A Taste of Hampden was a tremendous success and a great party. This year the Family Center was able to raise $15,000! There were more than250 people in attendance and the place was overflowing with supporters. Guests mingled with friends and enjoyed sampling a variety of cuisines from 23 participating restaurants. From steamed mussels to lasagna, green chile stew to tenderloin sliders, calamari to baked potato soup, pad thai to tortellini and even bacon and pancake cake for dessert. No one left hungry and everyone remarked the food was delicious and plentiful! The Wine Source generously donated the wine, beer and assorted beverages and this year and Union Craft Brewing donated one of their specialty beers.

Guest participated in a raffle for the “Mystery Boxes.” Some lucky winners departed for the night with raffle prizes in tow thanks to the generosity of local businesses that donated items for our “Mystery Boxes” (see below for details).

Sincere thanks to the many restaurants that participated this year. It was a tremendous success due, in no small measure, to the big hearts of the local establishments that joined us for an evening of food, fun, wine and music. Your generosity and support of the Family Center is greatly appreciated! We hope that you will support the many restaurants that supported us.
