Harvest Supper Coming Soon

HS photThis year’s Harvest Supper will be held on Thursday, September 29, 2016 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. at our Center for Community at 55 Bartholomew Avenue in Hartford. We’ve all been having a blast planning for this event which will have some fun new features.

In keeping with our traditional “soup and bread” theme, The Hartford Baking Company will provide handmade breads, and guests will enjoy soup and salad pairings from local chefs including Tyler Anderson from Millwright’s, Prasad Chirnomula from Thali, Tevin Beckford from Popover’s Bistro & Bakery, and Power Minor and Sean Farrell from CT Provisions, and our own chefs Kim Bunton and Helen Colon.  We’re also excited that the new Hog River Brewing Company will provide beer tastings [please drink responsibly].

“Straight from the Hartt,” a student group from the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music, will keep things lively with an excellent jazz performance.flowers

We’ve been collecting some awesome donations for a silent and live auction, including a stay at a Caribbean villa, a private gourmet dinner, and a wide range of items for all tastes and pocketbooks.  We’ll have the finalized list of auction items out soon to preview.  In addition, former Hands On Hartford VISTA leader, Logan Singerman, who has become a true Hartford change-maker, will give a guest presentation that evening.

As in the past, all proceeds from the event will benefit Hands On Hartford’s programs focused on food, housing and economic security services for Hartford residents in need.  If you haven’t received your invitation, just let us know, or contact Kate Shafer at kshafer@handsonhartford.org; 860-706-1505.  Tickets to the event are $65 per person, VIP tickets are $100 per person.
