The 22nd Annual Taste of Jamaica Plain was a great success - the only downfall is that we were not able to do the auction. There's no way that we can predict the weather, what we can do is warn you... that you will have a fabulous time at our Silent Auction with over 40 auction items! Please come join us to bid or to enjoy community, refreshments, and a glass of wine. You can see our auction items on biddingforgood.com under "ESAC Rain Date Auction."
The 22nd Taste of JP was a great success on September 14th with more than 20 restaurants serving up delicious morsels -- but down came the rain and washed the silent auction out. So on Thursday the silent auction and a reception will be held. There are more than 40 items up for auction, including gift certificates to local restaurants, memberships and admission to museums and cultural attractions and more. Click here to see the items up for auction.
The rain date silent auction is on Thursday, Oct. 5th from 5 to 8 pm at Arborview Realty (709 Centre St.).
Enjoy the culinary delights of more than 20 local best restaurants while supporting a great cause at the 22nd Taste of Jamaica Plain Thursday, Sept. 14. Oh, don't forget that you'll have opportunities to have encounters with wild animals! "This will be the third year the Taste [of Jamaica Plain] will be held at the Franklin Park Zoo, a unique location that appeals to all ages!" said Emily Morris Litonjua, executive director of Ensuring Stability through Action in our Community (ESAC).
State and federal budget cuts are likely to hit many local nonprofits hard, but you can support a great local nonprofit that helps senior citizens in Jamaica Plain by eating delicious treats from local bakeries, supermarkets, ice cream shops and more. Eating tasty treats and helping the elderly? It's a win-win! Ensuring Stability through Action in Our Community, better known as ESAC, is hosting its first Sweet Tastes of JP at Bella Luna & The Milky Way on Thursday, May 18, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Participating restaurants include: Blue Frog Bakery, Blunch, Fiore’s Bakery, FoMu, Fornax Bread Co., Haley House Bakery Café, J.P. Licks, Roche Bros., Ula Café, When Pigs Fly and Whole Foods. Proceeds of the event will go to the ESAC Senior Home Center, which provides financial counseling, home repairs, renovations and accessibility improvements to senior homeowners in Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, Roslindale, Mattapan and Hyde Park.
