It was a night of charitable giving on Tuesday as Taste of the North End celebrated with its supporters and community groups that benefit from TONE’s fundraising. Donato Frattaroli hosted the evening at Lucia Ristorante and credited the North End restaurants, cafes and food/drink suppliers that take part in the annual Taste of the North End event. (See photos from the May 2012 TONE.) After delicious food and drinks, TONE co-chairs, Donato Frattaroli and Jim Luisi presented checks to several neighborhood charities and non-profits.
North End Waterfront Health is the largest beneficiary of Taste of the North End, supporting health programs and charity services. Other non-profits that received contributions include North End Head Start, St. John School, Eliot School, North End Against Drugs, Nazzaro Center, North End Athletic Association, St. Leonard Church, St. Steven’s Church and the North End Music and Performing Arts Center.
