Tickets are still available for the Thursday, August 4th dinner to raise funds for the non-denominational non-profit organization Acts 4 Ministry, Inc., serving the Greater Waterbury region.

The dinner begins at 6:30 PM, and the cost is $35 per person.
Acts 4 Ministry, Inc. assists individuals and families who have suddenly lost their homes to a fire, flood, or other unexpected devastation or upsetting life event. These individuals and families are invited to visit Acts 4 Ministry’s 1713 Thomaston Avenue boutique shop in Waterbury to personally select, at no charge, clothing, dishes, glassware, furnishings, and items to meet other basic needs. The organization is dedicated to building relationships with people while providing them with the basics of daily living needs.
John Bishop, Acts 4 Ministry, Inc. Board of Directors Chairman, stated, “Acts 4 Ministry is proud to partner in outreach efforts with many of Greater Waterbury’s fine organizations. We continue to be especially pleased to join forces with one of Waterbury’s most well-known and highly esteemed event destinations.
We are always very grateful for a second opportunity in 2022 to work with the Ponte Club and the Club’s Secretary Nick Perugini and his team. We have no doubt that they will once again all help to make the August 4th fundraiser a great success in fulfilling our mission to the people of our area.”
Ponte Club Secretary Nick Perugini commented, “For more than 30 years the Ponte Club has held monthly dinners and supported multiple organizations throughout the Waterbury area. Our mission is to help people who are helping people in the community. Acts 4 Ministry is an organization that fulfills our mission by running these fundraisers and ultimately helping people with basic day-to-day living needs.”
