We have a trio of quick bite to keep your belly full this week. Not that we need an excuse to eat pie, but The Happy Apple has the perfect justification for a little indulgence. New Rose Catering is running a supply drive for Housing Forward. And Riverside Presbyterian Church is hosting a family friendly Oktoberfest. Read on for all the delicious details.
1. THE HAPPY APPLE SUPPORTS HURRICANE RELIEF:
Through Sunday September 15th, 10% of all sales at The Happy Apple Pie Shop will be donated to the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Recovery Fund to support long-term efforts to help survivors of Dorian in the Bahamas.
Pie Varieties this week include:
- Coconut cream
- Key lime
2. NEW ROSE CATERING REWARDS SUPPORT FOR HOUSING FORWARD:
From September 9–18, New Rose Catering will be collecting donations of new bedding, pillows, toiletries, socks, and other items for Housing Forward’s Sojourner House. This new facility provides a safe and stable place for their homeless clients to recover once they are released from the hospital. Located at 324 N. Austin Blvd Sojourner House is the first transitional housing of its kind in suburban Cook County.
New Rose is asking our customers and friends to help out by:
- Purchasing items from Housing Forward’s wish list
- Providing items for collection when they deliver their weekly meals and catering orders
- Donating online directly to Housing Forward
Should you choose to you donate, please include your contact information. New Rose customers who donate will receive a free quart of soup and a coupon for $10 off their next order with New Rose Catering.
3. ROLL OUT THE BARREL WITH RIVERSIDE PRESBYTERIAN:
Riverside Presbyterian Church, 116 Barrypoint Road, invites you to dust off your lederhosen and dirndl and head over to their Oktoberfest on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 3 to 8 p.m.
The family-friendly event features kids’ games, a raffle and delicious Oktoberfest fare. Tickets, which include all food and beverages, for adults are $20 in advance ($25 at the door). Kids’ tickets are $10.
