The Germantown Kiwanis started this event two years ago to promote their project to construct the Gehl Foods Performing Arts Pavillion in Firemen’s Park. All proceeds from Taste of Germantown will go toward the building of the Pavillion. Germantown supporters are invited to review the information on the Pavillion and see the rendering of what it will look like. Information about donating to this worthwhile project will be available.
New for this year, Kiwanis will be raffling off special gift cards for restaurants throughout the area. The raffle will be $5 per ticket, 3 for $10, for a chance to win gift cards for area restaurants.
The entire Taste of Germantown event is backed by U.S. Bank, a partner with the Kiwanis Club in promoting the Gehl Performing Arts Pavillion for the second year now.
