Tickets now on sale for the 2012 Taste of Hope
Wheaton, IL (January 12, 2012) Tickets are now available for the sixth annual Taste of Hope that will be held on Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 5:30pm-9:30pm at Abbington Distinctive Banquets in Glen Ellyn, IL.
The Taste of Hope will once again thrill taste buds with more than 25 of the area’s elite restaurants serving their signature dishes. The event, while full of food and fun will more importantly fund key DuPage PADS programs that provide much-needed housing, career building, and other supportive services to assist individuals and families who are homeless. An open bar and live and silent auctions will round out an evening of delicious dining.
Chef Amaury Rosado of Chef Amaury’s Epicurean Affair will return as the Honorary Chair for the event and Dave Savini, CBS 2 News Reporter, will be the emcee and auctioneer. Sponsorship, advertising and auction item opportunities for local businesses and restaurants are still available.
This event supports DuPage PADS, a non-profit agency committed to end homelessness in DuPage County by providing safe and hospitable housing solutions, support and employment options for individuals and families who are homeless. Tickets for the event are $75 per person and proceeds benefit the vital programs and services of DuPage PADS.
