Because of the generosity of the chefs, volunteers, sponsors, and C&C Packing the entire event ticket price will benefit Le Nichoir. Le Nichoir is known far and wide for its auction tables! Businesses and individuals have come together once again to make sure A Taste of Hudson guests have an eclectic mix of great items to bid on throughout the evening.

Susan Wylie, Executive Director of Le Nichoir explains, “This year’s A Taste of Hudson is especially important as it celebrates Le Nichoir’s 20th anniversary and the construction of the new Wild Bird Conservation Centre. This is no small feat and being able to share this special occasion with our supporters is important to us. A Taste of Hudson is our most important fundraiser which supports Le Nichoir’s two programs; providing professional and compassionate care to the over 1500 birds brought to the Centre each season and the delivery of a growing environmental education program for children. With the enormous amount of help Le Nichoir has received organizing this event it is guaranteed to be a hit!”
