KATY (Covering Katy News) – Katy’s largest and most established wine and culinary festival is right around the corner – and is ready to once again pour for a purpose.
The Katy Sip N Stroll will take place on Saturday, Nov. 3, at Villagio Town Center in the heart of Cinco Ranch. The signature bi-annual event offers more than 1,800 Katy locals a great evening enjoying and discovering culinary creations from 30+ restaurants and food tasting stations, 150+ wine selections and an extensive craft beer garden. Tickets are all-inclusive starting at $35 (General Admission, 6-9 p.m.) and $65 (VIP, 5-9 p.m.) at www.sipandstroll.com.
Sip N Stroll benefits The Ballard House, which offers no-cost housing for patients and their families who are in the Houston area receiving treatment for a life-threatening illness. Having recovered from Hurricane Harvey last year, the shelter is currently expanding by adding 16 more guest suites, making Sip N Stroll ticket sales and sponsorships more timely than ever.
All Sip N Stroll efforts raise funds for The Ballard House including silent auction and wine pull. 100 percent of these proceeds go directly to serve persons undergoing treatment for serious medical conditions by providing free housing. Over $250,000 has been raised for The Ballard House through Sip n Stroll efforts.
Highlights of this fall’s event include Bubbles @ Villagio, presented by The Rustic Brush, featuring sparkling wines, champagne and food tastings, The Beer Club with VIP premium craft beer selections for serious enthusiasts, culinary serving stations by participating restaurants, and a silent auction and wine pull benefiting The Ballard House.
Attendees will be treated to live music on three stages from Robert Hartye (Aruba Tourism Courtyard Stage), Kristen Hart (Back Street Stage) and Gabe Montoya (Cane Island Stage).
Tickets include a keepsake glass and an all-inclusive culinary and wine sampling experience from 6-9 pm starting at $35. Patrons have the option to upgrade to the Mercantil Bank VIP Zone for premium wine and food selections, relaxed seating as well as access to all festivities one hour before general admission guests arrive. VIP ticket holders also recieve a swag bag.
