New Canaan, Conn. (Sept 16, 2021) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the company’s New Canaan brokerage recently co-sponsored the “Taste of New Canaan Stroll” on August 25th, in partnership with the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce and Walter Stewart’s Market. The event provided a chance to welcome families and friends into downtown New Canaan to experience and support local businesses. More than 250 strollers attended the event, raising nearly $6,000 with all proceeds going to the New Canaan Food Pantry.
The event spanned downtown New Canaan, allowing guests the ability to spend time sampling foods and drinks at 25 different stores and restaurants. The stroll included three different tours with an option for a self-guided tour, perfect for anyone looking to enjoy the best of what’s offered in town.
The proceeds from the event will go to support the local food pantry in its efforts to support and give back to those in need. This event allowed the company an opportunity to play a part in a town favorite event, which couldn’t happen last year due to the pandemic.
“I am extremely proud and honored to be a part of this community,” said Carolyn Fugere, manager of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty New Canaan brokerage. “Coming together to support a great cause and generating such positive results has been a very rewarding experience for everyone involved, and I want to thank all of our volunteers and those who supported this event.”
The event marks the tenth year the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce has hosted a Taste Tour of New Canaan. What started out as residents bringing their own food from their pantries to help the New Canaan Food Pantry has now turned into a New Canaan staple.
