If your taste buds are in the mood for some terrific eats and you’re willing to help out a dedicated non-profit serving those with disabilities, then mark your calendars. Wednesday, May 18, NuPath, a leading provider of programs and services for adults with disabilities, hosts its 14 annual “Taste of —a smörgåsbord of delicious tastings from 25 local eateries, many in Burlington, as well as raffles and a silent auction.
“We feel so blessed this year that, despite a less than ideal economy, we have had so many generous sponsors step forward this year for the event,” said NuPath's Executive Director, Sheri McCann. "In addition, this year we’ve got so many outstanding restaurants participating in the event and we sadly had many more that we couldn’t include this year.”
Food varieties will range from Italian to Southwestern and BBQ to Vegetarian. This year’s participating restaurants will be:
2 Forbes–American Bistro, , Bobby C’s, Brazilian Steakhouse–Churrascaria, Rodeo, Dole and Bailey, Dunkin Donuts–Catalano Companies, Fairways at the Woburn Country Club, Focaccia, Green’s Grille and Pub, , , , Masa Southwest Bar and Grill, , Nourish Restaurant, , Polcari’s, , Sam’s Bistro, Scoreboard Sports Bar & Grill, Sea Dog Brew Pub, , The Capital Grille, Tryst, and Whole Foods Market–Woburn.
If a host of delicious food offerings from some of the most well-known of Boston-area restaurants wasn't enough, the event also offers up raffles and a silent auction. Prizes and items include: Red Sox tickets, Patriots/Bruins/Celtics memorabilia, many sports items, hotel stays, gift certificates to restaurants, and much more; even a backstage tour through Channel 5.
“A Taste of Spring is NuPath’s major fundraiser for the year,” said McCann. “Proceeds from this event flow directly back into programs and services for our community. We pride ourselves on improving the lives of disabled individuals by providing affordable housing, vocational training and job placement, transportation, and so many other services in order for these individuals to live fully and to become independent contributors in their community.”
NuPath's Taste of Spring takes place Wednesday, May 18 at the Holiday Inn Select at 15 Middlesex Canal Park Road in Woburn. Guests are welcome to arrive at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-meal cocktail and start of the raffles. The event runs until 8 p.m.
Presenting and supporting sponsors of this event include: The Beacon Grille, Skyworks Solutions, WB Mason, Landmark Structures, Integrated IT, Winchester Savings Bank, Leonard, Mulherin & Greene, Fred C. Church, and Edward Jones (Bill Sullivan, Financial Advisor).
