Taste of the Town 2010 To Benefit The AIDS Project

This Sunday, Dec. 12, more than 30 area restaurants, wine suppliers, breweries and other establishments will take part in the 13th annual Taste of the Town fundraiser in State College held at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel.

The night will feature dinner and live music, as well as wine and spirits, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and a live auction. The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. and this year’s theme is “Paris: City of Light.”

Tickets are $75 for the four-hour event and will benefit The AIDS Project of Centre and Clinton Counties. The goal this year is to raise $40,000, which would supply about 13 percent of the organization’s budget.

Reservations can be made via The AIDS Project website, and each ticket buyer may purchase an extra ticket for an HIV-positive person who otherwise could not attend the gathering. All ticket purchases are tax-deductible, according to The AIDS Project.

A list of this year’s participants in the event:

The Allen Street Grill, the Autoport, Cafe Lemont, Clem’s BBQ, Cold Stone Creamery, Cozy Thai Bistro, Doan’s Bones BBQ, Duffy’s Tavern, Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks, For Heaven Cakes, Gemelli Bakery, Harrison’s Wine Country Grill, Herwig’s Austrian Bistro, Kelly’s Steak and Seafood, Mario and Luigi’s, Otto’s Pub and Brewery, Rotelli, Spats Cafe and Speakeasy, Starbucks, Suzie Wong’s Eggrolls and More, The Dining Room at the Nittany Lion Inn, The Enchanted Kitchen, The Tavern, The Village at Penn State, Troegs Brewing Co., Webster’s Bookstore Cafe and Zola New World Bistro.

So, come out, support a great cause and indulge in some of State College’s finest foods and drinks. You won’t want to miss out on this great charity event!
