Huntington Rotary Club's Taste of the Town (on Wednesday, October 16th at Appliance World) was a great event! Event-goers were lined up despite the weather!
Taste of the Town is an annual event where some of the hottest names connected to the Huntington culinary scene set up shop at Appliance World and invite the area's most ardent local foodies to sample the tasty bites and creative cocktails they've concocted!
Taste of the Town (hosted by Huntington Rotary Club) is a community event with fabulous food, wine and beer all provided and donated by local restaurants. The event benefitted the Greater Huntington Council of Yacht and Boating Clubs along with the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society – proceeds will go towards Boating Safety Programs and Initiatives plus the many charities that the Huntington Rotary supports throughout the year.
Raffle baskets and big ticket auction items, generously donated by local businesses, were in abundance and added to the fun, all in the spirit of Rotary's motto "Service above Self."
