Taste of Etowah:  love-love and a homerun

On October 14, Etowah held a food festival in the new gym as a fundraiser for the school’s tennis and softball teams. The event’s twenty-dollar admission price included twenty food tickets. People could use those tickets to purchase food from different vendors. The money raised goes to the Eagles’ softball and tennis teams.

“There’s nothing to dislike because it’s a great event that raises money for our Eagles,” Gabby Sadowski, freshman, said.

Nearly twenty restaurants from around Towne Lake and Woodstock catered the event. From J. Christopher’s to Chili’s to Izumi, the event offered a wide variety of choices.  Favorites seemed to be Hacienda Vieja and Kani House.

“It’s a pretty good social time to help raise money for the sports, like softball and tennis,” Skylar Wallace, junior, said.

The event did well financially, and many restaurants ran out of food nearly an hour before the event ended. However, most people had plenty to eat, and the community seemed to enjoy the event.

“I like it. It was a quick experience of all the restaurants and makes people want to go to all the restaurants,” Jalin Quick, freshman, said.
