A Tasteful Affair

ATA Logo

Over 500 guests joined us for the tasting event of the season at the 22nd annual A Tasteful Affair held on Sunday, November 4 at The Blue Zone at Kenan Stadium.  Guests enjoyed a culinary feast provided by 22 of the Triangle's finest establishments and a silent auction filled with sports memorabilia, exciting getaways and dining packages!  The event raised a record-breaking $108,000!  

NEW this year was the first ever A Tasteful Affair Food & Beverage Competition held during the VIP Pre-party from 5 to 5:45 p.m.  Local Celebrity Judges participated in a live blind tasting while VIPs enjoyed wine courtesy of Barefoot Wine and passed hors d'oeuvres courtesy of Rocky Top Hospitality. Congratulations to the winners!
