Nonprofit Bridgewood Farms will launch a new fundraising campaign this Sunday

Like other local nonprofits, the COVID-19 pandemic posed challenges for bridal farms.

Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated by the group’s annual “180 minutes around the world” wine program for 2020 and 2021. The money raised would be an important source of income for programs for clients of intellectual and developmental disabilities in both daily programs and residential programs.

The charity also looked into water well issues after the February cold snap. Fortunately, in the spring, Hiltrandt wells came in and replaced the system at a non-profit.

“It is safe to say that much has changed in Bridwood Farms since last year. While fundraising has hampered the process, it has also created new opportunities, ”said Andy Goodman, executive director of Broadwood Farms.

One of these new fundraising opportunities is the first Sunday fundraiser in downtown Conro. Funds raised will be used to purchase supplies and educational materials for programs on Bridgewood Farms.

Sunday Funeral Home will offer wine tastings and specialty cocktails from downtown Conroe this Sunday from 2pm to 5pm.

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. Three of the five locations opened last year.

Each tasting area highlights one of five programs offered by Breedwood Farms, including Adult Education, Ceramics / Creative Arts, Pre-Vocational Training, Health and Physical Education and Gardening. Customers and their families will be on hand to inform carts on Sunday about the many fun and educational programs in which they participate in the Bridwood Farms.

A check-in desk will be set up on September 17 for those who have paid a $ 50 tasting fee to pick up their wristbands and maps during the event. Tickets are available for an additional $ 10 during the event.

As the audience traveled for two tastes, each place received 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.

Another downtown business is also involved in Sunday Funday Stroll.

Brownley Jewelry hosts a quiet auction of Bridwood Farm customers’ special handmade items. Branding metal custom items cost $ 25 each. The main street vendors will be open and 20 percent of all purchases will go back to charity during the event.
