About 400 people were expected to attend Heart of Niagara Animal Rescue's fourth annual "Heart to Heart" fundraising event, "A Taste of The Niagara Region," Saturday afternoon inside The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls.
This year's event featured a tropical theme with calypso and reggae musical entertainment provided by the world-renowned Caribbean Extravaganza Band.
A $25 food ticket allowed eventgoers to sample donated food and dessert items from more than 40 participating eateries.
Net proceeds will support HON's ongoing work in rescuing animals (including the purchase of food, medical and other needed supplies), and providing a new facility where animals can stay until finding a forever home.
Guests voted on their favorite dish at the event. There also was a basket auction featuring more than $1,000 in prizes.
