Fall Party 2019 – November 3rd

Greetings Belmontonians!  Don’t forget to save the date for this year’s Fall Party.

Place: Corner of Delmar & Velasco
Time: 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Date: Nov. 3, 2019

Fall Party is a great way to meet your neighbors and support your neighborhood. The majority of our proceeds go to support Geneva Heights Elementary.

Confirmed activities include:
• Chili Cook-off
• Brew-Boast
• BACD Bake-off
• Silent Auction (we have lots of great prizes, so come ready to do some holiday shopping!)
• Cork-pull (we have some great bottles, all are a great deal!)

Remember, this event is not only a social event, it’s our neighborhood’s big annual fund raiser. We raise money for a variety of projects, from beautification projects in our neighborhood to efforts to support our local schools.

In addition, you can also help by donating items to the silent auction or in helping us solicit donations for the silent auction. If you are a business owner, or know one that would be willing to contribute, please let us know. For details or to donate to the Silent Auction, contact: Teri Harper.

If you’d like to participate in the Chili Cook-off, please let us know as well. We provide a sterno setup and all the fixin’s, so it’s helpful for us to know how many chili cooks to expect. For details on the Chili cook-off, contact: Kellie Disario

The secret ingredient in this year’s BACD Bake-Off is cinnamon. If you have questions about the bake off, contact Bri Zayac

Questions about the Brew Boast?  Contact Darren Dattalo.

Porch Crawl 2019 – THIS WEEKEND


Please join us this Saturday for Porch Crawl 2019! The date this year is April 13th.

Each street in BACD hosts the neighborhood for an hour. We drink, snack, and mingle. When the hour is up, we move in mass to the next street. We will start on Belmont again this year and make our way to Llano. This year’s theme is Belmont Goes To The Movies.

WHEN:  April 13, 2019    6 pm to 11 pm

COST:  Suggested donation of $10 per person. For your $10, you will receive a BACD wine glass or beer glass and an evening full of fun.  This is not a fundraiser, these donations cover the cost of the event.
For those of you who are new to Porch Crawl, we start on the first street, drink, nosh and socialize for an hour, and then move to the next street and do it all over again.  That’s 5 full hours of fun! Start on Belmont or hop in along the way!

The event is rain or shine, so if it looks like rain, grab your rain gear (we have yet to have anyone melt!).
