Local Restaurants Respond to Charity for the 20th Year



Once again, local restaurants came out in force for the Chesapeake Care Clinic’s 20th Annual Taste of Chesapeake.  Guests gathered around spacious tables at the Chesapeake Conference Center to sample special offerings from a host of  area  restaurants.  The Shopper Team, who were present for the food and fun, offer sincere thanks to Shopper   advertisers such as Black Pelican, Freemason Abbey, Ddebs and Traditions, whose contributions continue to male this annual event such a great success!
