GREENFIELD — Surrounded by the happy chatter of the hungry crowd at Saturday’s Cougar Cuisine buffet, Eldon Lewis took a moment to reflect.

The festive all-you-can-eat meal and accompanying silent auction bring together members of the community to raise funds for a cause that is dear to the Lewis family.

For 10 years, Cougar Cuisine has served as one of Greenfield-Central’s biggest fundraisers to support student scholarships, one of which is in memory of Lewis’ son, Todd Lewis, a G-C student who died in October 2006, just after graduation, following a lengthy battle with cancer.

“Memories – just brings things back,” Lewis said, standing in the G-C cafeteria Saturday night. “It’s a real good thing.”

The two-hour event featuring food and beverage samples drew 407 people Saturday who sampled fare from 14 local restaurants. The event raised a total of about $8,400 for G-C scholarships.
