A Taste for Something Good Raises Over $10,000

Oct 11, 2016

Over 100 people attended A Taste for Something Good on Saturday, October 1, 2016, in support of Household Goods. The Oktoberfest-themed event, which took place at Powers Gallery, in Acton, raised over $10,000 to help Household Goods fulfill its mission.

A Taste for Something Good: Oktoberfest featured brats by Chef Tim Wiechmann of Bronwyn Restaurant and TW Food, Boston; beer from Rapscallion, Acton; German Wines from Colonial Spirits, music by The B3 Kings, and a silent auction. The event was organized by a volunteer committee of local residents including Beth Neeley-Kubacki and Peg Gladstone of Carlisle, Mimi Rutledge of Concord, and Priscilla Gannon of Andover.

“It was encouraging to see so many people united by a common desire to support our mission under one roof,” says Sharon Martens, Executive Director of Household Goods. “This, plus the seasonally appropriate food and drink provided by some of the best local chefs and restaurateurs, the elegant gallery setting of Powers Gallery, and the hard work by the event committee, all contributed to the evening’s success.”

Among the guests was State Representative Cory Atkins, who presented Household Good with a citation for helping so many people in need turn empty houses into homes.
