The Edmonds Chamber of Commerce has announced that, thanks to the tips received from attendees at Taste Edmonds, it has donated a record $8,190.35 to the Edmonds Boys & Girls Club. The previous record was $6,630, according to chamber CEO and President Greg Urban.

Donations came from patron tips in the Taste’s garden.

Urban presented a check to the Boys & Girls Club during the chamber’s networking breakfast at Fairwinds-Brighton Court in Lynnwood.

Individuals, nonprofits and service clubs return year after year to volunteer their time in order to make Taste Edmonds a success, Urban said.

“We are very pleased to be able to support the efforts of the Boys & Girls club, which makes such a difference in the lives of children in our community. We also want to thank our dedicated group of volunteers, who have helped make this event possible for the past 37 years.

"Without Taste Edmonds, we would be unable to support so many local nonprofits and produce community events, like the Fourth of July celebration and Tree Lighting Ceremony.”
