12th Annual Wine & Beer Festival
Thank you to everyone who made our 12th Annual Wine & Beer Festival a huge success, especially our co-host, Ted’s of Charlton. Almost 200 guests enjoyed a variety of wine, beer, whiskey, cider, and mixed drinks from our vendors. Many thanks to Hardwick Vineyard & Winery, Horizon Beverage, Commonwealth Wine & Spirits, Quality Beverage, MS Walker, and Atlas Distributing for offering excellent drinks and a friendly atmosphere to all our guests!
Attendees enjoyed free games, raffle prizes, a photo booth sponsored by Chloe Wines, and delicious food stations from Old Sturbridge Village, The Publick House, Ted’s of Charlton, and Cabot Cheese. Live music by Andy DaRos and Laura Folker entertained guests while they browsed our silent auction, which featured many fall-themed gift baskets.
We are grateful for the support of local businesses, community partners, and individuals who contribute to the success of our fundraising events. The proceeds from these fundraisers allow us to enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities and other challenges in our community. With many new projects on the way, these funds help us to expand our services and fill in funding gaps to provide the individuals we support with what they need to live fulfilling, independent lives. We would especially like to thank our major sponsors for their generous contributions to this event: Starkweather & Shepley, TD Bank, Fallon Health, Forensic Risk Alliance, MDG Associates, Southbridge Savings Bank, and Dunkin Donuts.
