Sip, Savor and Shop Fundraiser for Rochester Schools Foundation Nov. 14


Sip, Savor and Shop Fundraiser for Rochester Schools Foundation Nov. 14

Rochester Hills, MI- Each year the event grows with new and unique vendors attracting more attendees to stroll through and shop while sipping their favorite beverage and enjoying delicious appetizers from local restaurants.

The seventh annual Sip, Savor and Shop fundraiser will be hosted on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the Forestre Banquet Center, 1919 Star Batt Drive, Rochester Hills.  Adults, 21 and over, are invited to an all-inclusive, fun-filled evening for a great cause.

Since its inception, event organizers, Suzanne Tedesco and Jennifer Donovan, always had a passion to give back to Rochester Community Schools. “We have grown our raffle and silent auction prizes to value more than $20,000 with thanks to our many generous donors! Our fabulous prizes include event tickets, restaurant gift certificates, salon and spa treatments, sports memorabilia, jewelry, gift baskets, fitness packages, vacation stays and much, much more,” said Donovan.

“With more than 35 select vendors, the event is a great opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping while having a fun evening out with friends,” said Tedesco.

The first 100 attendees will receive gift bags. Admission is $25 per person or 5 for $100, if purchased by Oct. 31. Prices will increase Nov. 1 to $30 per person through Nov. 8, after which and until Nov. 13, admission will be $35 per person. Due to an overwhelming response from the community, no admissions will be sold at the door. Admission includes assorted beverages, appetizers, an opportunity to shop unique vendors, and the chance to win amazing silent auction and raffle prizes (raffle tickets sold at the event).

“We are pleased to be able to partner with such a great group of small and independent business owners to enhance the Foundation’s mission,” said RCS Foundation Director Lori Grein.  “We look forward to another successful event filled with lots of fun.”

“The proceeds donated in prior years have supported grant requests allowing our teachers and staff to enhance the teaching and learning environment for our students,” said RCS Foundation Coordinator Joann Beydoun. “The RCS Foundation truly appreciates Suzanne and Jennifer’s passion and commitment to organize this event and support the students and staff throughout the district.”
