The yummiest of fundraisers happens in about two weeks.
On Saturday, Feb. 1, the best of the Merrimack Valley’s culinary flair happens at the Evening of Sweet Indulgence fundraiser for Congregation Beth Israel of the Merrimack Valley, located in Dundee Park, Andover. The event will be held at The Double Tree by Hilton, 123 Old River Road, Andover, from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Tickets start at $40 per person.
Guests can sample a variety of appetizers and desserts from local restaurants, caterers and bakeries during this fundraiser event. Guests can vote on the two prestigious awards of the night: Best Dessert in the Merrimack Valley and Best Appetizer of the Evening.
Participating businesses from Andover include Caffe Nero, Raagini's Indian Bistro, and Samuel's at Andover Inn. Goodies from Burtons Grill and Bar, Lowell Burger Company, Salvatore's Restaurant, Tuscan Kitchen Catering and Edible Arrangements are also included.
Billy Costa from KISS108FM and the TV show “Dining Playbook” hosts the event.
The event will include a disc jockey, live entertainment, raffles and silent and live auctions. This marks the eighth anniversary of “Sweet Indulgence” and many businesses have been supported by the event over those years. Businesses impacted by the 2018 gas crisis will be recognized this year.
