"Museum hosts Gourmet Guys Saturday" by: Jessica Shepard

   The Matagorda County Museum hosts its annual “Gourmet Guys” fundraiser from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Bay City Civic Center.
   Happy Hour is from 6-7 p.m. with tasting to follow after.
   Tickets are $40 per person available in advance and at the door.
   This year’s theme is “A Taste Trip through South America.”
   “This year’s theme was chosen because we had never done South American before,” said Matagorda County Museum Director Barbara Smith.
   “The committee will pick next year’s theme and announce it Saturday night.”
   Smith added that this was the 15th year for the annual fundraiser.
   “However, this is the first time we’ve had it at the Civic Center,” she added.
   “It was decided to go to the Civic Center to allow more seating for our guests. Basically we had outgrown the museum, which is a good problem to have. We want our guests to be comfortable and to have a great time while they’re supporting the museum.”
   The event also features live and silent auction items.
   “I’m not sure if we will have desserts this year, but I’m willing to bet we will,” said Smith.
   “I still don’t know what will show up but it will definitely be delicious. We look forward to everyone coming out and enjoying their night sampling a variety of South American dishes.”
