The Rotary Club of Teaneck encourages businesses and residents to hold the date of Monday, April 15, 2013 for the second annual “Taste of Teaneck.” This showcase of delicious foods from area restaurants, sweets and treats from bakeries, plus entertainment, raffles, and a tricky tray auction, is an evening of celebration of Teaneck’s community spirit. The Rotary Club of Teaneck decided to repeat the event due to the overwhelming success last year, and Marriott Teaneck at Glenpointe has once again generously donated the use of their ballroom.
Local restaurants, deli’s, bakeries, and caterers are invited to participate by preparing signature dishes for sampling. A nominal entry fee charged by The Rotary Club covers the cost of these outstanding samplings, and the Marriott will provide beverages for purchase. Advance purchase is $35 per ticket and at the door will be $40. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to experience the diversity of foods found here in Teaneck, representing many of the cultures in the community. Both Kosher and non-Kosher foods will be available. Participants in last year’s event included Ma’aden, Classic Quiche, Athens Bakery, Zoe’s Cupcakes, Maggie’s and more.
Representatives from the Rotary will contact area restaurants in the next few weeks with registration forms, however for more information or to participate, call George Angelaccio at 201-928-2016 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org . A special website has been set up to provide updated information, allow online registration, and order tickets. The website address is www.tasteofteaneck.com.
Now in its 84th year of community service, The Rotary Club of Teaneck uses the monies raised to help the community through donations to TVAC, Helping Hands Food Pantry, the Community Scholarship fund and many other programs. On the international level, Teaneck Rotary is pleased to be directly involved with the "Gift of Life” Program. Attendees will have an opportunity to experience one of the highlights of Teaneck’s community spirit while helping the Rotary Club with its fund-raising efforts.
The Rotary Club of Teaneck meets every Wednesday at noon at Vitale’s, 293 Queen Anne Road, Teaneck. All are welcome and the only cost is for lunch. Kosher or halal meals can be provided at meetings with advance notice. To find out more about our club and what we do, like us on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/teaneckrotaryclub
