One year ago, Pacific House emergency shelter began a Young Adult Program in response to the significant number of young adults they were seeing coming into the shelter. These young men, ages 18-24, have nowhere to live and are currently calling the shelter home. Whether they’re still in high school, doing their homework at the shelter each day, or getting help with support services, the Pacific House Young Adult Program connects these young people with housing, employment, education and services that can prevent a lifetime of homelessness. Several have made the journey from homelessness to the Young Adult Program and onto college.

Guests will leave the event having sampled delicious food and desserts from some of the area’s finest restaurants, bakeries and chocolatiers including: A Chef’s Choice, Bad Louie’s Fudge, Chocolate Works Darien, Dimare's Pastry, Filicori Zecchini, Izzi B’s Allergen Free Bakery, Le Rouge, Little Pub, Longford’s Ice Cream, Pasta Vera, The Granola Bar, Tomatillo.
