Posted on Friday, April 14, 2017 at 10:52 am

The Arc of Hanover is excited to invite the community to join them in celebrating the 13th annual “A Taste of Hanover” which will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19, at Bass Pro Shops in Ashland. Restaurants, chefs, caterers and businesses from all over Hanover County will showcase samples of fine cuisine, wine, beer, and more. In addition to the food and drink sampling, guests will have the chance to participate in a Gourmet Goodies Raffle and the Duck Pluck.
“A Taste of Hanover” is a special event that brings businesses together to raise awareness and funds to help improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities and their families. Over the past 12 years, over $250,000 has been raised to help provide services and support including camp and educational scholarships, respite care and recreational activities, and adaptive equipment for increased communication and mobility. This year, our goal is to raise $25,000 for our individuals with disabilities in Hanover County.
Tickets to “A Taste of Hanover” may be purchased online at or in person at the Bass Pro Shops Service Desk, EVB branches in Mechanicsville and Ashland, or at The Arc of Hanover office at 417 Thompson Street in Ashland. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door for adults. Tickets for children 6-12 years old are $10, children under 5 are free.
Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are available for the event. Those wishing to promote a business and support needs in the community with a tax-deductible sponsorship are asked to email for more details.
