A handful of Wellesley restaurants/food providers will take part at the Natick Visiting Nurse Association’s 8th annual Fresh Taste benefit on Thursday, June 19 from 6-9pm at Elm Bank Reservation on the Wellesley/Dover/Natick line.
Former WCVB anchor Susan Wornick will host the event, which will raise funds to support the Natick VNA in its endeavor to provide home health care to individuals throughout MetroWest, regardless of their ability to pay. Funds will be raised through sponsorships, ticket sales, on-site donations and through a live and silent auction. Last year, Fresh Taste raised more than $60,000. Additionally, the winning ticket for a six-day/five-night round-trip for two to Carmel, Calif., will be drawn and announced at the event.
Wellesley restaurants particpating include Captain Marden’s Seafoods/The Cod Squad Food Truck, The Cottage, Dorset Café, The Local, Peet’s Coffee and Tea, Whole Foods Market. A bunch of other local restaurants, including Needham’s Sweet Basil, will also be there.
Tickets to the event are $75, and all proceeds will benefit the Natick VNA.
