Taste of Summer

The Taste of Summer is Rise for baby and family’s most significant fundraising event of the year. The Taste is a fun-filled event which supports our work helping parents help their babies, one family at a time.

The Taste of Summer brings together the region’s most prestigious wineries, breweries, distilleries, restaurants, caterers, and many other vendors for one big tasting extravaganza. The event will also host a silent auction with Boston Sports memorabilia from KBK sports and a raffle with many items that are graciously donated by local businesses and individuals.

The event has grown throughout the years and had well over 250 people in attendance this past year. This year’s event will be held at the Keene Country Club on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. We hope you will join us for the fun and to raise money to support Rise so we may continue to impact families with young children with disabilities and developmental delays!
