Taste nets close to $30K

The county’s current budget crisis got a sweet bite taken out of it Friday—at least, for Daphne’s public high school—when more than 1,150 people attended the ‘Taste of the Eastern Shore’ fundraiser at the Daphne Civic Center.

The charitable feast netted $28,700 in ticket sales; totals from the silent auction had not been tallied before press time. Donations will help county administrators offset a growing deficit—now totaling $56 million—that has led to waves of budget cuts and job losses.
