Signature Culinary Fundraising Event Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Raises Funds for Project Self-Sufficiency

NEWTON, N.J. – The 25th anniversary of northwestern New Jersey’s premier culinary fundraising event, A Taste of Talent, will be held at Perona Farms on behalf of local non-profit agency Project Self-Sufficiency on Monday, May 1, beginning at 6 p.m. 

Patrons are invited to mingle with chefs from approximately 50 celebrated area restaurants while feasting on appetizers, entrees and desserts. The epicurean event raises funds for the non-profit agency which specializes in services for low-income families in Sussex, Morris, Hunterdon and Warren counties.  

Some of the many fine restaurants which have participated in the past are expected to return.

Sponsorships for A Taste of Talent range from $500 to $25,000. A limited number of tickets for individual donations are available at a cost of $300.  The event will take place indoors and outside at the venue. Volunteer musicians will entertain guests by performing throughout the facility.

“For 25 years, A Taste of Talent has been our signature fundraising event and the cornerstone of our annual campaign,” noted Deborah Berry-Toon, executive director of Project Self-Sufficiency. “Funds raised by A Taste of Talent make it possible for Project Self-Sufficiency to provide the programs and services necessary for families in northwestern New Jersey to attain economic self-sufficiency. We continue to be humbled by the support we receive from the restaurateurs in our area, and we are looking forward to a delightful event.”
