It was crowded and the array of food from 48 vendors created a blend of aromas only found once a year in West Seattle during the annual Taste of West Seattle benefit event.

SLIDESHOW: Sold out Taste of West Seattle satisfied a ton of tastebuds

The annual Taste of West Seattle benefit event was a sell out again as hundreds packed into the Hall at Fauntleroy to sample flavors from 48 restaurants and others around the area. The admission price all went to help the West Seattle Helpline charity.

Monies raised (which we will provide in an update once they have been totaled) will provide the following for West Seattle families facing one-time emergencies:

  • Rent & Utilities
  • Clothing at the Clothesline
  • Metro bus tickets
  • Back to school supplies
  • Referrals to other agencies

It's not too late to support the West Seattle Helpline.

You can donate directly.

$25 will buy bus tickets for 55 people for job interviews and medical appointments
$50 will supplement a family’s utility payment during a time of need
$100 will keep a family’s water on while they look for work
