Meet Our Tastemakers!

These dedicated people are challenged with raising funds in support of The Children’s Place and leading the party at Brews & Bites on September 21. 

Join us in cheering on our Tastemakers by supporting their campaign to go beyond the backpack this fall as children head back to school. Beyond sharpened pencils and boxes of 64 crayons, children need a foundation of strong mental health to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Will you make a gift to help children in our community receive the mental health care they need this fall?

Brews & Bites is the incredible event it is thanks to the participation of local businesses who serve as vendors. We’re looking for restaurants, breweries, distilleries, coffee shops, etc. to join us for Brews & Bites 2023. Each vendor can plan to provide a sample for 250-300 guests, and a stipend is provided to help cover costs.
