Blue Shutters Open House for Por Cristo Nov. 14: Great Food, Shopping and Fun in Support of a Great Organization
For some friends of the Blue Shutters, it's hard to accept that the summer is gone, but actually the late fall and winter is a beautiful time on Cape Ann. The autumn colors are in the trees, the cool weather along the shore is refreshing -- and the beach is as spectacular as ever! This is also the start of the holiday season, and there's an event here in early November that'll help you get into the spirit.
You're invited to be our guest on the afternoon of November 14 for an open house with a fun, Latin America feel. Our "Taste of Latin America" charity open house is our way of calling attention to the great work of Por Cristo, a Massachusetts-based non-profit organization that has been providing healthcare to the poor in Ecuador for the past 30 years. In addition to great food with a South American flavor -- thanks to our guest chef Mark Sapienza of the Langham Hotel -- we'll be recreating the "bazaar" that was so popular when we did this event last year. You'll be able to get great deals on jewelry, scarfs and other items our friends from Por Cristo have brought back from Ecuador and the Amazonian rain forest. These make very unique gifts -- and it's all to support the charitable work of Por Cristo. So, come join us on November 14 from 2-5pm to have some fun, learn something new and kick-start the holidays.
