Every August, for just one night, the Mashpee Chamber invites hundreds of guests to join us for dinner. The street in front of the Mashpee Public Library is completely transformed into a scene straight out of Italy. We call it La Tavola! It’s a five-course Italian feast catered by local Italian restaurant Villaggio Ristorante and served by a group of truly amazing volunteers. While dinner is served, Aaron Caruso, Italian Tenor, serenades the crowd and gives out red roses to some lucky guests.
The Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is an independent not-for-profit organization, and our mission is to foster and achieve a healthy economic climate for everyone in the Mashpee area through the unity and efforts of our membership. Such efforts include our annual La Tavola fundraiser. Every August, for just one night, the Mashpee Chamber invites hundreds of guests to join us for dinner, music, and merriment.
The Mashpee Chamber’s efforts rely on events like La Tavola, but we also want to keep our staff, volunteers, and attendees safe and healthy. So, this year La Tavola will go virtual.
Come celebrate what we’re calling #TeleTavola. Think telethon meets La Tavola!
On Friday, August 7th the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce will present a virtual La Tavola themed concert featuring Italian Tenor Aaron Caruso. The event will stream live for all to view in celebration of togetherness. Prior to and during the live concert the Mashpee Chamber will ask for donations from the community and sponsorships from local businesses to help support the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce during these increasingly unique times.
Donations made before and during this live streaming event will directly benefit the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce’s efforts to continue supporting our businesses, residents, and visitors by providing accurate and up to date information and opportunities for all.
Twelve years ago, the Mashpee community came together to celebrate La Tavola for the first time. The event, the first of its kind on Cape Cod, propelled the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce and assured the business community would thrive. La Tavola is here to support the Mashpee Chamber once again!
This year, as the Town of Mashpee celebrates its 150th year, the Mashpee Chamber calls on all those who have enjoyed La Tavola in the past and those who look forward to enjoying it in the future. With such a milestone for the town of Mashpee and the Mashpee business community working tirelessly to recover from recent challenges, won’t you join us in celebrating this unique Mashpee event?
Your participation not only raises funds for the Mashpee Chamber Scholarship Fund, Shop Local Campaign, and recourses for locally owned businesses. Your participation also sends a message of support and camaraderie with your local business community.
