Kathi Wins Writing Award

Canopy Rose owner, Kathi Dameron has won the 2nd Place Award in the Newspaper Article Category at the 2008 Southern Christian Writer's Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for her article, Simple Act of Sharing Food Can Truly Bring People Together. This article appeared in the Northeast Chronicle - Tallahassee Democrat during the spring of 2008 in the Entertaining with Kathi column.

Grand Prize Winner In Cooking Contest

The year was 1987 when Kathi Dameron, a passionate gourmet cook who spent her days teaching 32 second graders, and her weekends hosting fun parties for her circle of friends at her waterfront home on Florida's North Hutchinson Island, won two prizes in the first cooking contest she ever entered. One of these prizes was the coveted Grand Prize. At that moment Kathi knew that one day in the not too distant future her special dream to launch her very own catering company would be realized. Seven years later that day arrived with the birth of Canopy Rose in Florida's Capital City in 1994.
