Ellerhorst Russell Insurance Agency Gives Back to the Community!

The good folks at Ellerhorst Russell Insurance Agency recently partnered with Westfield Insurance to purchase a 4-H Club pig at the Randolf Fair and donate it to NGCC!  

We are grateful to Mark Ellerhorst and his staff along with Hunter Andel of the Steakmakers 4-H Club who raised the pig.  The nearly 90 pounds of pork will go a long way to help us provide for our clients.

What a great night!

Our 2nd annual Farm to Table Nibble & Sip was held on July 29th at Candlelight Winery and it was a great night for sipping!  We were blessed with beautiful weather and enjoyed a delicious menu featuring locally sourced foods, craft beers & wine.  The evening also included a themed basket auction with chances to win lots of great prizes.

Farm to Table Food & Wine Tasting


Our first annual Farm to Table Food & Wine Tasting event held on Saturday July 30th at Candlelight Winery was a huge success.  Almost 100 guests braved the downpour and enjoyed a delicious menu designed to showcase locally sourced foods along with craft beers and wine.  The evening's entertainment and basket auction were also a big hit.  We want to thank all of our sponsors, everyone who donated food or auction items, our volunteers and especially everyone that came out to support the Cupboard!  Mark your calendars for next year's Farm to Table scheduled for Saturday, July 29th.
