Bost, Inc. supports individuals with disabilities and behavioral health needs in meeting their life goals through their vision of communities working together and empowering individuals to improve their overall health and achieve greater independence. Do South reached out to Jeanne Hill, Director of Marketing & Fundraising, to learn more.
One in four adults in America has a disability. In Arkansas, Bost strives to be the provider of choice, offering those with intellectual or developmental disabilities, or mental health needs opportunities for growth, learning, and greater independence throughout their lives.
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 our Grape Escapes fundraiser was created over twenty years ago and is still going strong today. Those we serve still need us and we still need YOU!
We are so pleased Grape Escapes is returning on March 3, 2023, from 6 to 9pm, with MORE than a Vine Affair! We’ve changed venues to the newly remodeled ACHE – Research Institute, located at 1000 Fianna Way in Fort Smith, allowing us to offer a beer garden and outdoor cigar bar, along with the delectable food and wine you’ve come to love. Adding to the fun, we are partnering with ArTs at Bost from 9 to 11pm to bring our guests an “Arty” After-party featuring some special treats and a cash bar!
Tickets, which are $100 each and are limited, can be purchased online at www.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.
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, and wineries that participate in Grape Escapes are nothing short of amazing!
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. Give us a call if you have children’s books or gently used clothing to donate. We are here for those we serve and their families in our 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. For more information about Bost or Grape Escapes, please contact Jeanne Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 479.652.4553.
