Take a Bite Out of Homelessness
Join Bennington Coalition for the Homeless on Saturday, October 19, at 6, at the Carriage Barn at Park-McCullough House in North Bennington, Vt., for a fun-filled evening of music, food and friendship.
Guests will enjoy a casual buffet style dinner featuring barbecued pulled pork, salads, veggies and lots of desserts. A cash bar, hosted by Brian Johansen, owner of JC’s Tavern in Bennington, will be serving beer, wine and a full complement of adult beverages, as well as sodas and bottled water. Live music will be performed by local favorites, the Buzzsaw Boys, whose melodic tunes are great for dancing and just listening to.
The evening will feature both silent and live auctions. The silent auction is filled with many beautiful works of art, jewelry, gift items and gift certificates to local businesses. An original painting by acclaimed artist Stella Erich is available to the highest bidder.
The live auction is a first of its kind, and will offer guests the opportunity to support a local small business and the Coalition at the same time. The Coalition needs help paying some bills. Bidders will be offered the chance to help the Coalition pay specific bills with a donation or a payment directly to the local vendor. These local small businesses have helped BCH by providing much needed services and waiting patiently to be paid. They deserve to be paid and BCH wants to pay them.
Admission is $20 per person. Tickets are available at the door or by calling BCH at 802-753-7205.
