Georgetown ISD’s Education Foundation is planning its first-ever 50 Fellas Foodfest for its fall fundraiser.
The event is just for adults, sponsored in part by H-E-B and takes place October 22 6-8:30pm at the Georgetown Municipal Airport GTU Jet Hangar.
Manly teams of two “chefs” each registered from government, business and individual schools. VIP chefs include Mayor Dale Ross, Superintendent Dr. Fred Brent, Police Chief Wayne Nero, City Manager David Morgan and more, will showcase their culinary talent with appetizers, entrées, and desserts.
Event organizer Greg Bowden is pleased to report they have signed up more than 25 teams and, “Just via word of mouth, everyone jumped at the chance to share our vision, participate and support the Foundation.”
Team dishes will be judged by guests based on their flavor, creativity and how memorable they are. The best appetizer, entrée and dessert will be chosen by popular vote and awarded a trophy—and bragging rights.
Bowden says, “We have Roland Waits as entertainment and we expect at least 300 attendees who will enjoy a huge variety of flavors.”
Every dollar raised goes to support programs at GISD and tickets are still available for purchase at GISDedfound.org ($45).
