Taste Of Victory Tailgate Still In Search For Local Chefs

WAYNE – As the Wayne High home football schedule approaches so does a joint project with Wayne Area Economic Development (WAED) and Wayne Community Schools Foundation.

According to a release from WAED, the Sixth annual Taste of Victory Tailgate is scheduled for Friday, September 20 at Bob Cunningham Field on the campus of Wayne State College. Wayne High will be hosting Columbus Lakeview at 7 p.m.

The tailgate is open to the public with paid admission to the game. The game will also feature parents night for girls golf and cross country as well as the dance team and Pride of Blue Devil marching band performing.

Local ‘chefs’ will vie for honors as the favorite tailgate chef. There is room for up to 7 chefs/teams, professional or amateur, under the tent. Participants can do this as an individual or have a business sponsor. Themed décor and costumes may or may not influence the sampling crowd, but they do make for a fun atmosphere.

Each chef/team will need to provide sample sized portions to feed approximately 100 people. The only rule is to have fun raising money for the Wayne Community Schools Foundation.

The public will vote with their dollars and the chef raising the most money will be awarded a $50 Chamber Bucks prize. All funds raised will go towards the WCS Foundation as last year the Taste of Victory Tailgate raised over $1,385 by seven chef teams feeding about 200 tailgaters.

Those interested in participating need to contact the WAED office at 402-375-2240 ASAP or if you have any questions.
