On October 10th, we celebrated our Creative Arts Therapy program for children and young adults with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities at our third annual Beer, Bourbon, and Bites fundraiser. Thanks to you and the generosity of our leading sponsors Lamb Insurance Services, Mutual of America, and Ridgewood Savings Bank as well as Flag Waterproofing and Restoration, Procida Companies, The Aris Family, Lisa Goldstein and Donna & Bob Whiteford we were able to reach our goal.
The evening was made special by the generosity of so many Brooklyn based businesses that donated food, beer, bourbon, & wine to help raise money for music, drama, yoga, and horticultural therapy.
Guests sampled bourbon from American Barrels Bourbon, Boone County Bourbon, Oppidan Bourbon, Old Tennessee Distilling Co. and Prohibition Bourbon and wine from Corkscrew and Tops Wine. Beer from Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, Coney Island Brewing Company, Hofbrau Brewing Company, Lagunitas Brewing Company, and Sixpoint.
Also enjoyed by so many were bourbon glazed pork belly and more from Bon Soir, Mac and Cheese from Soco, and Kolaches from Brooklyn Kolache as well as tasty bites from our neighbors Da Ciro, Dannee Thai, Lessen & Hennings, Liberty Pizza, Ludwigs Caterer, Margaret Palca Bakes, Sigmund's Pretzels, Taqueria Tepango and coffee from TB Coffee House.
