FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Taste of Cape Ann Call to Action for Restaurants and Foodies
The most delicious fundraiser of the year is nearly here – it’s time to get your restaurant registered or
your event ticket ordered. Last year’s event included nearly three dozen food and beverage purveyors
and nearly 300 guests!
The Cape Ann YMCA’s 7th Annual “Taste of Cape Ann” returns to Cruiseport Gloucester on
Thursday, November 12, from 6-9PM. The event features the best of Cape Ann eateries offering
food, wine and spirits for one $25 ticket price with the proceeds of ticket sales going to support Cape
Ann YMCA Teen Service Initiatives.
The service trips empower local youth to spend a week working in communities hit by environmental
and economic devastation. Teens participate in learning modules before and after traveling on school
break to offer hands-on aid in areas of great need. The New Orleans Mission, now in its 5th
originated as a Cape Ann trip but has generated enough interest to cause its expansion to include
youth throughout the North Shore YMCA system.
Taste of Cape Ann is:
A great place to showcase your business in front of people who'll be dining local all winter
A great PR opportunity – your business in the spotlight helping your community and those beyond
A great place for locals to sample food and drink from their Cape Ann food choices
A great reason to get out and support kids doing good
We will heavily promote the event and announce event contributors as they come in on Facebook. We
will also provide colorful event flyers to hang in your shop window announcing your participation in the
Annual Taste of Cape Ann. Free press and food blogger tickets mean even more local food-focused
coverage of the event. Fun event, local audience, free press and a good cause for some really
Restaurants wishing to participate should contact Jennifer Amero at
JameroMarketingSuite@gmail.com . There is no vendor fee. We ask only that you read and
sign the logistics/registration form, plan to bring enough food for 250 guests to have a small
sampling of your best buzz-worthy offering and that you come prepared to hand out menus and
advertising information and anything you want to get in front of local diners. To that end,
restaurateurs should plan on staying through the event or sending a sociable representative
from their venue to help in a great PR opportunity for a great cause. (Detailed logistics will be
sent upon signing on).
TICKET INFO: Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here:
