Hundreds turned out for the Rotary Club of Alexandria’s Taste for Giving gala in a night filled with food and fun. The event raised more than $75,000 for local nonprofits.
According to the Alexandria Gazette, “Held Oct. 25 at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the event featured tastings from 15 Alexandria restaurants and wine and beer from local businesses. Live music, raffles, and silent and live auctions added to the festivities, all in support of the local community.”
Rotary Club president Sharon Meisel said, “Each year Taste for Giving grows larger and generates more proceeds to help those in need. I am so proud of our Rotary Club members and their commitment to Alexandria. Rotary brings us all together and builds community.”
As per Alexandria Gazette, “Proceeds from the event will fund more than 35 grants to nonprofit organizations in the Alexandria community that advance literacy for children and adults and improve the lives of children, youth, seniors and others with special needs. Volunteers at the event included the staff of the nonprofits that are supported through the Rotary Club grants.”
