Benevilla has announced that it is a recipient of $4000 from the Surprise Rotary Club, a portion of the proceeds from the club’s Second Annual Taste of Surprise event held March 11, 2015.

Over 600 people attended the event, paying $25 for a chance to sample cuisine from local restaurants including that of Benevilla’s own Birt’s Bistro.

“Thanks to the Surprise Rotary for their community involvement and support of nonprofits like Benevilla,” said Birt’s Bistro Sr. Director of Food & Beverage Jeff Amperse, who has participated in this event since its inception. “This year’s event was a lot of fun. The food was great and so was the entertainment.”

The event featured samples from local restaurants, including Benevilla’s own Birt’s Bistro, West End Bar & Grill, Las Fuentes Mexican Grill & Bar, Booty’s Wings and Burgers, New York Pizza Department, The Captain’s Galley at Riverboat Bingo, Anacapa Restaurant, The Tree of Oil, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Yogurtini, Rita’s, The Links Neighborhood Grill, and Pepsi products.

A beer garden featuring samples of Crescent Crown’s Craft Beer and Golden Eagle Distributing wine tasting added to the festivities.

Event proceeds benefit Benevilla, The Surprise Rotary Club and Foundation, A New Leaf Foundation, and Homeless Youth Connection.
