Shop & Stroll event supports efforts of Women United in United Way

For the second year, the United Way of the Big Bend’s Women United Affinity Group is gearing up to dazzle customers at their springtime fundraising event called “Shop & Stroll.” This event, formerly known as Dress Down & Dine, will take place in the Market District from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 24.

Local Tallahassee businesses will come together to offer special discounts and raffle items, including a chance to win a gold and diamond necklace courtesy of Hearth & Soul.

Funds raised from ticket sales help support the initiatives of Women United and United Way of the Big Bend in their mission to lift women and families out of poverty.

“Shop and Stroll is such a great event in that it’s really about a community supporting the community. We raise funds and awareness for United Way programs, while supporting so many fabulous local Market Street merchants and participating vendors across our city,” said Angie Sipple, President of Women United.

Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance at uwbb.org/shopstroll/ for $25 and includes exclusive offers and a chance to win raffle items at participating retailers. Tickets can be purchased the night of the event at the registration table located across from Skin Science (between Pink Narcissus and Jos. A. Bank) for $30.

Additional information on special offers including the Spring Savings Box, Bling Ring and VIP package can be found on the website.

Over 19 vendors will participate, including: Skin Science, Hearth & Soul, The Wine House, Chic Verte, Black Fig, Gypsy Rose Boutique, Coton Colors, Momo’s Pizza, Market Street Liquors, Midtown Reader, Poco Vino and more. Shop & Stroll is sponsored by Capital City Bank, Tallahassee Community College, Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, Trulieve and Skin Science.

“Shop & Stroll is such a fun event that encapsulates what Tallahassee is all about while providing a chance to shop with friends and support United Way and our amazing vendors in the Market District and around Tallahassee. This event promises to be a fun night! said Katherine Boland, president of Women United Shop & Stroll Event.
