Let's celebrate the 7th annual Imbibe together! This is a two-day event to raise money for Family Promise of Lawrence:
Our 7th annual Imbibe has moved to Sunday, April 11th 2-5 pm. If you've already purchased a ticket, it will still be valid at this event.
We'll have a special winemaker dinner where we'll enjoy a perfectly paired meal with five courses and an array of fine wines from Foris at J Wilson's. Our special guest winemaker Stephanie Pao will tell us all about her wines.
August 23rd we'll host a tasting event with over 120 wines to sample as well as food from original Lawrence restaurants. There will also be a raffle with some awesome prizes-including a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 10 year!
We will be pouring tons of wine, eating tons of food, and (hopefully) raising TONS of money for an amazing cause!
IMBIBE is an event to benefit:
ABOUT FAMILY PROMISE
To date, the national organization now called Family Promise has established 180 affiliates in 42 states, using the services of more than 150,000 volunteers and 6000 congregations. They provide shelter, meals, and housing and job placement support to more than 49,000 homeless family members annually, 60 percent of them children. Witnessing firsthand the obstacles that low-income families face, Family Promise leaders and volunteers have been motivated to do more. Affiliates have seized the initiative to create additional community programs, such as housing renovation, job training, and healthcare programs. As a way of helping at-risk families avoid homelessness, Family Promise began training volunteers to advise and mentor families, helping them achieve and maintain self-sufficiency. To foster a greater understanding of the root causes of homelessness, Family Promise launched the Just Neighbors educational curriculum. And although 41 states and 150,000 volunteers now define the breadth and depth of the organization, Karen’s mandate remains in place…if you can strengthen one family you can strengthen a nation.
