Marlborough – Hundreds of guests supported the 24th annual Evening of Giving, held Dec. 5 at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel. They sampled offerings from over 30 eateries and danced to music provided by deejay Matt Rutting.

Chef Leon Roberge returned with his popular shrimp and raw bar decorated with his ice sculpture. As usual, the longest line of the evening was for the make-your-own-sundaes from Trombetta's Farm. Also returning were Bob Kays as event chair with Ivette Mesmar coordinating the food.

Proceeds go to Roland's House, the Marlborough-Hudson homeless shelter.
