Record Breaking Success for Taste of Summer

September 10, 2019

A big shout out and thank you to the participants and community that supported Taste of Summer Rancho Mirage 2019!

The restaurants are still buzzing over the traction and economic impact over the summer months provided by the Taste of Summer Rancho Mirage program. This five-week food fest put all eyes on Rancho Mirage and “Taste of” parties began to pop up all over the city. Area nonprofit organizations were able to fundraise and rally their boards, staff and donors to help partake in the festivities by selling wristbands.

Programs like Taste of Summer Rancho Mirage prove the power of a community which works together. These events are great fun for the residents and visitors here in the summer, and they also mean jobs and critical services offered throughout the desert by our incredible charities.

Taste of Summer Rancho Mirage by the numbers:

  • 750 attendees at the Kick-Off Party at PIRCH, 30 restaurants, 20 nonprofits, over 100 deals and specials offered at $4.
  • $20,000 raised, 3,800 wristbands, and about 5,000 appetizers, more than 2,000 drinks and 1,000 desserts served!
  • 20 Media Sponsors: Over 1,000 radio commercials, 150 TV commercials, 1 roaming billboard, 54,000 page views on the website and more!

We could not do it without the Title Sponsorship and support of the City of Rancho Mirage.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, Ambassadors and Staff,

Thank you for making the 2019 event a outstanding opportunity for everyone!

Your chamber is the choice and champion for Rancho Mirage businesses.
