Taste of the Town to raise funds for teacher grants
By Will Wright
Education will be on the menu at the revival of the Taste of the Town celebration, which is 6:30-8:30 p.m. TUesday at McKenna Events Center«
The event, sponsored for years by McKenna Foundation, now belongs to New Braunfels Independent School District’s Education Foundation, which is hoping a big night will benefit its teacher grant program and fund other educational projects.
"We hope to bring in $25,000, if not more,” foundation member i iekii Aleman said. “The big thing for us is being able to give for teachers and teacher grants because a lot of districts are seeing their state funding cut.
“We just want to be able to give back to our teachers and our district."
Culinary delights from two dozen New Braunfels restaurants — along with spirits from beer and wine distributors — will be featured, with entertainment provided by The Silver Sounds and The Harleys encompassing musical genres from the 1930s to the’80s.
Among the raffle items will be Southwest Airlines tickets, a stay in a rental home in Des-dn, Ha, two one-night stays at the St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio, tickets to a Round Rock Express minor-league baseball game, and a catered dinner by some of New Braunfels celebrity men.
McKenna sponsored the Taste as a benefit for New Braunfels Childrens Museum
