Taste of Las Cruces

Taste of Las Cruces is an annual event conducted by the Rotary Club of Las Cruces and the other two Las Cruces Rotary Clubs (the Rio Grande Rotary Club and the Mesilla Valley Rotary Club) to raise funds to meet community needs. Taste of Las Cruces offers attendees a chance to sample the wares of a number of local restauranteurs in one location, while contributing to local causes. 

The 2014 event was held at the Las Cruces Convention Center on Thursday, June 4, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; over three hundred attended.  Beneficiary of this year's event was the Roadrunner Food Bank.  Funds (the final count is not yet in) were raised through ticket sales, a silent auction, and a live auction.  Rotarians Vic Villalobos and Ken Binkley again served as masters of ceremonies, and American Classified (Vic's business) again supported the printing needs of the effort with posters and tickets.  (Thanks, Vic!) 

Local restaurants participated by preparing and serving excellent food to be sampled by attendees; Taste of Las Cruces participating restaurants make possible our support of worthy causes.  We salute and thank the participating restaurants listed below.
