Wear White And Support Family Respite

(WINDSOR, ON) – Dry Parlour Inc will host their second annual Summer White Party, on July 11 at 7:00 pm, with 100% of all proceeds benefiting Windsor’s Family Respite Services.

Witness the Willistead Restaurant, at 1840 Wyandotte Street East, morph into South Beach with its extended patio adorned in white linens, chandeliers and, of course, beautifully dressed guests.

Attendees will have the opportunity to show off their finest whites while enjoying a selection of summer fare prepared by Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres winner Jim Renaud, and listening to the sounds of DJing duo Chilly n’ Dio.

The event is held in celebration of summer and offers an exciting way to give back to the community, specifically children with disabilities and their parents.

“We look forward to honouring Family Respite Services for their outstanding commitment to the Windsor-Essex community and want to do our part to ensure they can keep doing what they do,” said Sylvia Gounakis, co-owner of Dry Parlour.

“We strive at staying committed to our charitable goals,” said the second half of Dry Parlour, George Kalivas. “Even though we are a new small business, we feel that it is our responsibility to assist the very same community that is helping us grow. We owe our success to our amazing city, and we look forward to many more years of organizing this event.”

Family Respite Services was also the beneficiary for last year’s inaugural event and both organizations intend on repeating the event while developing their relationship further.

“One hundred per cent of proceeds from events such as this enable us to ensure that children with disabilities can participate in community recreation activities just like their peers,” said Alexandria Fischer of Family Respite Services. “We are thrilled to have the support of Dry Parlour for this event as Family Respite Services relies on Windsor’s business community to serve parents and children in need of help. Events such as this essentially help parents get a break, and their children engaged in meaningful activities”.

Tickets are $50 and are available at Family Respite Services, Dry Parlour Inc and online through SNAPD Windsor.White-poster
