On Thursday, August 7, Vineyard House hosts its 17th Annual Water Tasting by the Sea event to benefit the Island’s only sober living facility. The benefit takes place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Allen Farm in Chilmark, with Livingston Taylor performing.

Construction is underway on a new location in Tisbury to replace the three older homes currently in use. The new location includes two separate residences for men and women specially designed for group living and an administration building that includes space for 12 step meetings and a conference/community room named in honor of Pat Gregory, who served as the Vineyard House treasurer.

Tickets are $100 and are available at vineyardhouse.org, or by calling 508-693-8580.
