PLAINFIELD, NJ - Homefirst Interfaith Housing and Family Services will host a Wine and Dine to raise money for its continuing fight against poverty and homelessness. The event will be held on Thursday, July 25 at Old York Cellars, 80 Old York Road, in Ringoes, NJ from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Homefirst has been an advocate for the homeless in Union County since 1986 when it began as a small program providing shelter, food and other services.  As the needs of the community grew, Homefirst expanded to be able to transition families from shelters to their own homes. Today, Homefirst offers a variety of services including family support, homeless prevention and housing case management.

Tickets to the Wine and Dine are only $70 each and include six wine tastings, a buffet dinner and entertainment from a live jazz band.  Most important, your ticket purchase will help a family avoid eviction, foreclosure or shut-off of their utilities.  When you buy a ticket to the Wine and Dine, you will help make sure people have access to stable housing, medical and social case management, parent advocacy workshops, and much more.
