Children and Families First hosted A Taste for Art Oct. 11 at Baywood Greens. Artists and restaurants came together to present a unique culinary and creative art experience. Live music by No Byscuyts filled the air while 16 Mile sampled beer and Atlantic Liquors poured spirits. About 220 people attended the event, and $15,000 in sponsorships was raised. Once totaled, the final funds raised will top last year's event.

Children & Families First provides services to thousands of people across Delaware each year in support of its mission to help families develop solutions to meet challenges and embrace opportunity. Programs offer social, educational, and mental health services.
