We are so excited to host our 12th annual Holiday Shopping Happy Hour & Tablescapes event, and our 10th time supporting Darien EMS- Post 53!  We estimate that over the years we’ve helped to raise over $50,000, and it’s all thanks to a suggestion by Tami Whittier Nielsen way back in 2012.

Please come and enjoy the festivities and help us to make this year another successful fundraising event.

Tickets are $40 and all inclusive for wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres from Michael Joseph’s Catering, who will have some their renowned hors d’oeuvres being passed by the Posties themselves. Tantalizing truffle mac n cheese tartlets and filet mignon crostini are just some of the delicacies on the menu.

Enjoy a nibble and sip some wine as you stroll our 2023 Winter Wonderland, comprising of 6 country-themed holiday stories. Wander through ‘Germany’ before taking a quick trip over to green “Ireland” before selecting ornaments from our pristine ‘Iceland’ story.

10% of all purchases that evening go to Post 53 AND all attendees receive a 10% discount.

We are thrilled to be working with local designers this year who will create their own magical tablescapes; Krista Fox of Krista Fox Interiors, Sarin Galu of Sarina Galu Interiors, Fiona Leonard of Fiona Leonard Interiors, and Hannah Lebel of Perfectly Placed Organizing.
