SERVING INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES LIVING WITH MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS IN MIDDLESEX COUNTY SINCE 1968
“Adventure is out there!”
Traditionally, guests begin the evening with dinner at a local home or restaurant and then gather together at Wesleyan University for client stories, homemade desserts, wine and beer tasting, tea cup raffle, live auction, and trivia quizzes.
In order to offer a safe and responsible alternative in 2020 & again in 2021, the event was held on the beautiful grounds of Saint Clements Castle looking over the Connecticut River. Guests were encouraged to come early and enjoy a picnic box dinner in their sunken gardens, view teacup raffle items and enjoy homemade desserts and popcorn while watching the featured drive-in movie, Disney Pixar’s UP.
