'Taste of Gogebic Range' Returns!

The Gogebic Community College Foundation is hosting the 7th annual 'Taste of the Gogebic Range' on Monday, April 25, 2016 in the David G. Lindquist Student Center. This event features samplings and offerings of food and beverages from area restaurants, businesses and caterers. Samples include soups, salads, appetizers, entrees, sandwiches, beverages and desserts.

"If you have attended The Taste before, you know you are guaranteed an evening of eating delights. If you haven't yet attended, you should! This year we are excited to offer many excellent door prizes in addition to the best food sampling event in our area," said Kelly Marczak, Gogebic Community College Foundation Director. "You have a chance to go home with a new favorite selection from an area business, and the opportunity to win a door prize ranging from a dinner certificate all the way up to a weekend stay at a local lodge!"

A social hour will be offered from 5 - 6 p.m., with the 'Taste' available from 6 - 8 p.m. Coffee and punch will be available free of charge, beer and wine will be available for purchase to complement the food offerings.

There will be two contests going on during the event. The 'Tasters' Choice Award' will be voted on by the attendees, and the 'Best of Show Award' will be decided by special judges. Booths will be judged on overall display, presentation of food samples, and taste. Special awards and bragging rights are awarded to the winners!

Tickets are limited and are by advance purchase only at a cost of $20 per person. There will be no ticket sales at the door. Contact the GCC Foundation Office at (906) 932-4231, ext. 201, to reserve your tickets today.
