Gourmet Sampler to feature new attractions

Committee adds auctions, raffle to raise more money for Special Olympics

(Continued)

“They enjoy competing and doing all these competitions,” Calhoun said. “At the same time, events like this make you realize the passion our community has for us.”

But of course, the main attraction for a lot of folks is the food.

Jan’s Cake and Candy Crafts, A Slice of Heaven Cakery and Montana Mike’s Steakhouse are among the 29 vendors at the Gourmet Sampler. Long said 30 restaurants initially signed up, but one dropped out this week because of health reasons.

Long said each restaurant comes ready to serve at least 800 patrons, giving people plenty of opportunities to devour their favorite food.

“You never leave hungry,” she said.

Advance tickets for the Gourmet Sampler cost $15 and can be purchased at Anderson Rent-All, Dan’s Music, Edgewater Woods, Moneyhun’s Fine Gifts and Furnishings, Seasons of the Heart, the Mounds Mall office or from a Gourmet Sampler Committee member. Tickets at the door are $18. Children between the ages of four and 10 can get in for $8, and those younger than three get free admission.
