Taste of Two Islands Will Benefit WTJX

Oct. 10, 2006 – Restaurants from St. Thomas and St. John will show off their signature dishes and excite the palates of WTJX supporters at the Taste of Two Islands to be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Marriott’s Frenchman’s Reef. This year 23 participants will provide a variety of delights and delicacies for the supporters of Channel 12 to taste.
The Rising Stars Steelband, which is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, will provide the musical entertainment.
The restaurants participating realize that WTJX and DT 44 are community treasures that should be supported and sustained, not only because of the outstanding programming that they deliver to the community but also because WTJX provides a safe place for our children. PBS is the number one trusted non-profit organization in the country because it represents so much more than the just the broadcast.
Yvette deLaubanque, development officer said, "We are a great value in public media because we create an environment for people to make a difference. We strive to reach generations of people, not just age groups. We are a multi-cultural community and we strive to ensure that each of us can feel represented in our programming, we are dedicated to seeking solutions to social problems, and we provide community service and education. We are not your ordinary commercial TV station, we make an intense effort to remain true to our mission and we need the help of the community to do so."
Tickets are $50 and can be purchased by calling the station at 774-6255 or from any committee member.

1. A Whale of a Tale, Chef Shay Birringham: maryland crab cakes
