Taste of Nona to bring ‘Diamonds and Denim’

Diamonds and denim will shine together during the Taste of Nona on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the outdoor parking lot behind Boxi Park, 6877 Tavistock Lakes Blvd., in Lake Nona Town Center.

This event will benefit Nemours Children’s Health Fund with all the proceeds from a silent auction featuring specialty items and gifts from the community businesses.

The Lake Nona Regional Chamber of Commerce (LNRCC) announced this seventh Taste of Nona with title sponsor Shamrock Auto Body & Service, of St. Cloud, will feature a fun and glitzy theme of “Diamonds & Denim.”

Chairperson of the event, Brandy Bennett, of local business Creative Printing PGM, stated the “Diamonds & Denim” theme promises everyone the opportunity to dress comfortably with some bling.

“This year we will present our more than 35 participating restaurants and food vendors in an outdoor venue filled with tents, a music stage, two bars along with all the other amenities,” she said. “We are also partnering with the Tavistock Restaurant Collection who will supply bar services and bring two of their restaurants, Chroma Modern Bar & Kitchen and Canvas Restaurant & Market.”

Don Long, Lake Nona chamber president/CEO, explained that an increased amount of space for the event has allowed for the Chamber to provide both VIP and standard admissions levels.

“VIP attendees, limited to the first two hundred ticket purchasers, will enjoy an initial hour of exclusive access to the entire venue along with a VIP exclusive area and cash bar throughout the event,” he said.

He added that VIP entry will start at 5 p.m., followed by general admissions at 6 p.m., and musical headliner group “Slickwood” will perform music to match the occasion from 5 to 8 p.m.

The chamber is providing tickets with discount pre-event pricing at www.lakenonacc.org or by calling the chamber office. Interested attendees can also find the list of expected food vendors and more information by visiting the website.
