UNITED WAY OF WILLIAMSON COUNTY
United Way of Williamson County announced this past week that Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson will serve as Honorary Chair for this year’s Taste of Williamson, presented by Nissan and sponsored by CoolSprings Galleria.
“I’m honored to be part of this year’s Taste of Williamson,” Anderson said. “This is one of our community’s most anticipated events, and it’s a vital resource supporting our nonprofit community and the individuals they serve.”
Taste of Williamson is an annual restaurant, caterer and food purveyor expo featuring samples of the area’s best food and
beverages. The event, now in its 17th year, raises money for United Way of Williamson County-funded programs aimed at improving lives and strengthening communities by focusing on advancing health, accelerating education, and expanding financial stability.
Nissan and CoolSprings Galleria both continue their longstanding support of the event, with Nissan returning as Presenting Sponsor and CoolSprings Galleria returning as Sponsor and Host.
“United Way brings together many community partnerships that provide help and solutions to enrich people’s lives,” said Vicki Smith, Nissan senior manager of Corporate Social Responsibility. “Our employee volunteers are always happy to support this event, which provides valuable support for the United Way and its partner agencies.”
“CoolSprings Galleria is proud to partner with United Way to host the Taste of Williamson for the 17th consecutive year,” said Albert Samuels, Marketing Director at CoolSprings Galleria. “It’s exciting to see so many of our local businesses work together for such an amazing cause.”
Ticket holders to this sampling event, which will be held from 7-9 p.m. March 3 at CoolSprings Galleria, will have the opportunity to meet chefs, sip a favorite beverage, taste local restaurant offerings, and enjoy musical entertainment as they stroll from station to station. Guests will enjoy everything from appetizers and entrees to unique cocktails and delicious desserts from returning restaurants and several new ones, with up to 40 restaurants expected to participate.
Tickets cost $35 in advance or $40 at the door and are available for purchase at United Way of Williamson County and its partner agencies, guest services at CoolSprings Galleria, or online.
Net proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the selling agencies and help support each program’s mission to serve the community.
March 4 – 9 is Restaurant Week, during which participating restaurants from the event will offer Taste of Williamson ticket holders 10 percent off purchases (excluding alcohol, tax, and gratuity). Caterers will give a 10 percent discount on box lunches ordered during Restaurant Week and used within 30 days. To receive these discounts, ticket holders can just present their ticket stubs from the event.
