Food, wine tasting planned for Argyle fundraiser

taste for good

The Argyle Chamber of Commerce puts on the Taste for Good event, which doubles as a fundraiser for some area nonprofits. The first Taste for Good was held last year and brought in 252 people.

“It’s a very, very good date night,” said Gavin Fleten, of the Argyle Chamber.

“Tasting events seem to be quite successful but often they’re only for one nonprofit, and then they have raffles and silent auctions and you might leave feeling like you lost your shirt,” he said.

Participants will be able to taste food at 20 stations from places including Kroger, Prime Farm to Table, Costco, Yellow Rose Steakhouse and Rockfish Grill.

Also, breweries, wineries and distilleries will be there for tasters to sample their wares. Those include Traveler Beer Company and Angry Orchard cidery.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 8, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at Lantana Golf Club. ¬†Tickets cost $30 and include food and drink sampling, cigars and bourbon outside the club and a chance to play craps, blackjack and roulette. Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber’s website.

One-half of the funds earned by the event will be given to nonprofits who participate in the event. Information booths will be stationed at the tasting. Last year, each particiating nonprofit earned $538, Fleten said.

“We just want people to come and have a good time for a good cause,” Fleten said.

Only 300 tickets are being sold and the dress is casual.
