Have Some Food and Some Laughs
A comedy dinner "Laugh Your Way to Better Health" to benefit the Danbury Farmers' Market Community Collaborative will be held on Thursday, May 8th at 7pm at Two Steps Downtown Grille at 5 Ives St. in downtown Danbury.
It'll be a three course menu filled with laughs thanks to comedienne Christine O'Leary.
The Danbury Farmers' Market is managed by CityCenter Danbury and directed by public health nutritionist Peggy Zamore. And mark this down, the Danbury Farmers' Market opens on Friday, June 27th at Kennedy Place.
Tickets are $50 and can be purchased by calling CityCenter Danbury at 203-792-1711.
Not only is the dinner a fun evening in support of an important community resource, it also marks the launch of a matching voucher program for low income veterans, a pilot project of the Connecticut Department of Agriculture and the only program of its kind in the country! A local philanthropist and an ongoing Farmers' Market supporter, in addition to a generous donation, has offered to match dollar-for-dollar additional contributions up to $5,000.
The Danbury Farmers' Market is committed to making fresh Connecticut-grown produce affordable for SNAP recipients, seniors, women, infants, children, and other food-insecure community members, and public support guarantees that its services continue to grow exponentially each season.
If you can't attend the benefit, donations may also be made by check, payable to DFMCC and mailed to CityCenter Danbury, 186 Main Street, Danbury CT 06810.
