Great food for a great cause!

Tickets are still available for the Taste of Arlington - Oct 21, 2014 event, which takes place for the 32nd time this year. The event is on Oct. 21, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Arlington Convention Center, 1200 Ballpark Way.

Regular general admission tickets cost $40, while VIP tickets cost $65. VIP seating is limited to 200 guests, so ticket availability is not guaranteed.

"The price includes all you can eat and drink and access to our private VIP reception throughout the event," according to a press release by VIP/tickets chairman Troy Stidham. "Nearly 80 of the area's restaurant and beverage vendors will be under one roof with samples of their famous or signature appetizers, entrees, desserts and over the top libations. And don’t forget the auction and live music and dancing."

Parking is $5 per car. Guests are asked to have cash ready to help ease the flow of traffic. Shuttles to the door are provided. The event ends at 9:30 p.m.

According to the event website, "This event benefits thousands of kids in our community; kids who need fun, educational arts programs and a safe place to stay after school; kids who need positive role models and a chance to learn and try new things; kids who look forward to meeting new friends at summer camp – whether it’s camp at the YMCA or Theatre Arlington. You will be helping at-risk kids who otherwise could not experience any of these opportunities."
