May 20th - Walk Against Hunger
Register now for the 2023 Connecticut Foodshare Walk Against Hunger. The Walk will take place on Saturday, May 20th at Dunkin’ Park — home of the Hartford Yard Goats! The event starts at 8:00 AM and is over before Noon.
The Walk is a fun-filled event with live entertainment and giveaways, hosted by local media personalities Renee DiNino and Scot Haney. Join us as we continue to bring awareness to the issue of food insecurity in Connecticut. The Walk not only benefits the work of Connecticut Foodshare, it also benefits amazing partner programs like the Amazing Grace Food Pantry, right here in Middletown! These partners help us serve the estimated 1 in 10 residents and 1 in 8 children who struggle with hunger.
Register as individual, join a team or create your own! It’s easy! Your fundraising efforts will help us move towards sharing a healthy community, free of hunger!
Important Note: When registering yourself or your team, be sure to select St. Vincent de Paul Middletown as your benefitting agency. That way, 100% of what you raise stays right here in our community!
Click the link to register! The first 100 walkers who register will get a new St. Vincent de Paul Middletown t-shirt!
May 31st - Open Your Heart 2023
Tickets are available now for Open Your Heart 2023! This year’s event has a few things in common with previous years, such as great food choices from 16 local restaurants, wonderful beer and wine selections from Connecticut Beverage Mart, a fun raffle and great company. St. Clements Castle and Marina in Portland, a wonderful venue, is also hosting us again. So, what’s new? Fewer speeches and more entertainment! We’ve secured the Flying Ivories, a nationally renowned piano dueling team out of New York City to lead sing-alongs, to play requests and entertain you throughout the evening.
This is our main annual fundraiser! Our pianists will be taking Requests for Tips, and have graciously offered to donate all tips from the evening back to our organization. Make sure to bring some additional funds for the raffle and for your music requests! We think you’ll like the raffle prizes this year!

We’re looking forward to seeing you on May 31st!
