Once again this spring the Sturbridge Optimist Club will be sponsoring their annual Cinco de Mayo Margarita Fest. This year our event will be held on Friday, May 4 in the upper function room at Admiral TJ O’Brien’s, 407 Main Street in Sturbridge, from 7-9 PM.
As in past years we will be inviting the area’s premier mixologists to come in and “strut their stuff”, presenting their best margarita recipes, and allowing you to be the judge as to who will be crowned as making the area’s best margarita in 2012, at the end of the evening.
In these continuing difficult economic times, our Margarita Fest allows attendees a night out on the town for a mere $25 donation, per ticket. Your small donation allows you: access to the event, two hours of incredible tasting, and the right to cast one vote for your favorite margarita served that evening. Where else can you go out for an evening of such community fun; especially when it is all for a great cause – the youth programs of our community? And, don’t forget the complimentary great food from TJ’s kitchen and the raffles!!
This year the Optimist Club continued the annual child ID program, begun in 2009, at the new elementary school. We again offered cash scholarships to students from community schools who participated in our essay contests. Once again we awarded thousands of dollars in our granting program, to worthy youth groups and teams in the local community. The Optimist Club is run by business and educational leaders of the community, all of whom donate their time and efforts, enabling 100% of all monies raised to be returned to various youth programs in our community. New members are always welcome!
Tickets for this year’s Cinco de Mayo Margarita Fest can be obtained by calling 508-347-9511. Tickets can also be picked up at the offices of Northeast Merchant Systems located at 24 New Boston Road, Sturbridge (Just off Rte 20, next to Hairport)
Please help us continue the tradition that began with the start-up of our club. Support the youth programs of our local community through the Optimist Club’s Margarita Fest!!
