Food lovers gather at annual Taste of the South End to benefit AIDS Action

On Tuesday, March 20, food lovers will gather at the 23rd annual Taste of the South End to benefit Aids Action, at the Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts. AIDS Action Committee is New England’s oldest and largest AIDS service organization, providing prevention and wellness services for people living with and at risk of HIV/AIDS.

The 21+ event — which includes participants like Myers + Chang, Bar Mezzana, Area Four, and Blackbird Doughnuts — will feature food and drink tastings, live cooking demos, and a silent auction. Tickets are $150, VIP admission is $200; all proceeds go to AIDS Action.

“Taste of the South End is the one night that foodies don’t have to choose between the many delicious dining options in the neighborhood. Guests can enjoy the best of just about every restaurant in the South End under one roof,” said Carl Sciortino, executive director of AIDS Action. “The fact that they’re eating for a good cause — supporting AIDS Action’s work to bring the number of new HIV infections in Massachusetts down to zero — assuages any guilt one might feel after eating at 40 restaurants in one evening.”
