Net proceeds from this event go to event co-host Family Promise of Bergen County, an outstanding organization dedicated to alleviating the plight of the homeless in Bergen County. Families with dependent children make up the largest and fastest growing segment of the homeless population. Family Promise is the only organization in Bergen County providing services and shelter to working homeless families.
Since 1986, Family Promise (formerly the Interreligious Fellowship for the Homeless) has played a pivotal role in serving thousands of Bergen County’s most vulnerable citizens: homeless, hungry, and needy families and individuals. The initial program, the Overflow Shelter, housed homeless individuals at local congregations when the County Shelter was full. The Interreligious Fellowship (IRF) became Family Promise in February, 2010.
To meet the needs of working, homeless families, the IRF provided a Family Shelter at St. Cecilia’s High School in Englewood called Fellowship House. Today, Family Promise shelters homeless families through a network of churches and synagogues around Bergen County. Family Promise is a National organization, with 182 affiliates in 41 states including 17 in New Jersey.
Since 1991, the Family Promise Walk -In Dinner Program has been providing dinner to approximately 150 people in the community 365 days a year. Dinner is provided and served by dedicated volunteers at the Bergen County Health and Human Services Center in Hackensack.
Admission to the festival includes three hours of tasting over 150 expertly curated wines; farmstead artisan cheeses, crostini, ficelles, baguettes, crudite/dips, selection of hot pastas, and chef’s choice passed desserts; and a live jazz performance from Grammy-nominated guitarist Gil Parris.
