Better Community Living to Host 11th Annual Sweet Temptations Wine and Food Event | Supporting Programs that Serve Adults and Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Better Community Living Inc. is excited to announce its 11th Annual Sweet Temptations Wine & Food event! The event will be held on October 19, 2017 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Seaport Inn and Marina, located at 110 Middle Street in Fairhaven, MA.  The raffle and auction will be conducted at 8:00 p.m. The media are invited to attend at no cost provided there is an even exchange for media coverage, e.g. photos and/or a newspaper write-up.

This event serves as the agency’s most important fundraising effort. Last year, more than 200 guests attended the event, raising over $14,000. Attendees enjoy a night of food, wine, beer, auction items, raffles and fun. In addition, attendance helps support the mission of BCL and critical services for those in need.

Better Community Living is dedicated to supporting and serving individuals with developmental disabilities in the Greater New Bedford Area as they strive to develop relationships and greater independence in the community. Programs include Bridges to Faith, Children’s Services, Day Habilitation, Individual Supports, Residential Living, Shared Living, and Supported Employment.

The event is sponsored by Douglas Wine & Spirits, and music will be provided by DJ Gene Daniels.

Tickets are $50 per person. For tickets, please contact Linda Moniz at 508-999-4300 ext. 122, or by email at Linda_Moniz@nullbettercommunity.com. You may also purchase tickets online.

Last year, over 200 people attended this event and we raised over $14,000.  Generous donors like you are the key to our success and make it possible for BCL to provide local individuals and families, in need, with assistance and critical services.  Thank you for your consideration.
