Members of the Prince William County community recently enjoyed a meal and supported a local non-profit.

Project Mend-A-House (PMAH) held its Taste of the Town in Dale City on October 24.

The annual event serves as a fundraiser for PMAH, a Manassas-based organization. It provides free home repairs to seniors, veterans, community members who have disabilities, and individuals in need.

Taste of the Town offered food from more 30 restaurants, a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction at Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 1503.

Students from Gar-Field Senior and Woodbridge Senior high schools volunteered at the various food serving stations.

A few individuals were recognized during the event.

Robert “Bob” Orazi and Ralph Morse were named “Volunteers of the Year,” and Leslie Kirk was the “Client of the Year.”

Thomas Pitkin from Pitkin’s Ace Home Center in Dale City received the Lily Blackwell Lifetime Achievement Award.

PMAH’s new Executive Director, Karen Mills, was introduced, as well.

“Project Mend-A-House would like to thank everyone who has taken time to attend the Taste of the Town,” Mills wrote in an email.

State Delegate Hala Ayala, Supervisors Ruth Anderson and Frank Principi, Prince William County School Board Interim Chairman At-Large Babur Lateef were among the participants.

Mills also thanked VFW Post 1503, and PMAH board members, staff, and volunteers.
