Not only does Mystic Eats bring together so many great restaurants, it helps support a great cause in our community. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to MASH (Mystic Area Shelter and Hospitality, Inc.), a non-profit charity that strives to end family homelessness.
Mystic Eats would not be possible without the support of our generous and hardworking sponsors, including Seaport Marine, F&F Distributors, Levine Distributing Co., Coca Cola Bottling, Jonathan Edwards Winery, ABC Photo, Arrow Paper, Mystic River Ambulance, The Westerly Sun, The Day and Full Power Radio.
