The “Taste of Lemont” is back! From 5-11 p.m. on Saturday, September 10, the Lemont High School Educational Foundation will host “Food for Thought: Taste of Lemont” near the Metra Lot in downtown Lemont. This fun, family-friendly event will feature live music and some of the best food and beverages the Lemont community can offer!
Tickets are on sale now and are $15 if purchased in advance ($20 in person at the door). Admission is free for ages 14 and under, and also free for Lemont High School students with a valid student ID.
The Taste of Lemont is the LHSEF’s most important annual fundraiser, and it again will be open to all ages. Parents, students, younger siblings, community members …. all are invited! The Taste of Lemont annually has drawn thousands of attendees for several years, making it one of the most anticipated community events of the year.
As with previous years, the format will be typical of a “Taste of…” event, with food tickets purchased on site and redeemed with the vendors. Each restaurant will have multiple affordable options on its menu.
Participating food and beverage vendors will be announced in advance of the event.
In addition to outstanding food and beverages, the Taste of Lemont will feature live music from Split Decision and Mike & Joe, as well as a “Split the Pot” fundraiser.
The Taste of Lemont will be a rain or shine event. Individuals who do not wish to purchase tickets online should call (630) 243-3280.
The LHSEF has awarded more than $500,000 in grants to aid Lemont High School’s students, faculty and staff since 2007, as well as more than $125,000 to help make the CITGO Innovation Academy a reality. A primary reason it has been able to provide that level of support is the success of the “Food for Thought” series.
Proceeds from “Food for Thought” benefit the LHSEF, whose mission is to partner with the community to make lasting improvements to Lemont High School that will enhance the total educational experience for all of its students. The Foundation funds and supports programs and opportunities that aid students’ growth, both academically and as citizens of the Lemont community. The Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization. All gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent provided by the law.
