Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty and My Sisters’ Place hosted a different kind of fundraiser, “A Taste of Rye,” on September 20. By purchasing a ticket, participants were able to sip, snack, and stroll at six restaurants featured on the tasting tour: Ruby’s Oyster Bar, Morgan’s Fish House, Encore, Town Dock, Rye Bar & Grill, and Fogama. The chef at each stop prepared a special appetizer.
The company sold over 350 tickets to the event, matching each ticket purchased up to a total of $7,500, and raised an additional $6,000 through a company-held silent auction, featuring items donated by Rye merchants. In total, the company raised over $30,000. All money will go directly to My Sisters’ Place in support of its efforts to end domestic violence by helping victims while focusing on community education and prevention. The organization also combats human trafficking throughout Westchester County, and offers advocacy, shelter, and legal services to those in need.
“I am so proud to support My Sisters’ Place, a vital organization that works to effect important social change in our community,” said Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s Rye brokerage manager Pati Holmes. “I am also tremendously grateful that such an excellent selection of Rye restaurants decided to open their doors and join us in this worthwhile cause.”
