Hundreds Attend Taste of Dorchester; More than $60,000 Raised for Sustainable Homeownership

May 1, 2015 - "Each year it keeps getting bigger and better." "Did you taste the empanadas from Sea Breeze?" "Or the scallops from ester?" If you attended last night's seventh annual Taste of Dorchester®, you may have heard some of these comments. We extend sincere thanks to all 22 restaurants that participated this year and to all of our sponsors, including Top Chef's Arbella Insurance Foundation and Vargas & Vargas Insurance, and to all of our guests. MAHA raised over $60,000 last night in support of our mission to break down barriers to affordable and sustainable homeownership.
