Chamber ready to serve up annual Taste

POSTED: February 27, 2014 8:21 p.m.

The Effingham Chamber of Commerce is setting the table for the annual Taste of Effingham, set for Thursday from 5-7 p.m. Chamber Director Rick Lott said that as of Feb.16, there were 14 booths signed up to provide food and beverage to the audience at the Effingham County Recreation and Parks gymnasium on Highway 119 in Springfield.

Among the restaurants, caterers and beverage providers signed up are: Chef Nick Mueller of the Laughing Boar, the Schnitzel Shack, Simply Catering, Gaffney’s Cheap Seats, El Real Mexican, Majestic Cupcakes, the Effingham College and Career Academy, The Vintage Bee, Muthers BBQ, Butterducks Winery, Morgan Farms Jellies, Coca-Cola and Miller Lite. Lott said restaurants can still sign up so they’re not left out of this marketing opportunity.

For one price, attendees will be able to sample treats from a room full of restaurants and caterers, enjoy a glass of wine, beer, Coke or water, and enjoy great Irish music while browsing the items for purchase in a silent auction. Lott said he’s working to put a “first-class” auction together and has weekend hotel packages for St. Simons Island, Atlanta’s Ritz Carlton, and Chattanooga  put together, along with a Riverstreet Riverboat Dinner Cruise, a  YMCA membership and more.

“This is one auction you won’t want to miss,” said Lott.  

Tickets are $15 or two for $25 and can be obtained at the Chamber offices, at any Heritage Bank of the South Branch, GeoVista Credit Union, The Coastal Bank, Teach Right, Effingham Herald, Certus Bank, the 4H office, Ms. Jeans, and Burns World Travel.

And to lend an Irish flavor to the evening, popular Irish singers Harry O’Donoghue and Carroll Brown will perform. This will be Effingham’s own little St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

If you are interested in having a food booth for the event, sign up and start deciding what kind of items you will want to present to the audience. Lott said the Chamber is hoping for a crowd of between 500 and 600.
