Sip & Shop 6th Annual In-Person Event to Benefit Circle of Care

November 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm


Sip & Shop, the annual shopping fundraiser held to benefit Circle of Care, is returning to Wilton as an in-person event at a larger venue than before, the WEPCO church complex at 48 New Canaan Rd. The event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 18, from 10 a.m.–8 p.m. Once again, 100% of event proceeds will be donated to support children with cancer and their families.

Organized yearly by Wilton stylist and makeup artist Janet Montalbano of Let’s Make Up, the 2021 Sip & Shop, will charge an admission fee of $20 per person since this year’s goal is to raise over $25,000 for Circle of Care. Last year’s online event raised $15,000, so Montalbano is hopeful that an in-person event will raise substantially more.

Each visitor to Sip & Shop will receive a complimentary raffle ticket, making them eligible for an assortment of prizes. In addition, there will be a $100 raffle for a chance to win a fantastic vacation at Lake Norman in North Carolina, one of the largest and most beautiful man-made lakes in the state, donated by a Wilton family (restrictions apply). There will also be a 50-50 raffle, ($20 for one ticket or $50 for three). The drawing will be held at 7:30 p.m.

Montalbano has brought on a co-host this year, Justin Baiad, of Justin Baiad Photography. Other event sponsors include: Silver — Wilton Smiles, AJC Contracting, Berkshire Hathaway, and Fleurish Florals; Gold — Keller Williams Fiona Porter; and Platinum — Mary Aherns Hair for Good. The band Cagi & Syd will perform well-known tunes, and light bites and beverages will be provided by Rye Ridge Deli, Uncle Leo’s, Dave’s Planet Pizza and Susan Kane Catering.

The vendors at the event include: “B” Chic, Blue Star Bazaar, Burkewood Road, Emmy Star Designs, Erin Deluca Jewelry, Four Colors USA, Fiona Porter Homes, Bows By Ria, Thread & Knot, Four Legged and Fabulous, Frieda Rothman, Hair For Good, Imaginariums, Nancy’s Color Studio, Nina Kalola Jewelry, Send a Smile Cards and Gifts, Szetheday, Southern Yankee, Wild Bloom Skin Care, Wilton Smiles, Arbonne, Nayar’s Gifts, Tiffany Catalano Artwork, Your CBD Store, and Zero Waste.

“I am confident we will reach our goal this year with so many positive changes, particularly with the addition of my talented co-sponsor, Justin. And I know everyone wants to support our local vendors who support Circle of Care by coming to our event and donating funds for a booth to showcase their wares. There is no better way to shop for holiday gifts,” Montalbano said.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite online.
