Assistance League of Fullerton has been holding the Taste of the Town since 1979. This is an annual fundraiser in which all members participate. Various restaurants in the area donate time and their special signature dishes to the event. Guests attending the event can sample as many restaurants as they wish for the price of admission! Beer, wine, coffee, and soft drinks are included. Entertainment for the whole family is provided, including a live band. Tickets for baskets comprised of gift certificates and merchandise may be purchased at the event. This year’s silent auction included VIP Bruno Mars tickets, catering packages, a special quilt, jewelry, and vacations. Guests purchased opportunity tickets for an “opportunity” to win $1,000. The event is held at the Museum Plaza in downtown Fullerton. All funds from this event directly benefit the philanthropic projects of Assistance League of Fullerton.
We all enjoyed a fun-filled evening at the beach in Fullerton’s Downtown Plaza. Many thanks to our donors and to our restaurants without which this event could not be held. Our silent auction even included concert tickets to see Taylor Swift! We danced late into the evening to the sound of “The Resoles”.
Fiesta en La Plaza
“Fiesta en La Plaza” was the Assistance League of Fullerton’s 33rd annual Taste of the Town, held May 19, 2012 at the Museum Plaza in Old Town Fullerton (on Wilshire Blvd. between Harbor Boulevard and Pomona). The evening’s entertainment started off with strolling mariachis and kicked into high gear with music by our own local band, “The Resoles”.
Hooray for Hollywood
Our theme, “Hooray for Hollywood”, summoned creative talents from our guests as well as from our Assistance League of Fullerton members. In addition to our celebrated Assistance League of Fullerton volunteers, we enjoyed the company of The Godfather, Cleopatra, Huck Finn, Laurel and Hardy and many other famous celebrities. A photo booth offered complimentary photos with the stars, the McCoy Rigby Conservatory of the Arts dancers were featured in our opening extravaganza, and reporters graced the red carpet to highlight designer gowns. Of course our fabulous local restaurants contributed to the fun, and the Ravelers regaled us with their great sounds.
