QUIZINE for a Cause! A cross between quiz and cuisine.

Because of your boundless generosity, the 18th Annual Quizine for a Cause no only surpassed our fundraising goal, but we also got our endowment to $1 million THREE YEARS EARLY! We didn’t just create ripples of change, we caused waves of support and raised $147,000 in one evening.

It was energizing to return to Wesleyan’s Beckham Hall, the venue that we all know and love. Our generous hosts not only provided delicious dinners, but nearly everyone was in attendance, buying raffle tickets, and enjoying delectable homemade desserts by 7pm. We gathered to hear stories about how Changed Lives Change Lives from our two powerful speakers, former Farrell clients Mike Menegus and Amol Amin. These two men are testaments to how lives touch lives and create ripples of change that spread positivity within and beyond our communities.

Thank you to those who spent their Sunday evening with us in celebration of the ripples of change we have created and can create in perpetuity.

Quizine for a Cause is an exciting annual event that raises critical funds for client services supporting individuals on the road to recovery. Guests begin the evening with dinner at a local home or restaurant with their host and then we all gather together at Beckham Hall at Wesleyan University for client stories, homemade desserts, wine and beer tasting, tea cup raffle, live auction, and trivia quizzes.


Thank you to our Sponsors!!
