A Tasteful Affair

Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill

The cuisine of more than two dozen of the Triangle's best restaurants, catering firms, beverage purveyors and food trucks is featured under one roof for one price for a great cause. This culinary extravaganza raises money for the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, the home-away-from-home for families with seriously ill children who travel to the town for specialty care. The gala's motto: "Giving never tasted so good!"
