Each year the Leadership Midwest City class puts together a project that showcases local restaurants and hosts an evening of entertainment for the community.

The class “researches and explores needs” in the community, said Lauren Nichols, president of the Leadership class.

The event aims to raise money and familiarize the community with “what our city is made of,” said, Alyssa Loveless, program coordinator of Workforce Development for RSC and member of the Leadership Midwest City class.

This event is diverse and includes entertainment, a silent auction and a wine pull. Local restaurants offer some of their favorite dishes to be shared with the community, Nichols said.

“Our goal is to raise money to give back to our community,” Loveless said.

“Last year’s class raised $22,000; our goal is to raise $25,000 (this year),” Loveless said. “We have big shoes to fill.”

Taste of Midwest City is truly an event for everyone, Loveless said. “It’s a good way to get to know the community.”

The event will take place at 6 p.m. on April 13 at the Reed Center in Midwest City. The cost for entry is $20 prior to the event or $25 at the door. Tickets are available for purchase at the Tom Steed Community Learning Center, from Leadership Midwest City participants or at www.tasteofmidwestcity.com.
