Tehachapi Area Association of Realtors is excited to announce a Restaurant BINGO contest called TASTE TEHACHAPI with more than $1,700 worth of gift cards to be won!

TAAR President Stacey Peel said, “We want to encourage our community to support our family-owned eateries as they support us. We do not want to see any of our local businesses close down during this difficult time.”

The Taste Tehachapi contest will run from March 1 through 31. Visit 10 family-owned eateries located in Tehachapi, save your receipts and turn in your tasting card to the TAAR office with a copy of receipts by April 9 to be entered into the drawing. It will be one card per person, and you must visit 10 different restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Taste Tehachapi tasting cards will be available with this article (just cut it out), at supporting restaurants, and at the TAAR office located 20705 South St., #A. You can also visit the TAAR website at tehachapiaor.com to download a card or email us at TasteTehachapi@gmail.com and we can email you a card.

We would like to give a huge shoutout to the local eateries that have donated gift cards toward the Taste Tehachapi prizes. Thank you for supporting our bingo contest:
