Community Cares, a nonprofit organization that supports families in medical crisis, will host a Care Walk and Harvest Festival on October 8 at Tilly Foster Farm in Brewster. This family-friendly event will include a 10:30 a.m. fun walk (9:30 a.m. registration), hayrides, a pumpkin patch, touch-a-truck and local vendors.

The event will be an opportunity to acknowledge the organization’s 2018 honorees: survivors of the year Alex and Marialisa Zywotchenko, outstanding fundraiser of the year Mahopac Teacher's Association and sponsor of the year Aversano’s restaurant.
Vendor tables are still available for $50. Festival vendors are asked to consider donating a basket or gift certificate for a raffle.
