Taste of Hyde Park returns next month

To the Editor:

The annual Taste of Hyde Park will take place on Saturday, March 2, between 6 and 9 p.m. This year the location is Church of St. Paul and the Redeemer, 4945 S. Dorchester Ave. The event is the major annual fundraiser for the Hyde Park Transitional Housing Project. With food and drink donated by more than 20 Hyde Park and Kenwood restaurants and other food establishments, including some new ones, the evening is a great opportunity to sample food from a wide range of Hyde Park and Kenwood eating establishments in exchange for an admission contribution that goes to a great cause. Adult tickets cost $35, if ticket purchased in advance, or $40 at the door, with lower costs for students with ID and children. Attendees also get to listen to music from local jazz legend Willie Pickens while dining. In addition, there is a silent auction, where attendees can bid on professional services, tickets, gift certificates and more, with opening bids well below the value of the item and all funds going to the Hyde Park Transitional Housing Project. So readers can come to the Taste of Hyde Park and have fun doing good. For further information, folks may write to hpthp@yahoo.com or call Allan at 773-595-4921.
