Loosen up your belts and prepare for some great cuisine prepared by our local culinary masters! To try some of the “great tastes” in town, make plans to attend the Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce Annual “Taste of the Town” and Auction on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at Nessler Center, 2010 5th Avenue N., Texas City.
Approximately 800 guests are expected to satisfy their appetites. A lot of tempting treats will be available for everyone to sample. Ticket holders will be able to sample a variety of foods from Bake Me a Dream, Benitos’ Mexican
Restaurant, Brownie Big Jaws, Carnes Banquet Room, Casa Ole, Clary’s Restaurant, Grand Prize BBQ, Gulf Greyhound Park, Joe’s BBQ, Kroger, Lazy Lizard Cantina & Restaurant, Mainland Medical Center, Robco Catering, Robinette Catering, Ryan’s Steak House, Schlotzsky’s, and Starbucks. There will be a lot of beverages from Del Papa Distributing, Dienst Distributing, Coca Cola Bottling Company and Sparkletts.
“Taste of the Town” advance tickets are $15.00 each and $20.00 each at the door and children (under 12) $7.50. The ticket entitles you to all you can eat and drink at the booths and entry/participation in the live and silent auctions and a chance to win a fabulous door prize. You can purchase tickets at the Chamber office or at Texas First Bank in Texas City . The Auction takes place immediately after the “Taste of the Town”.
We will also have an I-Pad Raffle. Purchase your raffle tickets for $5 each or 5 tickets for $20.00. Write your name and phone number on the tickets and drop in the box located by the Silent Auction tables. The Winner will be announced during the Live Auction at 9:00 p.m. Good Luck! Sponsored by TNT Signs & Graphics.
We urge you to bring your checkbooks, cash and credit cards and get ready to bid at the Auction! The Live Auction is very exciting and entertaining and goes pretty fast. The only requirements to participate in the Live Auction are to have an Auction Number for bidding and the ability to pay for the item. The Auctioneer will describe and explain each item. The Auctioneer will also display auction items. All items must be picked up and paid for at the end of the evening.
The Silent Auction is very popular because everyone is able to get in on the action. Silent bids are written down on the bid sheet, which is placed by the displayed item. The high bidder and winner of that item can pick up their merchandise after all Silent Auction biddings close at 9:00 p.m. This is a lot of fun and everyone enjoys going looking at the items on display to see what is being offered. There is something for everyone!
