The Lighthouse Point Yacht and Racquet Club was overflowing with people enjoying themselves at the eighth annual Taste Around Lighthouse Point.
On January 17, well over 400 people gathered to taste food from 30 local restaurants. The annual signature event for the Lighthouse Point Chamber of Commerce raised more money than previous events by $6,000, bringing this year’s total to $36,000. Funds raised from the Lighthouse Point Chamber’s signature event will be donated back to the community in the form of grants. In past years, local schools, libraries, parks and charities have all benefited from the Taste funds.
“This year’s event was so amazing thanks to our great volunteers, sponsors and co-chairs Cynthia Tenberg and Lizann Brown,” said chamber president Lucille Pignataro with Bank United. “Thank you to everyone who came out and supported this event, thank you to the restaurants for their time and delicious food and to Lighthouse Point Magazine for their wonderful coverage.”
