The formula for the Fifth Annual Ames Education Foundation’s TASTE for Education is a proven success: Local restaurants bring their signature dishes. Local musicians provide stellar entertainment. A cross-section of Ames residents whose common goal is supporting education mingle and cast their bid for unique and exotic silent auction items. Last year, the  event raised $51,000 to support Foundation programs as well as education program needs such as school supplies, teacher mini-grants, leveled readers, and band and choir uniforms and equipment.  

The 2016 TASTE for Education event is 5-9 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 25. It’s an evening for folks 21 years and older. Local Restaurants and food providers will  showcase tastings of their cuisine. Entertainment will be offered by Jazz Funk Band. Highlights of the evening include Unveiling of the Dessert, and a Silent  and Live Auction.

Tickets are $50 and are available online, please click the TASTE link below. All ticket sales are final.

Tickets are also available at the Ames High School main office and Chocolaterie Stam in Ames, 230 Main St., or call the Foundation at 515/268-6630. For your planning purposes, there are 10 seats to a table. The event is reserved seating. Please wear business casual attire.

The Ames Education Foundation  provides financial support for innovative educational projects not ordinarily provided through the Ames Community District’s operating budget.
