The annual Taste event benefitting Esophageal Cancer at Florida Hospital is moving to I-Drive 360 this year. And tickets include a ride on the Coca-Cola Eye. Don’t worry, it doesn’t spin around that fast so you don’t have to be concerned about what you eat before you get on.
And there should be plenty to eat. There will be food from eight restaurants, including our friends at Tapa Toro. See below for a full list.
Taste at I-Drive 360 will be Sunday, April 2, from 2 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $45 for adults, $25 for kids and $35 for first responders and are available at this link. (And first responder doesn’t have anything to do with how fast you click that link, so don’t even think about it.) Parking is complimentary. I-Drive 360 is at 8445 International Drive, Orlando.
The fundraiser is spearheaded by Pam Sain, who lost her father to the disease. Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the United States. Acid reflux can lead to pre-cancerous Barrett’s esophagus which can be effectively treated to prevent esophageal cancer. The earlier the diagnosis and onset of treatment, the greater chance you will have of beating this disease.
So come out, help raise money for a good cause, eat some good food and go for a spin on the Eye. It’ll be fun.
