May 3, 2013 — If you love Mexican food and margaritas or helping out a local cause then get your ticket for the second annual Margarita Fest presented by the Soroptimist International of Susanville.
The event is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 10 at Jensen Hall at the Lassen County Fairgrounds.
There are a limited number of tickets available for purchase at Leslie’s Jewelry, Margie’s Book Nook and the UPS Store near Walmart. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.
Tickets include one specialty margarita or beer and the nacho bar.
According to Annette Silveria, Soroptimist vice president and event chair, the midori, Catalina, skinny and mango margaritas will be returning from last year’s event. New this year is the sangrita, watermelon jolly rancher, blood orange, and raspberry lemon and a cucumber margarita, which is described as very refreshing.
Drinks will be prepared by local business representatives who are sponsoring a table for the event. Sponsors include Billington Ace Hardware, U.S. Bank, Verizon Wireless, CruiseOne Vacations, Pregill Insurance, Pezzullo & Gussett, CPAs, Smith Properties, Susan River Realty, and Honey Lake Firearms.
Additional drink tickets can be purchased for beer or margaritas. To help people make their decision about what margarita they want, the Soroptimists will be offering a tasting punch card for sale, allowing people to sample one ounce from each specialty margarita table.
Silveria said there will be plenty of complimentary water and punch for those non-drinkers and designated drivers.
In another effort to promote responsible drinking, the Soroptimists have coordinated a discount on hotel rates at Super 8 and High Country Inn, which are located within walking distance of the event. If you are interested in making a reservation, both locations have Margarita Fest tickets to purchase as well.
Those who attend will find room to dance to the live music provided by “Timeless,” who performs classic rock, blues and country.
Local businesses have donated items for a silent auction, allowing guests the opportunity to bid and win a gift for Mother’s Day or something special for themselves. Merchants from Reno have also provided items.
Soroptimist is a non-profit service organization committed to bettering the lives of women and children in Lassen County and around the world through scholarships and educational awards each year, hosting teen and girls self-esteem programs, adopting five families in need during the Christmas Holiday and providing assistance to the Senior Center, Lassen Family Services and the Lassen High School S-Club.
Silveria said, “This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we have been working diligently at making it another event to remember. We are excited and we look forward to seeing everyone who attends.”
