Nearly 400 guests celebrated this year’s AbilityFirst Food & Wine Festival at the historic Laurabelle A. Robinson House.
Guests enjoyed delicious dishes and drinks from more than 25 top restaurants, cocktail bars, wineries and breweries.
Neftali Beltran received a standing ovation following a presentation about the ways he has benefited from the College to Career program.
The event raised more than $200,000 for AbilityFirst programs, serving children and adults with developmental disabilities.
The event was presented by Chubb, a property and casualty insurance company, and additional sponsors included Bank of America, GHJ & Advisors, the Hartford and Longo Toyota-Longo Lexus, among others.
