Bost’s mission is to be a community of people supporting individuals with disabilities and behavioral health needs to meet their life goals. As the needs of those we serve grow, so do the services we offer. Funding for innovative therapy and learning options, expanded art programs, transportation, new technology, or building renovations isn’t always available through traditional means. That is why Grape Escapes, our annual fundraiser, was created over twenty years ago and is still going strong today. Those we serve still need us and we still need YOU!
Grape Escapes 2024 will be held March 1, from 6 to 9 pm at the ACHE Research Institute located at 1000 Fianna Way in Fort Smith. The cocktail-style fundraiser allows guests to sample a huge selection of wines from around the world while enjoying delicacies from many local eateries. We are excited for the return of the cigar bar by Discount Tobacco and expanded beer garden!
Included with your Grape Escapes ticket is entry to the ArTy Afterglow Party from 9 to 11pm! This unique Art Show and Sale offers guests the chance to mingle with artists in an upbeat environment. Entertainment by the Mixtapes will keep you moving while enjoying sweet treats, coffee, and a cash bar.
In addition to supporting Bost, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the excellent catering services, dining options, wines, and beer available right here in our hometown! Be sure to bookmark grapeescapes.org or hold on to your event program as it will prove to be a fantastic resource as you plan all your upcoming events. The sponsors, restaurants, caterers, breweries, distributors, and wineries that participate in Grape Escapes are nothing short of amazing.
Tickets, which are $150 each, can be purchased online at grapeescapes.org, or by calling 479-652-4553. All attendees must provide a valid ID at the main event and the after-party verifying age. Put on your favorite party clothes and join us for a night of fun benefiting Bost!
Community support doesn’t begin and end with Grape Escapes! Consider Bost if you have an open position that could be filled by one of the adults in our Work Development Program. Think of Bost when you have a friend or family member looking for a job. We are here for those we serve and their families in the community, but we need YOU!
All funds raised by Grape Escapes will be used LOCALLY to fund critical services and supports for individuals with disabilities.
