The less fortunate in Beaumont rely heavily on the many programs Some Other Place has to offer. Founded in 1968 by the local religious community to address the unmet emergency needs of local residents, Some Other Place was created to give people looking for assistance somewhere to turn when they were told by other entities to go to “some other place” for relief.

Now, Some Other Place will turn to the community for help at the 15th annual A Tasting for Some Other Place fundraiser Tuesday, Aug. 15, from 5-7 p.m.
