Pulling Strings is back but with a twist


This year's Pulling Strings event is adjusting to the times we are living in.


On Saturday, Oct. 3, Chef and UCPCC board Vice President Keith Allen and his wife, former ABC30 news anchor Liz Harrison, will be creating a three-course meal that can be picked up for takeout at our Arts and Technology Center, 4224 N. Cedar Ave., Fresno, from 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m.


The meal includes Allen's famous stuffed New York steak for two topped with mushrooms; Ensalada de Choclo, a salad of carmelized corn with spinach, roasted bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic and red onion in a lime and honey sauce; sides of roasted rosemary garlic potatoes and seasonal Italian squash medley; and cannoli from Famous Ray's Northside Deli for dessert.


The price of dinner is $35 per person; $60 for two people; and an additional $20 if you would like to add a chef's choice of wine.


"Even though we are stuck at home and living in different times, UCPCC is excited to offer a drive-thru Pulling Strings dinner," says Roger Slingerman, UCPCC executive director. "This is an annual fundraiser for UCPCC and we felt we wanted to keep momentum and let people know we are still providing services to our students and every little bit counts! Thanks to Keith Allen and his wife, Liz Harrison, for making this a reality! Don’t miss out on the good food and a great way to support students and staff at UCPCC."
