Downtown Neenah is hosting their 3rd annual Warm Your Heart event on Saturday, February 11. More than 20 downtown Neenah businesses will be participating by offering samples of warm foods, beverages and snacks. The $15 admission fee includes warm samples at each of the participating businesses, plus a limited-edition Sunset Hill Stoneware mug. They limit the event to 225 participants so store owners can plan appropriately.
The Warm Your Heart event sells out quickly each year – so hopefully you’ve already registered. Conducted between the hours of 11:00am-3:00pm, participants can pick up The Potbelly Morning Mums mug at the Future Neenah office. It’s there they will receive a list of the warm items being served at participating stores. It’s a fun couples and/or girls day to browse, buy and donate. Your donation of new adult socks and/or white t-shirts allows participants to receive an additional discount or coupon toward their purchases. Last year more than 425 pairs of socks were delivered to the Warming Shelter.
So many great specialty gift shops downtown to walk through – my personal favorite is the Red Door Mercantile, it is like shopping a modern-day general store and Vintique where you’ll find retro gifts, along with vintage clothing and accessories. That’s just for starts – you’ll find unique children toys, Wisconsin’s largest selection of delicious oils and vinegars and many, many wonderful dining cuisines.
All of this for $15. It may be the best deal in Wisconsin. That warms everyone’s heart in February.
Keeping watch. Pat
