The top 6 winners have been declared around the stop of the evening. Bistro on the Boulevard took very first spot, followed by Griffin’s Chophouse, RF’s Corner Grill, Juniper’s, Figaro, and Alodia’s. They will now form “team Lake Murray State” at the remaining round of the Earth Foodstuff Championships, which will be held in Texas this November.
Internet marketing vice president Jayne Baker mentioned it was superb to see so numerous company arrive out to support the fundraiser and take part in the voting.
“It was good to see folks so excited to be out,” she explained. “We set this on for the fireworks every yr. We just hope everyone carries on to assist it and appear out to aid us increase revenue. Without the need of the income, there would be no Lake Murray July Fourth fireworks.”
