Date: May 16, 2019
Time: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Event Description:


Join Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels (YMOW) for our Spring 2019 fundraiser, Meals on Heels, from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 16. This year’s event will again draw its inspiration from the glamour and romance of The Great Gatsby, promising a night filled with 1920s style, the flavors of spring, and of course, everyone’s swankiest shoes.

Guests will gather at the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace, 16 S. Washington St., for a fun, casual yet elegant evening while supporting our mission to feed the homebound elderly and medically fragile of Ypsilanti.
This glamorous evening celebrates the style of the 1920s while showcasing the flavors and colors of spring through a collection of live demonstrations. Learn to craft a spring cocktail, cook up a seasonal treat or create a one-of-a-kind floral arrangement, all while enjoying food, drinks and the knowledge that you’re helping to provide meals for your most vulnerable neighbors in Ypsilanti.
Attire for the evening is black and gold or business casual.
The night will include:
  • Craft beers
  • Wine
  • Hearty but healthy appetizers featuring seasonal ingredients
  • Live music by Event Jazz, led by Rob Crozier
  • Wine and whiskey pull
  • Silent auction of rare whiskeys
Enjoy live Farmers Market-themed demonstrations by:
  • Master Mixologist Eric Farrell, co-owner of The Bar at 327 Braun Court
  • Chef Julie Wiess of Zingerman’s Delicatessen
  • Floral artist Hyojin Bae
