I think most of us know and love Careful Peach. The customer service is outstanding. The merchandise is beautiful. Further, Karen Morava and her team do a fantastic job of being a part of our community, celebrating with our community and giving back to our community - often by throwing us a party.
The Careful Peach's annual Bastille Day celebration is a perfect example of that. This year's annual fundraising shopping event will support the Animal Care League and feature Louisiana inspired Cajun music, muffalettas and dance lessons. It's this Saturday July 13 from 10am-6pm.
"Live music from local Cajun band Le Travaillant will entertain guests as they browse the Peach's wares, partake of free Cajun dance lessons, have their tarot cards read, and enjoy complimentary beverages indoors and out. The Animal Care League will be on site with a great team of volunteers and adoptable pets on the premises throughout the day."
Did you read that? There will be card readings AND Cajun dance lessons. I'm there! I need a good dose of fortune telling and dancing.
Kinderhook Tap (our gourmet animal lovers) are on site providing a Louisiana inspired food tent. The $15 admission all goes to the Animal Care League. Yes, it all goes to the Animal Care League. I'll admit, Kinderhook food and altruism sounds like a great reason to have dinner. Can I interject how awesome Kinderhook Tap is for sponsoring all of that as well? NICE!
Here are some event basics:
Event t-shirts can be purchased in a variety of sizes for $12(also supporting the ACL). That's a bargain.
Le Travaillant will be performing from about 12pm-3pm. After that local high school jazz band celebrities will take the stage to entertain.
The muffalettas are available from 12pm-3pm as well. So if you need to get your mittens on a muffaletta and listen to cajun heroes, get to The Peach early.
Hurray for Careful Peach giving us a good excuse to laissez les bon temps rouler. (Let the good times roll).
