Taste of Lee County and Community Comedy Roast

The Taste of Lee County and Community Comedy Roast is the GPCDC’s largest fundraising event. Vendors from across Lee County provide samples of their most popular menu items while guests enjoy a time of fellowship and networking. The evening ends with the comedy roast, where a member of the community allows their family and friends to roast them all in the name of charity.
