Sip & Stroll is Both Virtual & In-Person in 2021!
This year the annual Friends of Arrow Rock Sip & Stroll fundraiser gives you the best of both worlds, with both an exciting virtual auction and a fun-filled in-person event.
It all begins with the Virtual Auction that runs from noon on Saturday, Sept. 11, until noon on Saturday, Sept. 18. Whether you’re a Friend from nearby or far away, you can take part in the bidding and win wonderful items that have been donated especially for this event. If you win an auction item, you can pick it up on the evening of the live event, at the Friends of Arrow Rock office at your convenience, or request to have it shipped to you. Participation in the virtual auction is free and we make it easy for everyone to join in!
On Saturday, Sept. 18, we return to the in-person version of Sip & Stroll. This year, you’ll be invited inside four beautiful Arrow Rock homes and enjoy wine or soft drinks at each stop. You may tour the homes at your leisure beginning at 3:30 p.m. (Pick up your map that afternoon at the Boardwalk Canteen at 300 Main Street). At 6:30, we’ll all head to the J. Huston Tavern at 305 Main Street for dinner, drinks, and the always-entertaining live auction. Your all-inclusive ticket for the in-person event, including the home tours and dinner is $70.
Click the Blue Button to get to the registration page, purchase tickets, and preview auction items as they become available. Once on the registration site, you’ll find the ticket link on the left if viewing the page on a PC, or on the menu button on the upper left if viewing on a smart phone.
Proceeds from this event support the historic preservation and history education projects of the Friends of Arrow Rock!
Sip & Stroll attendees have the choice of dining inside the J. Huston Tavern or outside in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings of the Tavern Lawn.
Your dinner menu includes tender, flavorful beef brisket, green beans, hominy salad, biscuit, and assorted cakes from The Cake Lady in Sedalia. The cake flavors include chocolate with chocolate ganache, German chocolate, vanilla with red raspberry filling, lemon, and a gluten free carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
