The final day of 20 Towns in Twenty Days took Channel 3 to Milford.

Receiving the $1,000 on Wednesday was the Rape Crisis Center of Milford, which works to eliminate sexual violence through education and to help victims to regain control of their lives.

The center also received a $500 gift card from PC Richard and Son.

The organization serves six neighboring communities and last year they helped 528 clients.

"Our funding all goes to the victim, there is no charge for any of the services that we provide so the victim can come here once a week, twice a week and there's no charge," said Antonio Vitti, of the Rape Crisis Center of Milford.

Channel 3 stopped at a local hangout known for all kinds of soup, plus the kindness of the staff behind the counter.

For 27 years, Bobette's Take Out has been serving homemade chowder, stews and all kinds of soups.

They have won awards at the Newport Chowder Cook Off, from Yankee Magazine, and they were even honored for having the friendliest service.

Bobette Moore and her husband opened the restaurant without any cooking experience.

Now she is known for “mussel chowder,” lasagna soup, and on Fridays only you can get lobster bisque.

"We get chunks of lobster in it and it's gone really early but if they call us in the morning, we'll save it for them,” Moore said.

The small take-out restaurant on Boston Post Road also serves sandwiches and salads.

It was perfect weather for Wednesday’s stop in Milford, where they like to say “it’s a small city with a big heart.”

Milford has the longest coastline in Connecticut with 17 miles stretching into the harbor.

"I think that this place, especially, seems to be kind of out of the way - they don't really understand that we got this jewel here so it's nice,” said Jeff and Maria Proud, of Milford.

The downtown area is lined with many local businesses, and people can spend the day walking around or enjoying the second longest town green in New England.
