“Taste of Somerset,” has become a model for culinary fund raising events. Hundreds of local businesses have benefited from the exposure and thousands have enjoyed the finest cuisine representing every corner of the world. And most importantly, the tenants of the PeopleCare Center, and the thousands upon thousands of the people that they serve, have benefited from the money that has been raised. “Taste” has generated more than $350,000 for the PeopleCare Center. The funds raised serve to provide a secure, comfortable, and affordable home to non-profit agencies.
