WEST ORANGE, NJ - The West Orange Rotary's largest fund raiser of the year was held Monday at Mayfair Farms. The 10th annual Taste of the World raised money to help the Rotary Club fund local and international projects.

The Rotary provides scholarships to graduating high school students; runs food drives for the Holy Trinity-West Orange Food Pantry; provides food and refreshments for the township's Fourth of July Celebration; provides third graders in West Orange schools with dictionaries; supports Camp Merryheart, a special needs outreach; and donates to organizations and programs around town. They also spearhead the Community Service Awards every June.

Once again, Mayfair Farms was full of food and beverage vendors sampling their wares for appreciative attendees.  From school principals, teachers, council members and the mayor himself, the ballroom was abuzz with conversation as local vendors new and old, provided tasty treats.

There were several sampling stations for beverages this year.  Total Wine and More not only had a nice display of wines, but they also had real "moonshine," the latest trending alcholic beverage in the industry.  Punzone sampled their organic vodka and differents types of MaCallan single malt scotch were available.

Several dessert stations provided delicious samples as well.  Pink Cupcakes, a new bakery opening on Valley Road in March, served up delicious mini cupcakes, while the Manor, Mark and Julie's Ice Cream and Supreme Bakery, long-time time Rotary supporters, did not disappoint.

A 50-50 and silent auction was also held.  

It was another night of community support in West Orange, not only for the West Orange Rotary, but all those that the Rotary helps.
