American Cancer Society – Taste of Hope

April 28, 2009 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC, the American Cancer Society hosted the Fourth Annual Taste of Hope event which raised over $155,000! Taste of Hope is cocktail-type atmosphere with 40 participating restaurants stationed throughout the venue, presenting a tasting of their choice of dishes, as well as wine, spirits, and beverage tastings. A silent auction helped raise funds for the ACS with items from sports memorabilia to fashion items. It was a fun event with a great cause!
