MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX – It was difficult to raise funds for local NGOs during VV. Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during the annual “180 Minutes” wine festival, which raises significant funding for programs that serve clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Bridgewood Farms (BFF) wanted to help with operating costs and create an easy and enjoyable way for individuals to practice local Downtown businesses. Sunday’s Funday Stroll to take advantage of the BWF was created to explore the newly opened locations in downtown Conro to enjoy the day.
A Sunday Explosion Tour through downtown Conro is Sunday, September 19 from 2:00 – 5:00, with wine and special cocktails from the participating venues. Tastings will be available at BE Winery, The Ferm Meadery, The Corner Pub, 202 Main and The Red Brick Tavern. The Lano Estacado wine is served at the corner pub and the Bernhart wine is tasted in a red brick.
Each tasting site highlights one of the 5 programs offered at Bridgewood Farms: Adult Continuing Education, Ceramics / Creative Arts, Pre-Vocational Training, Health and Physical Education and Gardening. On Sundays, customers and families will be on hand to learn about the many fun and educational programs they can attend while participating in the Bridwood Farms.
An entry-level desk will be set up at Simonton for those who have paid a $ 50 tasting fee until September 17 to pick up wrists and maps during the event. Tickets are available for an additional $ 10 during the event. As the audience travels for 2 tastes, each place will receive a stamp on the map. At the end of the tasting tour, attendees return the maps to the registration table to receive a custom-made wine glass and special wine.
Brownle jewelry hosts a quiet auction of unique handicrafts made by mentally and developmentally disabled clients. Branding Metal Customs will accommodate a winery ($ 25 each). The main street vendors will be open and 20% of all purchases will be returned to BFF during the event.
Explore the taste of cake at the Vernele New Orleans bakery and cafe and enjoy special cocktails at 202. Honorable Cafe shares food samples in many places. Three food trucks will be parked in Simonton, on the mainland, 202 main parking lot, and on the main street in front of the courthouse. Certified food trucks participating include Brandon Barbeque and French Corner with sweet and salty crepes. All proceeds to the event will go back to purchasing supplies and educational materials for programs offered by Broadwood Farms.

Andy Goodman, general manager of Broadwood Farms, enjoys sharing information about the 54-year-old agency with the community. “It is safe to say that much has changed in Bridwood Farms since last year. While fundraising efforts have hampered our efforts, it has also revealed new opportunities in the city center of Conro, such as next Sunday’s fundraiser. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and all our unique activities in these wonderful places. I am so excited to share and show off all of our daily programs and special friends at Bridgewood Farms! ”
