Once again, the DeLand Breakfast Rotary sold out its Albert D. Downs Wild Game Feast. Staple menu items at the fundraising feast celebrate Cracker cuisine and feature fried alligator, pulled pig, venison chili, cooter and other Florida favorites.
“Nothing is more satisfying than a feast made from wild food, gathered and cooked by a group of friends,” Al Downs is quoted as saying. Downs is credited with being one of the founders of the Wild Game Feast, and it was named in his honor when he died. The event routinely raises more than $100,000 each year to support West Volusia nonprofit organizations.
