Sip and Savour - Charlotte Event

Today I'm very excited to tell you about an upcoming Charlotte event.  I'm always on the prowl for fun community events to check out on weekends when I'm not working.  While I enjoy a range of activities - from yoga in the park to outdoor concerts - I get especially excited about anything related to food.  Sip and Savour is an event in my own backyard which combines local Myers Park art galleries, dining and drinking from local restaurants, live entertainment, fundraising for a great cause.  

Here's how the event works:
Purchase a ticket for $35 in advance or $40 at the door.  Your ticket earns you admission to four separate art galleries, each of which will have a selection of gourmet food, wine, and entertainment.  Check out the list of the fantastic Charlotte restaurants that will be featured!  You can browse the event details section of the website to plan your gallery crawl and discover which restaurants will be providing bites at each gallery.

All proceeds from the night benefit Melissa's Voice Foundation, a charitable organization with the purpose to raise awareness of eating disorders and provide educational and financial support to individuals and families in need.  The organization was developed by Lynn Dreyer, whose sister Melissa lost her battle with an eating disorder.  I personally had the opportunity to talk to Lynn and could truly sense the immense passion she has for this event and the Foundation.

After reading about the incredible evening that is in store on Saturday, September 21st, I see no way possible for you to miss out on this event.  Last year, tickets for the evening's festivities sold out in advance.  Do yourself a favor and click here to reserve your ticket for Sip and Savour - it's a charitable night not to be missed!
