At 6:30pm there will be more than thirty restaurants providing a sampling of their fare during the Taste of Local Cuisine. The feast lasts until 7:30pm so come hungry! Please know that there is no particular line to stand in, so waiting is not a problem. Get your taste buds ready. Have fun sampling the finest our local restaurants and caterers have to offer.
During the Auction/Raffle we hold a Heads or Tails event. The winner receives half of the money raised from the sale of blinky-light lapel pins. To date, each Heads or Tails winner has won over $1,000! Be sure to purchase your pin when you get here. We will have several volunteers that evening walking throughout the patrons selling the lapel pins.
