Go for Gumbo – March 19

Gulf Breeze Rotary sponsors 11th annual fundraiser for college scholarships

If you have a hankering for gumbo and want to help send local students to college, come on out to Shoreline Park in Gulf Breeze from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 19 for the 11th annual Gulf Breeze Rotary Gumbo Cook-Off.

Featuring live music and a silent auction, the popular annual event offers all-you-can-eat gumbo for $10 in advance, $15 day of the event. Advance tickets are available at Techworx – 3041 Gulf Breeze Pkwy; Gulf Coast Community Banks – all locations; Pensacola Little Theater Box Office; and members of the Gulf Breeze Rotary Club.

More than 20 chefs – both professional and amateur – will serve up their special gumbo recipes and vie for Best Gumbo and People’s Choice awards. Burgers, beer, wine, and sodas will be available for purchase to help wash down the spicy fare. Children under the age of 8 can attend for free when accompanied by paying adults.

The Gumbo Cook Off will take place at the Gulf Breeze Shoreline Park between the recreation center and the baseball fields so follow your nose to this exciting event and enjoy delicious food for a worthy cause.

Gulf Breeze Rotary has provided more than $600,000 in scholarships to local high school seniors.
