The Rotary Club of Alexandria held its 11th annual Taste For Giving gala Oct. 19 at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. More than 300 attendees sampled food and wine from 17 area restaurants, raising over $70,000 for local charities and nonprofits. Diamond sponsors of the event included Everly-Wheatley Funerals and Cremation, Anderson Orthopedic Clinic and Cassaday and Company Wealth Management.
“It was a fun and exciting night for everyone who attended,” said Rotarian event chair John Moorman. “We owe a huge thank you to all our sponsors and restaurant donors. It is because of them and all those who came out to support us that our Rotary grants will be able to help so many local organizations in the community.”
