bottle and bottega

Like so many other parents who have disabled adult children, I started to visit various agencies and came across Rimland. Although letting my daughter live somewhere else was maybe the hardest choice in my life, I knew it was the best decision for her. Within the first day she was with Rimland, she adjusted so well. Every time I visit her at her group home, she is smiling and happy. I can never thank Rimland enough for the kind loving care they provide.

Bottle and Bottega of Evanston, a wine and art entertainment studio offering a fun, unique alternative to an ordinary night out, has partnered with Rimland for the holiday season! In November, the studio hosted a community-focused art give-back event, with a portion of the proceeds going to Rimland Services.

From November 18-November 28, Bottle and Bottega guests got creative and collaborated on a community mural as they mingled and enjoyed wine.

On December 5, representatives of Bottle and Bottega presented the community mural to Rimland’s Executive Director Carolyn Keel, Associate Executive Director Tina Jones, and Associate Executive Director of Compliance Bridget Crump, who also added a few finishing touches to the artwork. The completed painting will hang in the reception area at Rimland’s Developmental Training and administrative headquarters.

One part artistic adventure and one part cocktail party, Bottle and Bottega is great for get-togethers with friends, creative corporate retreats, or any special events. Evanston is just one of their studios. They have multiple studios in Chicago, in the state of Illinois, and throughout the country.
