The Pine Bluff Regional Chamber of Commerce will hold a Pot of Gold Draw Down fundraiser allowing participants a chance to win $5,000 or other prizes at the Taste of Southeast Arkansas Friday, Sept. 7.


Participants don’t have to be present to win. Second chance opportunities will be offered at the event, according to a news release.


Only 100 advance tickets will be sold for $100 each for the Pot of Gold Draw Down (which will draw down to three finalists.)


“Then, as an added twist, during the event, we will offer second chance tickets ($20) and one lucky person will be drawn from these to join the finalists. Finally, we will live auction the fifth and final spot that night to complete the five finalists,” according to the news release.


The Taste of Southeast Arkansas will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, at the Pine Bluff Country Club.


The event features samples of cuisine prepared by chefs from the region and surrounding areas.


The Taste of Southeast Arkansas is a fundraiser for the Jefferson County Young Professionals Network, a program of the Pine Bluff Chamber. Tickets are $50 each.
