef Rudy’s honor.
We owe our gratitude to the founding Omelette Party committee for building a foundation for a party that has raised over $3 million in support of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Thank you to: Ruth and Jack Eckerd, Lorrie and Ken Flowers, Jeanette and Bill Hale, Ruth and Jim Leonard, and Doris and Tommy Scanlan.
This event has seen generations of involvement and growth, all to benefit The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation. The Arc, like The Omelette Party, has a history of wonderful success. The Arc Tampa Bay prides itself on providing the highest quality of care to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community. The enriching Day Program welcomes 300 consumers every day and The Arc Tampa Bay’s 19 Group Homes provide a safe and supportive environment for our consumers.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your unwavering support of The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation!
