Have a night out on the town as the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the fourth annual Taste of the Town Stroll which includes over 30 different participating stores and restaurants. A “food-raiser” for the New Canaan Food Pantry, the Taste of the Town Stroll will collect donations for the Pantry (donations can be dropped off at the Stroll, not before!) in exchange for a chance to win fabulous prizes after visiting at least 12 of the stores on the map! This year’s grand prize being generously donated by Le Boudoir is a weekly blow-dry for one whole year! Over $7,000 worth of prizes will be given out the night of the stroll. Festive activities and culinary delights will be available at each of the participating venues throughout downtown New Canaan, promising to entertain local residents and guests who come to New Canaan to shop, dine and see old friends.
Food Pantry Donations
Specific items that are needed are Herbal Tea, Coffee, Canned Fruit, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Dish and Laundry Soap, and Crackers and Pasta. You can even stop by Walter Stewarts and purchase a “pre-packaged” bag for $15 and $25 which have a retail value of $25 and $40 thanks to the generosity of Stewarts. Just bring your receipt to the Stroll and you are good to go! The other way to enter to win is to spend $200 in stores on the evening of the stroll. Bring your receipts to the registration table and you will automatically be entered to win!
