Biz X Was There – Walk on Erie Street For Family Respite Services
On June 17, 2019 the 20th annual “Walk on Erie Street,” an evening of food and fun to raise funds for Family Respite Services (FRS) took place in the evening.
Over 400 participated because Nico Taverna, Mezzo Ristorante & Lounge, La Contessa, Bacchus Ristorante and Spago are serving something that’s not typically on their menu. People went wild for this one-of-a-kind experience, as this has been a sold out event for Family Respite Services over the last six years!
The progressive walk, wine and dine started at St. Angela’s Hall for appetizers, then each guest went to three restaurants throughout the evening and then ended up at the hall for dessert at the end.
Owner Peter Vitti of Spago stated, “For 30 years, Spago has been committed to serving the Windsor community the true taste of Italy. It is our absolute pleasure to be able to share this commitment alongside Family Respite for this event and admire their involvement and passion in improving our community. Salute!”
The event raised respite funds for families caring for children and youth with disabilities in our community.
