Marlborough – Hundreds of guests supported the 25th annual Evening of Giving, held Dec. 4 at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel. They sampled offerings from 29 eateries, then treated themselves to make-your-own-sundaes from Trombetta’s Farm.
Chef Leon Roberge returned with his popular shrimp and raw bar, this year decorated with his ice sculpture commemorating the fundraiser’s 25th anniversary. Once again, Bob Kays served as event chair with Ivette Mesmar coordinating the food.
Proceeds go to Roland’s House, the Marlborough-Hudson homeless shelter. According to the evening’s program, “In the 25-year history, this event has raised over $750,000 to support the operations of this important community resource.”
Guests were encouraged to bring personal items such as socks and toiletries to be donated to Roland’s House. New this year, items were also collected for the Willis House, a family shelter in Hudson.
