Kosciusko Co. restaurants battle in Appetizer Wars charity competition
WINONA LAKE, Ind. — It was a battle of the taste buds Tuesday night in Winona Lake.
Appetizer Wars attracted more than 200 people to taste food from 11 local restaurants. Students who are part of a Grace College business course organized the event.
Attendees paid $10 to get in the door, then “voted” with cash for their favorite appetizer.
All proceeds went to locally-based LifeTouch Ministries, a non-profit counseling center that specializes in serving low-income individuals.
“LifeTouch is unique in that we never turn anybody away due to lack of being able to pay for counseling,” Jeff France, LifeTouch executive director, said.
Appetizer Wars was held at Westminster Hall on the Grace College campus, and functioned as the grand finale final project for the participating students.
