    Where can you taste great food and give a helping hand to those in need? The answer can be found at the Third Annual “Taste of South Louisville” on Saturday, September 8th at Bellarmine University.

    Dan Johnson SLCM.jpg“This is such a fun event for our community” says Councilman Dan Johnson (D-21). “The South Louisville Community Ministries do important work for many people in need, and this is a major fundraising event for them.”

    With the great assistance of area restaurants and businesses, the “Taste of South Louisville” will offer an evening of fun, food and fellowship from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Bellarmine’s Frazier Hall.

    Rubbies, Jimbo’s BBQ, First String Grill and Pub, Thornberry’s Deli, Tuscany, Vietnam Kitchen, Shack in the Back BBQ, Flavor Catering, Havana Rumba, El Nopal, Chick Fil A, Sunergos, 7UP and Snapple, Pit Stop BBQ, and Valumarket are among those businesses participating in this year’s event.

    “The people of South Louisville already know what delicacies we have in our area,” says Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13). “Now, everyone will see that you can go many places in South Louisville to find great food.”

    “South Louisville Community Ministries has a great mission in our area and they need our help to continue their good work,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15).Taste of South Louisville small.jpg

    Joining Johnson, Welch and Butler as sponsors of the event are Council members Rick Blackwell (D-12), David James (D-6), David Yates (D-25) and President Jim King (D-10).

    "Once again our friends at Metro Council have given us their support. There seems to be a wonderful history of this, without which, we probably could not operate,” James Laemmle, Executive Director of the South Louisville Community Ministries. “Without help from these individuals, we would be in a struggle for survival, and for providing basic human services to the impoverished in the South End of Louisville".

    There will also be a silent auction during the event. Among the groups donating items are: University of Louisville Athletics’ department, Cincinnati Bengals, ESPN, Bellarmine University, Holiday World, Kentucky Derby Museum and Churchill Downs, Mega Cavern, Springhurst Tennis Club, The Louisville Bats, Noah’s Ark Winery, and many more. . .
