The Malta Business & Professional Association (MBPA) recently hosted the 7th annual Taste of Malta at Hudson Valley Community College’s TEC-SMART in Malta. The evening featured a variety of area restaurants who served samples of their best fare to over 300 attendees. This year’s participating restaurants included Bentley's Tavern, Dock Brown’s, Lake Ridge, Nanola, Panza's, Pasta Pane, Recovery Sports Grill, Spa City Bakery, Villago Pizzeria, and Wolf Hollow Brewing.
As they have for the past five years, the MBPA donated event proceeds to the Ballston Spa Central School District to support educational enrichment programs and initiatives. This year's event raised $4,000 for the Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. The funding will be used to support the District’s Clean Technologies & Sustainable Industries Early College High School, implemented in partnership with Hudson Valley Community College and NYSERDA.
Corporate sponsors for the event included Ballston Spa National Bank, The Adirondack Trust Company, Excelsior Springs, Capital InteriorScapes, Stewart’s Shops, and TapSnap. Media sponsors for the event included 101.3 FM The Jockey, The Ballston Journal, and Look Media.
More information about the event can be found on the MBPA website.
