The 8th Annual Taste of Westport will be held on May 3rd at the Westport Inn. The Taste of Westport supports CLASP, a 30 year old Westport-based organization that provides group housing for 80 men and women with autism and related developmental disabilities. Your $75 entry fee ($80 at the door) gives you sampling rights to some of the Westport area’s finest dining spots, and you can support a great cause.

The evening'd emcee will be Chaz of the Chaz and AJ Show on New Haven’s WPLR 99.1 FM.  Chaz will lend his lively persona to the event and add sound to our silent auction.
