2014 Wild Game cook off for Smith Endowment

Winning Team from the wild game cook off
The February 22 date for this second annual Wild Game cook off and Auction was not chosen randomly, since it's the birth date of Miss Calista Lynn Smith. The Odum farm was once again the setting for this night of respectful remembrance that will also eventually yield a scholarship from the endowment. Cooking teams produced delicacies like shrimp and grits, shrimp bog, mustard fried venison, venison tenderloin, dove bites, quail bites, duck bites and alligator fingers. After the judges tasted all of the game dishes it was Team Turkey Run Farm that came out on top in the 2014 Cook Off. The fundraiser continued with a couple of raffles, and a silent auction with plenty of hand crafted donations from the community. A live auction included furniture, fire pits, antique trunks, golf packages and of course hunting trips for turkey, waterfowl and quail. The bidding was brisk and all for a good cause, while the good weather conditions made it possible for a large crowd to attend.
