Argyle Taste for Good Event Proves a Hit Again


Just like the inaugural Argyle Chamber of Commerce Taste for Good event in 2014, this year’s proved at least, if not more, successful.

The second-annual Taste for Good, presented by First Choice Emergency Room, was held Sept. 8 at Lantana Country Club. For just $30, attendees enjoyed unlimited food and drink from area restaurants and vendors, blackjack, roulette, and craps casino games provided from Dallas-Fort Worth-based Deal Me in Casino, an outdoor cigar bar and bourbon tasting.

“We’re very, very happy. We got really good attendance,” said Gavin Fleten, the organization’s vice president of events and membership. “This time we had 19 food stations (compared to 15 in 2014) and then we had two wineries, two breweries, two distilleries, and cidering. We had great support from Deal Me in Casino. We had like seven or eight non-profits come in and everyone had a great time.”

Food ranged from tacos to sushi to finger sandwiches to pizza with plenty of dessert choices available. Many of the beers and wines tasted by attendees were made in Texas.

“The nice thing at 30 bucks, it’s a cheap date night and nobody gets nickel and dimed for silent auctions or raffles,” Fleten said. “You just come in, have a good time, and have fun. It was our second successful event and we’ll be back here again next year”

Between 250 and 275 people took part this year following an impressive 252 people last year. They helped raise $??? for each of member charities. Half of the proceeds go directly to those organizations.

“Our non-profit participants were again be available to share information about their projects and their needs so all those attending had the opportunity to see exactly where their money is going,” said Chamber executive director Margie Sullivan. “If they could tear themselves away from the casino tables.”

Other sponsors besides First Choice Emergency Room were Honda of Denton, Toyota of Denton, Sigma Signs and Printing, Point Bank, Sam Pack’s Five-Star Ford, Bill Utter Ford, Flower Mound Emergency Center, the Cross Timbers Gazette and Murray Media Group.
