Feast in a good cause at A Taste of Relay For Life

BROOKSVILLE — Hernando County foodies will have plenty of flavor to savor Saturday at the third-annual Taste of Relay For Life.

The event, sponsored by the Preceptor Delta Iota chapter of Beta Sigma Phi sorority in Brooksville, will be from 4 to 6 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 109 S Broad St., Brooksville.

Beverly Lewis, an event organizer, called the feast a "sweet deal" as well. A $5 donation entitles a participant to 10 "tastes," of dishes including entrees, appetizers, salads and deserts.

"It's a fun way for people to get involved in a very important cause in our community," Lewis said.

The event serves as kickoff fundraiser for the 2012 Brooksville Relay for Life, which will take place April 27 at Hernando High School. Relay proceeds will go to support services for cancer patients and their families in Hernando County.

So far, more than a dozen Hernando eateries, including Papa Joe's Italian Restaurant, Rookies Sports Bar, Mykonos II, Coney Island Drive Inn, Chef Audrey's Fresh Market Cafe, Luigi's Pizza, Mallie Kyla's Cafe and others have signed on to provide food and beverages.

In addition, Lewis and her fellow organizers have enlisted a number of celebrity chefs, including Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis, Brooksville Fire Chief Tim Mossgrove and Hernando Times columnist Dan Dewitt to share their own cooking talents.
