Tickets now on sale for next week's Taste of Seguin
Posted on 6/12/2018 6:40:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- It's time to sample and vote for the best restaurant foods in town. Tickets are now on sale for the 8th Annual Taste of Seguin fundraiser hosted by the Seguin Silver Center. The event will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 19 at the Seguin Coliseum.

Executive Director Glenda Layton says over a dozen of Seguin's finest restaurants, caterers and other food preparers will be taking part in this friendly competition -- a competition in which the citizens get to be among the judges.

"Everyone gets to vote on the best appetizer, entree, soup or salad, side dishes, desserts and chips and salsa. So we are looking for great food and People's Choice judges as well as (the winners) the six actual judges that will judge on the other side," said Layton.

Layton says although it's a sampling of all foods, folks will want to come hungry.

"Everyone walks in and as they enter, they will put their name on their ticket so they'll be there to draw at the end of the night for extra fun stuff but also in the program, right inside the door, they'll get their ballot per say that will allow them to judge on their favorite entree and on their favorite salad and their favorite dessert so I recommend they go through the entire building, taste everything and then go back and do their vote or they can go in and get a second taste if they like," said Layton. "If we have 15 or 16 vendors with two items each, you've got 32 different things that you'll be sampling so you do need to go hungry. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Layton says she encourages everyone to buy their tickets now and support the local non-profit organization.

"Taste of Seguin is our number one fundraiser every year. It's our way of keeping our doors open and helping the citizens of Guadalupe County and notice that I dropped the words "senior citizens" because we work with everyone from first year birthday parties all the way to senior citizens. So we are a community asset," said Layton.

The event will also include live and silent auctions plus a Prada bag card raffle. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Tickets can be purchased early at the Silver Center located at 510 E. Court St.
