The Advisory Council of the Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce is hosting a special guest bartending event Thursday, Nov. 29, from 6 p.m. until 9 pm at Gallo Ristorante (5 Grove Street, Ridgefield) benefitting Rides for Ridgefield. Guest bartenders will be First Selectman Rudy Marconi, Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kim Bova and Ridgefield Advisory Council President Christine Mullen.

The Advisory Council is a group of professionals from various industries devoted to serving the community through collaborative events and programs, such as the Future Leaders at the Boys and Girls Club and speaking events at the Ridgefield Library.

Rides for Ridgefield has, for the past five years, been ensuring Ridgefield seniors and those with mobility disabilities have access to transportation that is affordable, acceptable to the rider, adaptable to the rider needs, and allows access to all the activities and services that are needed to maintain quality of life. 

In support of Rides for Ridgefield, Gallo Ristorante is donating all cash and credit card tips from the event, as well as 10% of bar and food sales to diners who mention Rides for Ridgefield.
