The Cheers for Ädelbrook Wine Tasting Fundraiser was able to bring in over $30,000 for the children and young adults with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders served in their programs. There were almost 300 tickets sold and well over 200 guests who attended. The money raised will provide additional communication devices to students and residents. These devices are critical in helping nonverbal individuals express their wants and needs, and end their isolation.
Part of the evening included the presentation of the David J. Carlson Humanitarian Award to Jeff King, a long-time supporter and volunteer with Ädelbrook. A Southington resident and employee of GeoInsight in Middletown, Jeff brings great enthusiasm and energy to all Ädelbrook events.
Special thanks to Willowbrook Spirit Shoppe who provided the many wonderful wine, beer and spirit vendors for the tastings, and Sweet Harmony who donated all the delicious desserts for the evening. Without the major sponsors this great community event would not be possible. Ädelbrook would like to thank American Eagle Financial Credit Union, Cromwell Energy, GKN Aerospace, Delta-T Group, Covenant Village, John Boyle Company, Witham Construction, Marcum, LLP, Middletown Toyota, May, Bonee & Clark, RTW, Six Degrees, GeoInsight, Minuteman Press – Wethersfield, Liberty Bank and Harding Construction.
