UCCA announces Taste of the Town: Dining for a Cause

Taste of the Town committee members Susie Sands and Shari Haug meet with Mike Allas of
Tannins Wine Bar & Boutique to discuss plans for its upcoming benefit Taste of the Town: Dining for a Cause, which takes place on May 16 at Wilder Mansion.

United Community Concerns Association will host the 7th annual, Taste of the Town: Dining for a Cause, an Elmhurst food and drink experience, on May 16, 2024, from 6:00-10:00 p.m. at Wilder Mansion. “This year’s event is even more important than ever. We have seen unprecedented need from District 205 families this year with the number being served growing over 26 percent from this time last year,” said Shari Haug, UCCA president.

The evening will showcase food, wine, and beer tastings from 17 Elmhurst businesses and live music.

Proceeds from Taste of the Town: Dining for a Cause will benefit UCCA, an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization that fights hunger by providing food, referrals, and services to Elmhurst District 205’s most financially disadvantaged children and their families.  Last year UCCA provided more than $184,322 in food and grocery store gift cards to 290 families and 84 senior citizens.

Tickets are $75 per person in advance / $80 at the door. Visit ucca-elmhurst.org to purchase tickets online or send payment to UCCA, P.O. Box 324, Elmhurst, IL 60126.
