Central Florida Rum and Food Experience 2015
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Saturday, January 24th in Lakeland Yolo Rum attended the birth of “Central Florida’s Rum and Food Experience” event held by the Kiwanis Club as a fundraiser for their charity. The event was held at The Lakeland Center in Sikes Hall in downtown Lakeland. As we all know, first year events of this size and nature can be daunting, but the Kiwanis nailed it with over 600 attendees. The room had a nice flow of booths containing by our guess, 30-40 different rums and a tasty group of food vendors. At 3:00pm as scheduled the lights dimmed, the band (Munn Park Saints) started, and the doors opened to streams of people coming in to soak up the good times. What a great vibe and great group of people! Yolo Rum’s own Eric Swanson and the lovely Susan Webb served samples of our award winning Yolo Gold & Yolo Silver rums along with samples of the signature “Yolo Yummy” that were well received by all. (And well received several times by some through out the night I might add~) Around 7:00pm a wonderful afternoon of rum, food and friends ended to a roar of chatter about “next year”. Yolo Rum would be proud to be a part of the Rum and Food Experience in 2016!
A big THANK YOU to Matthew Cantrall and all the great folks and volunteers involved at Kiwanis who help put on this amazing event helping people remember… You Only Live Once!
