Food lovers gather at festival to benefit AIDS victims


On March 20th, food lovers will gather at Boston Center of the Arts to benefit Aids victims, reports the Boston Globe.

The annual event, the Taste of the South End to Benefit AIDS Auction, will bring together food lovers and restaurant samples. It will be a 21+ event and include samples from Myers + Chang, Bar Mezzana, and Blackbird Doughnuts. Live cooking demos and a silent auction will also be highlights of the event.

“Taste of the South End is the one night that foodies don’t have to choose,” Carl Sciortino, executive director of the program, says. “The fact that they’re eating for a good cause…assuages any guilt one might feel after eating at 40 restaurants in one evening.”
