6th Annual Spring-Tacular Success!

6th Annual Spring-Tacular Success!

Thank you for making the 6th annual Spring-Tacular, food & beverage tasting event, presented by the Counseling & Assessment Clinic of Worcester, LLC a success! The room was filled with over 300 guests, 23 tasting stations from local area restaurants, breweries, and wineries and 55 silent auction items. All proceeds raised from this event directly impact the women and children of Abby’s House. Because of your generosity you raised $85,000 which will help to transform the lives of women who are at risk of being homeless in our community – thank you!

“My journey is not what I thought it would be, but it’s my journey, and it’s taken me to some pretty amazing places and I’ve met some pretty amazing people…Abby’s House was there for me and gave me a safe haven and a bright future,” Jackie Williams, Board Member and Past Abby’s House Resident.
