The eighth annual Taste of Goliad on Friday will benefit the Goliad Senior Citizens' building fund, the Ander Weser Volunteer Fire Department, the Goliad Education Foundation and of course, anyone who's hungry.
The Astron Club sponsors the event, which is co-chaired by Debby Brumby and Katye Monahan.
Brumby summarized what the Taste of Goliad is all about: "You visit with your neighbors and eat way too much."
This year's theme is "Top Chefs of Goliad" and will feature dishes from the area's restaurants, as well as food from other organizations, like the Astron Club.
"You know, we consider the restaurants and the people who are cooking here to be top chefs," Brumby said.
The dishes will be judged, and awards will be given for the tastiest foods in certain categories. And the money raised will be given to the three local organizations, usually about $1,400 to $1,800 each, Brumby said.
Each year, the Taste of Goliad sells between 450 and 500 tickets, making it an event the community looks forward to each year.
"They have such a wonderful time, they stand in line to buy our tickets," Brumby said. "It is great fun in Goliad County."
