Champagne cruise, mini-taste is 35 tickets short of selling out
Only 35 tickets are left for the Port Aransas Rotary Club's Champagne Cruise and Mini-Taste of Port Aransas.
"If you want tickets, you'd better come get them," said Rob Phillips at ValueBank Texas of Port Aransas where the tickets are being sold.
The fundraiser is set for Friday, Sept. 7, from 7:30 to 9:15 p.m., aboard the Scat Cat out of Fisherman 's Wharf. Tickets are $40 per person, which includes champagne, samples of island cuisine, dancing and cruising.
Out-of towners can mail a check for tickets, and when the check is received, tickets will be sent in the return mail.
"But we can't be responsible for the post office's delivery," Phillips said.
Virtually all of the restaurants in Port Aransas will participate by furnishing a "mini-taste" of their favorite dishes. Dancing under the stars Lovettwill be to music provided by the duet of Eddie Olivarez Jr. on saxophone and Vince Ginova on keyboard.
This annual event, which is tax deductible, is unique in that 100 percent of all services, as well as food and drink, are donated by the community and 100 percent of all proceeds are returned to the community by the Rotary Club. Youth-related activities in
Port Aransas sponsored by the Rotary Bar Club are targeted.
