2021 Sip & Shop

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


Wilton, CT; November 8, 2021– The huge outpouring of support for Sip & Shop has enabled host Janet Montalbano, of Let’s Make Up, to bring on a co-host this year. She is thrilled to announce her partnership with Justin Baird, of Justin Baird Photography. Janet‘s artistic talents have worked wonders for Fairfield County residents and others for over 30 years, making them look and feel better. Over the past decade, she has offered her services pro-bono doing makeovers for women undergoing cancer treatments, battered women, and others who are trying to reestablish themselves and rejoin the workforce. Janet even received Wilton Magazine’s coveted award as one of the 25 most creative, dedicated, and influential people in Wilton. Her website is www.letsmakeupbyjanetmontalbano.com.
The 2021 Sip & Shop will charge an admission fee of $20.00/per person since Janet’s goal is to raise over $25,000 for Circle of Care. Last year’s online event raised approximately $15,000, so she is hopeful that an in-person event will raise substantially more.

In addition, this year’s function will be moved to a larger venue, the WEPCO Church, located at 48 New Canaan Road in Wilton. Vendors will pay only $200.00 per booth, as compared to $350.00 in previous years, since the space can accommodate so many more people. The event will be held on Thursday, November 18, from 10:00 a.m.– 8:00 p.m. There will be a $100.00 raffle, wherein the participants will have 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, $20.00 for one ticket or $50.00 for three. And, for the first time, each visitor to Sip & Shop will receive a complimentary raffle ticket, making them eligible for an assortment of prizes. The raffles will be held at 7:30 p.m.
Sponsors include Wilton Smiles, “Keeping Teeth Healthy and Bright”, AJC Contracting, Berkshire Hathaway and Fleurish Florals (Silver, $500), Keller Williams Fiona Porter (Gold, $1000), and Mary Aherns – Hair for Good (Platinum, $2,500). The popular band of 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. Additional food vendors will be greatly appreciated.
The vendors are as follows: “B” Chic, Blue Star Bazaar, Burkewood Road, Emmy Star Designs, Erin Deluca Jewelry, Four Colors USA, Fiona Porter Homes, Bows By Ria, Blue Star Bazaar, 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.
Janet says, “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.”
