REAL ESTATE ROAST ROSTER:  The Stoughton Chamber of Commerce is roasting another "victim" on Saturday, March 2. 

After previous roasts of Terry Schneider. and Mike Sammarco, this year's "roastee" is Stoughton real estate legend Fred Yaitanes.  

Fred, along with his lovely bride Nadine Israel, owns the Fred & Nadine Realtor Team of Stoughton, which runs out of the Keller Williams Office in Easton. Fred is an active member of the Food Pantry Foundation of Stoughton, and recently directed a murder mystery at Town Hall that raised over $3,000 for SOLA (Support Our Library Association). 

The roast, which runs from 7-9:30 p.m. at the Portuguese National Club at 21 Railroad Avenue, will feature decadent desserts and a lot of insults that will have Fred "well done" by the end of the evening!  

To date, panelists include such local notables the President of the Little Theatre of Stoughton, Jan Jones; landscaper and cousin of the roastee, a very funny guy, Phil YaitanesLinda Werman of the Old Colony Hospice and Stoughton youth sports; and former Stoughton town activist (remember the Recall), Mark Hausammann. Panelists are subject to change.

I will be hosting my fourth roast.  

In addition to baked goods, desserts will also feature Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, and all their delicious toppings! DJ Chris Zienko of Men in Black will be playing the music. There will be a 50-50 raffle with proceeds going to the Anne Havlin Scholarship Fund.  

Tickets are $20 per person, and can be purchased at the door, and in advance at www.stoughtonma.com or by emailing Nadine@FredandNadine.com, or call/texting 781-953-0209.

This will be a fun evening with proceeds going to a great cause. Fred is a great guy who is hard to roast since he is always on! On what...I have no idea!
