Woodbury faith communities will once again welcome guests to their fellowship halls for the 2nd annual town-wide “Neighbors for Neighbors” Progressive Dinner to be held on Sunday, Sept. 17, from 4 to 8 p.m. Proceeds from the event will support the Woodbury Food Bank, fuel and crisis assistance programs of the Community Services Council of Woodbury.
Participants will visit one faith community site for appetizers and a second for dinner before all guests come together for desserts and a silent auction concluding the evening at the Woodbury Senior/Community Center. The event has been made possible by volunteers from participating faith communities including Beth El Synagogue, First Congregational Church, Mattatuck Unitarian Universalist Society, North Congregational Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Prince of Peace Parish and Woodbury United Methodist Church.
“Beyond the importance of this event in supporting our assistance programs,” CSCW President Bob Taylor observed, “the ‘Neighbors for Neighbors’ dinner holds special meaning in bringing together participants from many faith traditions and personal backgrounds in common purpose to serve the well-being of our neighbors in need and in joyful celebration of our strength as a community of compassion.”
Tickets are $25 per person and will go on sale August 13. New for this year is the invitation for individuals and businesses to “Sponsor a Seat”; sponsorship donations will allow CSCW clients to attend the dinner and support CSCW food bank services for Woodbury residents year round. Ticket reservations and sponsorship donations may be arranged by contacting Wrey Trompeter at (203) 263-6240 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
