Bon Appétit: A Culinary Showcase

On March 15th, we hosted Bon Appétit, our culinary celebration and benefit auction.  Bon Appétit: A Culinary Showcase, was held at Canterbury School in New Milford, CT.   Over 195 guests attended this event.  Our students and graduates prepared and passed hors d’ oeuvres to our guests.    We raised $78,000!  All proceeds from this event will go towards our mission of providing job training and job placement for the un-employed and under-employed in our community.

We want to especially thank our sponsors, auction donors, committee members,volunteers, students, graduates, and event attendees for making this our most successful event!
