Kismet vs. Taproom

Published: April 29, 2010

MONTPELIER – There's nothing like a little friendly competition for a good cause.

Kismet and Three Penny Taproom, two Montpelier establishments, are going head-to-head to see who can be the fastest to raise $500 in donations for the Children's Garden Project.

The competition is an effort to establish an organic Children's Garden on the grounds of the Children, Youth and Family Services (CYFS) division of Washington County Mental Health on Beckley Hill Road in Barre.

The contest will run from May 2 to May 15, and both businesses will display prominently placed donation jars to encourage customers to make contributions. Due to looming State budget cuts, this project is being run entirely on the steam of volunteers and donations, according to a news release from CYFS.

"The Children's Garden will be a beautiful and nurturing place for children and young adults with emotional, behavioral and developmental challenges…" according to CYFS.
