The Peabody Rotary Club will be holding its signature event, the 14th Annual Taste of the North Shore, on Tuesday, March 20th from 6-9 PM. This popular event is now being held at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Danvers (formerly the Ferncroft), as additional space is needed to accommodate the growing list of restaurants taking part and the number of people attending.
Twenty-five of the area’s most popular restaurants will serve their tastiest dishes, from main courses to sides to desserts. In addition to the delicious food and great entertainment, a highlight of the evening will be the drawing of a $10,000 grand prize! Raffle tickets are $100 each and include two admissions to the Taste. Odds are in your favor as only 300 raffle tickets will be sold. The winner does not need to be present. Non-raffle admission is $40 per person.
There will also be mystery bags for sale and a silent auction with many coveted items—vacations, sports memorabilia, gift certificates, and more. Also available will be the ever-popular raffles to “stock your cellar” of wine and beer, featuring dozens of bottles and accessories!!
As the biggest fundraiser of the year, the Taste of the North Shore raises thousands of dollars to fund the many important community projects Peabody Rotary supports for those in need. These include scholarships, feeding the homeless, revitalizing Peabody playgrounds, and countless donations to local charities.
We’re encouraging other Rotary clubs to purchase $100 raffle tickets in order to perhaps win $10,000 for their charities. Since the tickets include entry for two to the event, those entries could be auctioned off to recoup the club’s $100 donation. And club members could also buy raffle tickets together.
Tickets may be purchased from Herb Harris (h_harris@smallbizpros.con) or any Peabody Rotary member. The event co-chairs Stephanie Johnson ( and Laura MacNeil ( Visit for more information.
We hope to see you on March 20th!
