Join Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels as we celebrate the glamour of the 1920s at our Spring 2019 event, Meals on Heels. This year’s event will again draw its inspiration from the style and romance of The Great Gatsby, promising a night filled with 1920s fashion, the flavors of spring, and of course, everyone’s swankiest shoes.
Guests will enjoy seasonal hors d'oeuvres, craft beers and wine while learning to craft an 1920s cocktail or a spectacular flower arrangement during the evening's live demonstrations. Live music will be provided by Event Jazz and the evening will feature a wine and spirit pull as well as a silent auction of rare whiskeys.
Meals on Heels will take place at the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace, 16 S. Washington St. Join us for a fun, casual, yet elegant evening while supporting our mission to feed the homebound elderly and medically fragile of Ypsilanti.
The night will include:
- Craft beers
- Hearty but healthy appetizers featuring seasonal ingredients
- Live music by Event Jazz, led by Rob Crozier
- Wine and whiskey pull
- Farmers Market-themed demonstrations
- Silent auction of rare whiskeys
Our goal for this fundraiser is $40,000 - enough to provide 26,000 meals to homebound residents of the Ypsilanti area.
Tickets are $75 each before April 15, $90 after.
