Taste of


Taste of Charlestown is a wonderful community-building event, and many parent volunteers make it a big sucess!

Good Shepherd School is pleased to announce their Fourth Annual Spring Fundraiser, “A Taste of Charlestown” to be held on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 7pm.

What is a Taste of Charlestown?

This event will be held at our Parish Hall and the whole Charlestown community is invited.  We will have a showcase of foods from our neighborhood restaurants, already confirmed for this year are: Blackmoor, Pier 6, Monument, Figs, and Brewer’s Fork!  Along with music by Karson Tager of Mix 104.1, we will have a silent auction filled with items and experiences, a live auction for two very exciting packages and artwork created by each classroom, and a cash bar. We look forward to another wonderful night!

Why we are having the event?

Proceeds from this fundraiser will help offer scholarships to students in need, support our enrichment programs, and bridge the gap between tuition and the true costs of running the school. Your attendance and support will touch many lives in many wonderful ways. Our goal for the 2020 event is to raise $40,000.
