The Frankie Valente Scholarship Foundation organized an event that brought food and community together to support EMT students. With over 20 local food vendors from the Clermont area, including Lake County, Winter Garden, Groveland, and Minneola communities, the event surpassed all expectations.
Beyond being a delectable culinary affair, the event held a more significant purpose—supporting the education and dreams of future Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics.
Attendees had the opportunity to contribute to this noble cause, by contributing to the Foundation's efforts to sponsor students. Knowing that the Foundation provides essential resources for their journey in emergency medical services.
The inaugural year saw an overwhelming turnout, a testament to the event's success and community engagement. Through the collective efforts of attendees, the event successfully achieved three full scholarships for aspiring EMTs.
The heart of the Taste of Clermont event beat with the passion of the Frankie Valente Scholarship Foundation, dedicated to supporting the educational aspirations of future EMTs. The event's accessibility was ensured with two ticket options, catering to different preferences—a $10 "standard tasting" card and a $20 VIP "unlimited samples" card.
Additionally, attendees had the chance to contribute through postcards for direct online donations and the exciting donation wheel. All proceeds from ticket sales and donations bolstered the fundraising efforts, making a significant impact.
The event was fun and high energy, with people showing up from the neighboring community.
Beyond the culinary delights and charitable cause, the Taste of Clermont event offered attendees additional excitement through raffle draws and vendor discounts. The raffles added an element of anticipation and fun, as attendees eagerly participated for a chance to win fantastic prizes.
The Taste of Clermont event will be remembered as a remarkable celebration of local cuisine, community spirit, and the unwavering dedication of the Frankie Valente Scholarship Foundation.
