On a golden sunny day in June, almost 400 supporters and guests gathered at the stunning gardens of the Historic Laurabelle A. Robinson House overlooking the Arroyo and Colorado Bridge to celebrate and raise funds for AbilityFirst.

Over 20 top restaurants, cocktail bars, wineries, and breweries were scattered throughout the verdant grounds serving nibbles and sips of delicious comestibles. Guests were encouraged to wander the grounds to sample and savor all the delights on offer.

Proceeds from this year’s AbilityFirst Food & Wine Festival directly benefited AbilityFirst which has targeted programming to help individuals successfully transition from childhood to adult life; providing employment preparation, training, and experience; building social connections and independence; and offering both their participants and their caregivers an opportunity to refresh and recharge through their recreational activities.

AbilityFirst’s person-centered programs empower individuals to discover what is important to them in their lives, and to develop the skills that are important for them to achieve their goals.
