sponsor sp ot lig ht Sponsors that have supported MPINCC since the February issue of Perspective are recognized below. The Programs Committee experimented with a new format for the Jan. 21, 2009 Professional Education Program (PEP). The January PEP was held in the evening at the beautiful and versatile Bently Reserve. Blue Water Party Rentals set the stage with the latest in tables, chairs, linens, glassware, china, silverware, lighting, buffet and kitchen equipment. Melons Catering outdid itself with passed hors d’oeuvres during a short networking gathering prior to the start of the first roundtable session. Following the roundtables, Melons revealed several food stations and Freedom Bakery & Confections provided cupcakes for dessert. Throughout the evening DJ Raffi, sponsored by Innovative Entertainment, provided musical transitions for the announcements and session changes and then provided music for the reception. Wine Country Destinations coordinated the wine tasting. Gene Hwang of Orange Photography documented the evening through photos.
