Upcoming Events


Taste of Spring
Saturday April 30, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Mill River Country Club, Stratford, CT
Taste of Spring is Friends of Appalachia's biggest annual fundraiser. It features a wide variety of beer and wine tasting, live music, delicious appetizers, and fun auctions.

We need each participant (youth and adult) to do the following:
-Submit at least one $25 gift certificate for the "Toolbox" Auction; try to get donated gift certificates. Gift certificates should be "generic" - restaurants, music, home improvement stores, grocery stores, department stores, online retailers, books, automotive, gas, etc.

-Submit at least two "event sponsorships" for Taste of Spring. Depending on the level on donation, the sponsor will receive appropriate levels of advertising.

-Donate items for the silent auction - sports tickets, golf foursomes, jewelry, gift baskets, sports apparel, gourmet foods, electronics, overnight stays, etc.

-Sell tickets to the event ($35 each)

-Sign up to make a gourmet dessert for our live auction (no duplicates allowed)

All auction items (toolbox & silent) need to have a donation form attached so we can properly credit your account and acknowledge the donor.
