Anthem Golf & Country Club in Anthem, Arizona, kicked off the start of the summer season with a Beer Dinner featuring a local brewery, Uncle Bear's. The beer, named after a family Labrador name Bear, offers 11 different beers on draft and in cans. During the Beer Dinner, the club offered seven of those beers with and seven food pairings, crafted by the club’s culinary team led by Executive Chef Mark Lietzke and Chef Shawn Ross.
More than 60 Members attended, enjoying great beer, great food and even greater friends. Uncle Bear's also gave away 10 Growlers and one lucky Member won a full Growler with their beer of choice.
University of North Carolina students who were unable to travel home for Thanksgiving still enjoyed a deliciously grand meal at The Carolina Club, which hosted a Member-sponsored Thanksgiving feast for all those left on campus.
According to WNCN News, Brian Gottfried, a UNC senior, couldn't travel home for the holiday because he is "a member of the marching band who was playing at the football gam
e that weekend." He was “incredibly grateful. I think Thanksgiving is a great holiday to be able to share with a lot of people and being able to share it with the students and having the generosity to be able to do that in a time when a lot of people are off doing their own thing has been wonderful."
In the spirit of giving, Carolina Club Members paid for students' dinners, some Members providing as many as 10 meals. Overall 195 students from 30 countries enjoyed a meal the Carolina Club this Thanksgiving.
A special thanks to the sponsors of the event, The Carolina Club Members and the UNC Educational Foundation for their kindness and generosity.
