“This is how you build community,” said volunteer Dan Coyne as he surveys the scene at the ninth annual Taste of Evanston at the Charles Gates Dawes House. The event, hosted by the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club, raised money for two Evanston nonprofits – Connections for the Homeless and Reba Place Development Corp. – as well as local and global Rotary projects. Forty Evanston restaurants volunteered to feed 500 guests, who bought tickets to sample food and meet neighbors on the lakeside lawn of the historic mansion at 225 Greenwood St. That’s Coyne, who helped organize the event, in the chef hat.
