ST. PETE BEACH – The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce hosted its sixth annual Taste of the Beaches event July 20.
The event saw record attendance once again this year as 26 restaurants and hundreds of locals and visitors came to support the chamber and their nominated charity Clothes to Kids. As a result, the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber was able to achieve their goal of contributing $5,000 to the charity. Cricket Wagner, special events committee chair, and Robin Sollie, president and CEO of TBBCoC, recently visited Clothes to Kids’ Patti Hanks to reveal the total and present the check.
Clothes to Kids is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization serving low income or in crisis school-age children in Pinellas County. CTK provides wardrobes to children qualifying for free or reduced lunches and served 10,490 youth in 2013.
