FillChill2015_851x315

Join the guys behind the bar at Chill Wine Bar in Beacon on Friday, November 20, 2015 all night long for a food drive for HVCS! Help “Fill Chill” with non-perishable food, toiletries and household cleaning products for our emergency food closets. While you’re there, sample craft beers and assorted wines, or grab a cheese platter or something from the panini menu–and with Chill donating a percentage of your tab to HVCS, why not order another? Superior Sounds will provide fun disco beats.

This event is open to everyone, and it happens to fall on Chill’s new LGBT Mixer night (the third Friday of the month). It’s a party for a purpose for all!

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

On Friday, December 12, 2014 Chill Wine Bar in Beacon hosted a food, toy and fund drive to support HVCS’ new Poughkeepsie food pantry. Guests dropped off unwrapped toys and  nonperishable foods, and made cash donations. Chill donated 25% of all sales for the night to HVCS, and that will be matched by a major corporation. Santa Claus himself stopped by to say thanks to our loyal, fun-loving donors and to hand out tokens of appreciation (donated by Elizabeth Arden). All told, we raised more than $500 and collected a carload of food!

Updated:

ARCS would like to express our thanks to Todd Michael Thomas, musical director Jon Breitenbach and Jim and Patrick from Chill Wine Bar for pulling this event together!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Chill Wine Bar, ARCS and Todd Michael Thomas invite you to an evening of love…well, some love and some not-so-full-of-love songs, and some that have nothing to do with Valentine’s Day at all (but the word ‘love’ may pop up in the lyrics). With music direction by Jon Breitenbach.

ARCS will be there at 7 pm, but Chill opens at 5 pm
Show Begins at 8PM
$20 Suggested Donation at the door
All proceeds go to benefit the 2011 Hudson Valley AIDS Walk and ARCS.

Chill is located at 173 Main Street in downtown Beacon. Look for the blue lanterns in the window!

Photos from our "Chill Out" Friendraiser

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Oh Thursday, August 19, 2010 ARCS held another installation in our series of small, casual “Friendraiser” cocktail parties at Chill Wine Bar in Beacon, NY. Over 70 guests gathered at this low-key wine and tapas spot for complimentary cheese platters and freshly-made hummus, and a wine tasting by Lauber Imports. Judith Tulloch entertained us with vocals and guitar for most of the evening, while v0lunteers sold tickets for our “chance auction” raffle. Prizes included a basket of cookies from Crumb Bakery in Beacon, massage services from Hands On Massage & Wellness, passes to Hudson Valley Renegades baseball games, a fall foliage cruise on the River Rose paddleboat, and fine wines donated by Bob Brink and Bill Cole. Mr. Cole made his donation in honor of his uncle Paul Bratton, who passed away from AIDS in 1990. We also gave away Barnes & Noble gift cards provided by Verizon and a CD of Judith Tulloch’s music. ARCS would like to thank Patrick McKenna and Jim Svetz, the owners of Chill, for hosting the event for the second year in a row; volunteers Barbara Bennet, Christopher Emerson, Trina Hiemcke, and Andi Straus; and of course all of our friends and supporters who attended.
