The event will include sampling of American, French, Greek and Italian cuisine, as well as exquisite desserts and wine tasting. A dozen restaurants have signed on to provide their signature entrees with their own creative twists in hopes of being selected as “Best of Taste.” A dozen restaurants will provide signature entrees, appetizers and desserts. Local entertainment and a silent auction will also be available.
Tickets are $100 each or $150 per couple and are available at www.TasteofOcala.org. For information or sponsorship opportunities call the CF Foundation at 352-873-5808.
The first Taste of Ocala was held in 1989 and for several years the event was held at the Paddock Mall in Ocala. In 2007, the 50th anniversary of the college, the event moved across College Road to the Ocala Campus and became an outdoor event. The event moved inside with much success in 2012.
To date, in excess of $450,000 has been disbursed from Taste of Ocala events, providing students with the ability to attend the College of Central Florida.
