A Taste of Roslindale, the major annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Roslindale Village Main Street organization, is this Thursday, September 22. Money raised will pay for holiday lights throughout Roslindale Village and help to fund the Roslindale Food Pantry, which serves local families out of the Roslindale Congregational Church.
Almost two dozen local eateries will offer up signature samples of their food, the Pat Monahan Jazz Quartet will perform and a live auction promises an entertaining night. For those who can’t attend, but want to participate, an online auction is being held through Wednesday night.
Among items up for bid are a limited edition Tom Brady hand-signed official full-size New England Patriots game helmet, a shopping tour of Roslindale by a personal chef and an excursion on an America’s Cup yacht in Newport.
A Taste of Roslindale, September 22, 2011, 6:30 p.m. at St. Nectarios Church, 39 Belgrade Avenue. Tickets: $30 in advance; $35 at the door. Visit roslindale.net for details.
