Habitat for Humanity (MetroWest/Greater Worcester) wants you to Taste the difference it is making in the Tri-Community to provide decent, affordable housing. Taste of the Towns will combine delicious foods and desserts from area restaurants and businesses with a silent auction for an evening of fun November 3 to raise money for Habitat’s project in Sturbridge.
Habitat for Humanity will sponsor Taste of the Towns from 6 to 9 p.m., Thursday, November 3 at the Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center, 366 Main Street, Sturbridge. Tickets are $35. The Sturbridge Host Hotel is graciously providing the space.
Taste of the Towns will feature food samples from area restaurants and other businesses including Cedar Street Grille, Old Sturbridge Village, Rom’s Take-Out and Catering, The Copper Stallion, Rovezzi’s, Wine Buyer’s Outlet and Sturbridge Host Hotel (Sturbridge); Zorba’s (Charlton); Red Roof Catering (Holland); and Harrington Hospital Food Services (Southbridge). Desserts will be provided by Steladenas Specialty Bakery and Café (Sturbridge), Francesco's Italian Bakery (Charlton), The Steaming Tender (Palmer) and Pop’s Biscotti & Chocolates (Springfield).
The evening event will feature live instrumental music, a cash bar, and silent auction. For the first time, the silent auction will include items from Sports Memorabilia. A few examples of framed items to bid on are:
“Our first Taste event was a sellout success so we’re following up with another one this fall,” said Michael Wimberly, a North Brookfield resident who is President of Habitat’s Board of Directors and Chair of the Local Planning Committee. “We are making great progress with our Sturbridge project and looking to expand with a new one in Charlton. We could not have accomplished what we have done to this point without the incredible support from the community. Likewise, we can’t move forward without the community. There continues to be a need for decent, affordable housing in the Tri-Community area and we are making a difference with the support of individuals, businesses and organizations.”
The Habitat Tri-Community Build Project in Sturbridge is the product of a partnership between the Town of Sturbridge, the Sturbridge Housing Partnership and Habitat for Humanity – MetroWest/Greater Worcester (HFH-MW/GW). The Sturbridge Housing Partnership purchased the land using Community Preservation funds specifically to increase the affordable housing inventory in town. They subsequently awarded HFH-MW/GW the right to develop a 1,200 square foot, single family home at 79 Fairview Park Road.
