Taste! Central Florida

One of my favorite food events of the year is coming up soon, the newly re-branded TASTE! Central Florida Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 6:45 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

LOCAL EVENT. LOCAL CHEFS. LOCAL CAUSE.

In previous years, proceeds (from what was formerly called Taste of the Nation) have impacted thousands of lives both locally and around the country. Organizers have decided to further pinpoint the direction this year by advocating more directly for those in our neighboring communities struggling to put food on their plates. TASTE! Central Florida is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.

Check out all the fun!

Tickets

Tickets are $150 per person and can be purchased here.

What can you expect?

The beautiful ballroom at Orlando World Center Marriott is wall-to-wall with tables of bountiful, fun, and creative food and drink options. They’re not, however, the only offerings. Guests can participate in a fully-automated mobile silent auction featuring signed memorabilia, stays at upscale hotels, dining experiences, rounds of golf on area courses, and exotic adventures and getaways.

Taste! Central Florida is also bringing back the Edible Orlando Giving Tree, where guests can win certificates and gift cards to Orlando’s most popular establishments. Donate $50 for the chance to select envelopes hanging from a towering tree. Prizes range from $25 to $300 in value. It’s an exciting way to donate. Who knows what you’ll win?

Wine lovers will enjoy the Instant Wine Cellar game where participants have a chance to win more than 150 bottles of wine valued at more than $2,500!

Guests can also take their chances on winning a bottle of wine with a Ring Toss For Wine fundraiser. When a ring lands around a bottle neck, the guest wins a bottle of wine to take home. Last year this was incredibly popular. Who wouldn’t want to win a bottle to take home?
