Only 46 tickets left!
As of mid-day Tuesday, Aug. 15, only 46 tickets for the Champagne Cruise and Mini-Taste of Port Aransas were left between the two sales locations.
The event will be Friday, Sept. 8, aboard the Scat Cat out of Fisherman's Wharf.
Tickets, at $35 per person, may be purchased at the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce-Tourist Bureau, 421 W. Cotter, where they had 40 left on Tuesday, or at the Family Center IGA courtesy booth, 418 S. Alister St., where they had six tickets left.
The evening of dining, dancing and cruising includes sampling island cuisine from virtually all of the restaurants in Port Aransas. Cruisers may also enjoy refreshments including wine, beer and champagne. Dancing under the stars will be to music provided by the duet of Eddie Olivarez Jr. on the saxophone and Vince Ginova on keyboard.
This annual event, for which tickets are tax deductible, is unique in that 100 percent of all services, food and drink are donated by the community and 100 percent of the proceeds are returned to
the community by the Rotary Club, event sponsor. Profits from the cruise benefit projects directed toward the youth of Port Aransas.
This year's cruise is again dedicated to the memory of Barbara Sheppard, one of its founders, former owner of Fisherman's Wharf and long-time member of the Port Aransas Rotary Club.
