Those who attend the annual Taste of Radcliff event Dec. 9 at Colvin Comm­unity Center will experience the community’s culinary offerings while giving back.

Hosted by the Radcliff Woman’s Club, the event features samples from 25 local restaurants, ranging from barbecue to Italian to Chinese selections. Attendees also can enjoy stuffed shells provided by club chairwoman Maria Batistoni.

Taking place from 6 to 8 p.m., the event also includes silent and live auctions, live entertainment and complimentary gift bags. Attendees also can enjoy the Colvin Community Center’s Festival of Trees, a display of Christmas trees donated by local businesses and organizations.

Club president Julie Aldridge said the event now is in its 12th year. She said over the years, the event has become a popular time for fellowship.

“We find a lot of people who have been in Radcliff for years and years enjoy this event because they get to visit with people they haven’t seen through the year,” she said.

Proceeds go toward Radcliff Woman’s Club missions, including scholarships awards for local youth and donations for local nonprofits. The event is one of two major fundraisers for the club, the other being the annual Christmas in July event.

Students from the Bluegrass Challenge Academy, North Hardin High School and Faith Homeschool Group will be present to volunteer.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from a club member or from Colvin Comm­unity Center, which is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. There are about 50 tickets left, according to Batistoni.

“It’s a fun time,” she said.
