PAMPI held its monthly educational followed by a silent auction on March 18. The event was kicked off by lunch and was followed by the keynote lecture by speaker Janine Driver, who spoke about the importance of body language. The afternoon was split into breakout sessions, followed by the silent auction.

Instead of focusing on the visual presentation of food, organizers took away the sense of sight entirely, outfitting diners with a blindfold at dinner.
