Attention FOODIES! We are only weeks away from the most looked forward to event of the year, Taste! Central Florida! This event is honestly my favorite event EVER, and I’ll tell you why!
Imagine arriving at Orlando World Center Marriott, where Central Florida’s most celebrated chefs and beverage purveyors gather to serve up support for the annual Taste! Central Florida and raise funds for childhood hunger relief in the community!
This non-profit event help Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida fund childhood feeding programs and services locally. So if you plan to attend, take this advice from a Taste! veteran!
Here are my tips if you plan to attend Taste! Central Florida
1 . Wear clothes that can “stretch”
… if you know what I mean. I can not emphasize enough how much food there is! Think Thanksgiving. You. Will. Be. Full.
2. Wear comfy shoes.
Yes, this is a semi-formal/cocktail attaire event. So you will want to dress in your LBD. But trust me. The venue is HUGE, and your feet will ache at the end of the night. Maybe tuck a pair of ballet flats in your purse.
3. Plan to bid!
In addition to enjoying unlimited sips and samples, guests at Taste! Central Florida can also participate in a mobile silent auction featuring signed memorabilia, stays at upscale hotels, dining experiences, and exotic adventures and getaways.
The Giving Tree raffle, sponsored by Edible Orlando, is also back inviting guests to win a taste of Orlando’s most popular establishments. For a $50 donation, guests can select an envelope hanging from a towering tree containing a concealed gift certificate ranging from $25 to $300 in value.
4. Practice your RING TOSS!
The event’s ever-popular Instant Wine Cellar game offers participants a chance to win more than 150 bottles of wine valued at more than $2,500. There are only 300 chances to win this exquisite wine collection. Each key is a $25 donation.
Guests can also win fine bottles of wine with the Ring Toss for Wine fundraiser. Rings are available for purchase to toss onto wine bottles ─ 3 tosses for $15. When a ring lands around a bottle neck, the guest wins a bottle of wine.
YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT! It too will become an annual favorite, I promise!
