Middletown, CT – Consulting Engineering Services (CES) hosted a pub crawl in Downtown Middletown and was able to raise over $1,500 for The Amazing Grace Food Pantry, also located in Downtown.
2014 marks 20 years of Engineering Excellence for CES and they are celebrating by hosting several employee and client events throughout the year. During The CES Pub Crawl for Hunger more than 50 CES employees, friends and family walked from bar to bar while enjoying a night out of fun, laughter, drinks and good food! Participating locations included Keagan’s Irish Pub, La Boca Mexican Restaurant, Mezzo Grille and First & Last Tavern.
CES has been located in Middletown for more than 15 years and wanted to do something to give back to the community in which they call home; which is why they chose to have all proceeds of the event benefit the Amazing Grace Food Pantry of Middletown.
The Amazing Grace Food Pantry is a program of St. Vincent de Paul which offers food free of charge to more than 1,000 families each month. “It is only because we have such awesome community partners that we can continue to meet the need,” said Ron Krum, Executive Director of St. Vincent de Paul Middletown. The food given to families is collected from organized food drives, financial contributions from various organizations as well as through St. Vincent de Paul’s Families Feeding Families program, in which families and businesses commit to provide certain food items each month.
Middletown has a great sense of community and CES is proud to be a part of it. The CES Pub Crawl for Hunger was a great success through employee and local restaurant participation. CES plans to hold more events to benefit the community in the future.
