DDRA preparing for Taste of Darlington
The Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association is looking for grillers, cooks, table hosts and sponsors for the biggest social gathering in Darlington, the annual Taste of Darlington. The Taste is scheduled from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, April 11, in the garage area at Darlington Raceway.
You can participate in one of four ways:
Griller: Fire up your grill or fryer and cook your favorite meaty recipe. Past dishes have included Boston butt BBQ, beer-can chicken, fried oysters, shrimp and more.
Table Host: Gather a variety of sweet or savory dishes to decorate a large, round table with decadent desserts or finger foods. Previous hosts have put up fabulous floral displays, chocolate fountains, coffee bar, sushi platters, pasta and more.
Sponsor: Show your commitment to the community and get your business in front of new customers with your banner displayed throughout the event. Sponsors receive four tickets per $500 donated and their banner displayed at the event as well as recognition in press releases, ads and online. Top level sponsors ($1,000 level) will have their logos on all print ads and flyers.
Attend: Advance tickets are $30 per person, and you must be 21 or older to attend.
All business participants will be recognized in press releases and online when DDRA posts the menu. You may post your banner during the event and have promotional materials to distribute, and each griller/cook/host will receive a ticket to sample all the dishes (and drinks) on display.
This year’s event will fund the Improvement Incentive Grant Program among other community projects, such as beautification projects, networking breakfasts, business seminars and the Bringing Downtown Alive! Concert Series, among other things.
