The PNC Roar on the River, a long-running Downriver event organized by the Trenton Rotary Club, has again partnered with Rodgers Chevrolet for this year’s event.
This year the Woodhaven auto dealership will sponsor both the “Taste of the Races” kickoff party plus a brand new event, “The Taste on the Terrace at the Chalet.”
The Taste of the Races, to be held on Friday, July 14, is the only outdoor taste-fest held Downriver. For $25 (or $200 for 10 tickets) hundreds are in attendance to enjoy the samplings of upwards of 35 local eateries and stay for an after party featuring the sounds of The Phoenix Theory, a highly regarded southeast Michigan-based band.
On Saturday, July 15, in Elizabeth Park’s newly remodeled banquet center, “Chateau on the River,” Rodgers Chevrolet will sponsor “The Taste on the Terrace at the Chalet.” Just prior to the fireworks in the air-conditioned Chateau, up to 200 VIP guests will dine at the buffet, enjoy cocktails and watch the fireworks front and center on the terrace.
Fifty Amp Fuse and The Toppermost Beatles will be entertaining before and after the fireworks show. Tickets are $25 each and are expected to sell out quickly.
Rodgers Chevrolet first partnered with the PNC Bank Roar on the River in 2012, and the boat that it sponsored was one of the big winners that year.
“We enjoy the races and love the fact that it contributes to the community as well,” said Joe Posby, the dealership’s general manager. “Our entire crew looks forward to it every year.”
Trenton Rotary and PNC are proudly hosting what is believed to be the longest-running outboard boat race in the United States. The race not only provides a major event that area residents can enjoy for free, but puts thousands of dollars back into the community by hiring local businesses to provide the necessary services to stage a quality event.
