Enliven your senses this weekend at Taste of Claremont
The Rotary Club of Claremont is gearing up for its 17th annual Taste of Claremont event Saturday, April 30 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Claremont University Consortium Building located at 101 N. Mills Ave., Claremont.
This is Claremont Rotary’s pinnacle fundraising event and one of Claremont’s premier community affairs. Last year, this event was attended by over 800 participants and raised $45,000 for the Rotary Foundation, which directly benefits charitable organizations in our community.
Participants are invited to enjoy Claremont’s finest cuisine, wine and beer as local establishments dish up their very best. The venue provides ample space for people to sample the selections of over 50 area restaurants, breweries and wineries that donate their wares to make the event possible. The evening will feature live music and dancing, a magician, raffle, art display and auction.
Proceeds from the event support community and global programs supported by the volunteers and resources of Rotary Club of Claremont and Rotary International. Local beneficiaries of the club include several educational organizations: AbilityFirst, CLASP, Best BET Teacher Grants, literacy and student leadership camps, awards, scholarships and programs. Funds also go to Bikes for Kids and Hope Partners.
The Claremont organization also participates in Rotary International programs, supporting the Shelter Box Project, Corazon International Clean Water Projects, Worldwide Youth Exchange and worldwide polio eradication.
Tickets for the event are $65 pre-sale and $75 at the door. To buy tickets or for more information call (909) 447-7717 or visit tasteofclaremont.org.
