FIESTA On-the-Go puts the focus on supporting local businesses.
Usually the FIESTA Margarita competition is a must attend summer bash which brings over 700 people together to celebrate summer, sip margaritas and award trophies to the winners. This year with restrictions on large gatherings and the restaurant industry reeling from the shutdown the Club opted for something much different.
The FIESTA On-the-Go shifts the event venue to local restaurants and stretches the event from one night, to the months of July & August. The Club is compiling coupon offers from local restaurants which it will compile into a Fiesta Package Book. FIESTA goes can purchase a package which includes the coupon book, event t-shirt, raffle tickets and ballots to vote for their favorites!
“There is no charge for restaurants to participate, we are truly looking for a way to support the local businesses who have always been there for the Clubs. The goal is to drive business to the restaurants while still celebrating FIESTA in a whole new way. The FIESTA is usually one of our biggest fundraisers bringing in over $50,000 for the Clubs, this will in no way replace that funding, but it is the right thing to do. We are a part of the community and this is a fun way to encourage everyone to support local businesses.” Stated Autumn Boyle-Robinson Club CEO.
The Club is also looking for local artists to design the event t-shirt. Email your original design to [email protected] by June 1st. Art must be margarita themed, artist must be 21+. Winner will win a FIESTA On-the-Go package and a Margarita basket.
FIESTA On-the-Go packages will be on sale starting late June. Restaurants and local businesses who want to participate should contact Autumn at [email protected]
