Nearly a dozen local restaurants will showcase a collection of appetizers, entrees and desserts during the second annual Taste of Dawson High on Saturday.


The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the cafeteria at Dawson County High School. Admission is $5 per person, or a maximum of $20 for a family. Children under 5-years are free.


Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit the Parent Teacher Student Organization, which supports the school’s clubs and sports teams, as well as providing annual scholarships to deserving students.


“Last year, we were able to give a $250 scholarship, and this year we hope to give $500 out,” said organizer Karen Armstrong.


Funds will also support an account the school has established for students who need financial assistance with costs associated with school trips, club dues, prom expenses and parking passes, among others.


Last year’s event raised more than $2,000.


Clubs and donors have also supplied gift baskets to be auctioned during the event.


Armstrong said raffle prizes range from tickets to entertainment venues such as Dollywood and Zoo Atlanta, to dinner on the town, fine art and free house cleaning.
