    Event Description:
    SALEM —The House of The Seven Gables’ popular fundraiser is set for Sunday, September 17, beginning at 5 p.m. This highly anticipated evening, set amid historic homes and beautiful seaside gardens, is a lively mix of silent and live auctions featuring prized works by local and regional artists, a bounty of locally sourced and artfully prepared foods by local chefs and vendors, and friends old and new who gather at The Gables’ stunning oceanfront setting. Proceeds enable The House of The Seven Gables Settlement Association’s dual mission — to contribute to the education of at-risk students and to preserve The Gables’ National Historic Landmark District. Taste of The Gables is held at The Gables, 115 Derby St., Salem, Massachusetts. Some parking is available. To make reservations, please visit the website at www.7gables.org. “Taste of The Gables, our annual fundraising event, is also one of our most memorable gatherings of the year,” says Executive Director Kara McLaughlin. “We are grateful for the tremendous support our community provides our Settlement Association work. This night celebrates The Gables’ long tradition of engagement with our neighbors and our community at large.” Karen Barter, Director of Development, says that Taste of The Gables is a special time when people gather to celebrate the region’s amazing resources. “The tastings are fabulous,” she says. “No one goes home hungry from a Taste of The Gables evening! Guests happily mingle with local philanthropists, authors, artists and supporters of one of the most beloved houses and organizations in America. The event features the food and talents of 25 local chefs and vendors who enthusiastically offer some of their most notable, most sumptuous creations. The night includes a Silent Auction of original artwork, a live auction of luxury items and a Board of Trustees’ raffle! Live auction bidding is always entertaining and competitive, and this year Don Kelley will be the MC. All proceeds benefit The Gables’ mission of education for at-risk students and preservation of the historic houses and grounds of the campus. All are invited to this night of food, fun and philanthropy.”
