On October 25th we invite you to join us for the 26th Men Who Cook event online! Over the past 26 years this event has become our largest annual fundraiser that helps support our Center and the services we provide to women and families on the CT Shoreline. This this year we have partnered with nine local restaurants who are offering wonderful to-go dinners on the night of the event and an exciting keynote speaker who has an inspirational message to share. During these uncertain times we can create a brighter future together. Click here to learn more.
