The Cornwall Food Fest is a fundraiser for Beyond 21. Admission is a $2 bracelet with 100% of proceeds going to Beyond 21 (children are free). At Beyond 21 we partner with adults with a developmental disability to learn their dreams and help them gain the skills they need and make the connections they need in community to achieve their dreams. We are Dream Chasers! For every 50 people who purchase a bracelet we are able to provide our participants with one week of community based activities including swimming, dance, exercise, and bowling, activities they may otherwise not be able to attend! Your entry fee is the gateway to community integration allowing our participants to be able to achieve their dreams. Join us on August 17th in the downtown and you can be a Dream Chaser too!
