As host to the fantastic Taste of Cape Ann, the Cruiseport Gloucester was the place to be last night!
We went….and we tasted.
What a tremendous collection of Cape Ann’s finest purveyors, establishments, and eateries serving up some delicious food, decadent treats, and a choice selection of beverages…all in the name of a fantastic cause. Can you say, “Win, Win”? Many excellent raffle items also helped to raise more money and give other local businesses the opportunity to get involved in this tremendous event.
All ticket sales will go towards supporting Cape Ann YMCA Teen Service Trips to New Orleans, Navajo Nation, and Nicaragua. I’m not sure I can think of a better learning opportunity for our community’s youth than providing them the chance to help communities that are in dire need. It is worth mentioning that I couldn’t have been more impressed by the students that were in attendance to represent the YMCA last night. They were enthusiastic, incredibly helpful, and wonderfully polite. Several times throughout the evening I was asked, “Is there anything I can do for you?” and they were right there to remove plates from tables, tidy the function space, and offer friendly smiles. Great job, kids! Way to represent!
