Eat, drink — and be righteous

To the Editor:

On Saturday evening, April 5, readers of the Herald will be able to do good while enjoying an evening out. That is the date of the ninth annual Taste of Hyde Park, the major annual fundraiser for the Hyde Park Transitional Housing Project. The location will be the Church of St. Paul and the Redeemer, 4945 S. Dorchester Ave., with the event officially starting at 6 p.m and lasting to roughly 9 p.m. Attendees will be able to sample food and drink from twenty or more local eating establishments, enjoy the jazz offerings of Willie Pickens and look for bargains in the silent auction. Tickets are $35 in advance, or $40 at the door (less for students with ID and children). To purchase tickets on-line and in advance, readers should go to hpthp.org. Folks with questions can write to hpthp@yahoo.com or phone Allan at 773-595-4921, up until noon of the day of the event.
