Margarita lovers got the chance to head to the inaugural Kern Margarita Championship Saturday evening.
The event was hosted by local nonprofit The Josh Farler Foundation, and was a chance for Kern residents to enjoy live music, great food and a featured margarita tasting- all to support local cancer patients.
“It’s a fundraiser for local cancer patients to help with food, transportation, and housing for them while they’re traveling for treatment,” said the championship’s co-chair Michelle Avila. “It’s all through the Josh Farler Foundation, which is a local nonprofit, all volunteer based. I’m a volunteer tonight, helping put on this event.”
Competitors included those from Sonder, La Costa, BLVD and La Mina. 17’s Nick James emceed the event.
