Florida Feast 2017

The annual Florida Feast fundraiser is kicking off on October 19th this year, sponsored by the Marion County Roadbuilders Association. The event will be held at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion. Gates will open at 5:30pm for appetizers by Mojo's and beverages, as well as the opening of the silent auction and raffles.  Dinner will be served from 6:00pm until 8:00pm. The menu will be your favorite BBQ items, plus authentic Florida fare including frog legs, venison, gator tail, fried turkey, smoked pork, chicken, and fish, with all the favorite side dishes (corn on the cob, seasoned green beans, BBQ beans) drinks and dessert. During the event there will be live music and a chance to mingle with friends. Don’t miss the wonderful silent auction and raffle items, where great deals will be had by all!  The event is casual dress - a great chance to wear your favorite jeans and cowboy boots.

PLEASE NOTE - this event has become so popular that purchases must be made in advance and will not be available at the gate. Tickets also sold out very early last year, so please reserve your your tickets now!  Also new, the event is primarily sponsored tables only, with either half or whole table sponsorships.  A full table is $500 for 10 tickets, with your own reserved, advertised table.  Half tables are available for $250, with 5 tickets (also advertised).  Interfaith will be sponsoring "Friends of Interfaith" tables for those that want to do individual tickets only, at a cost of $50 each.
