The annual holiday fundraiser for Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels will look a little different this year, but it promises to hold all of the fun that supporters have come to expect from our winter event.

The night will include a selection of delicious meat or vegetarian appetizers from Simply Scrumptious, a live demonstration of how to prepare two of the appetizers, live musical entertainment by local folk duo Adam Labeaux and Sara Gibson, an auction of donated items as well as handmade items from YMOW clients, and messages from EMU president Jim Smith, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and YMOW clients.

Guests can choose between regular and vegetarian food packages, which will be delivered to homes in Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor and Dexter on Saturday, Dec. 5. Orders must be placed by Nov. 30

Snack boxes of non-perishable, handmade snacks can be shipped for an additional charge. Orders must be placed by Nov. 23.

Guests also have the option to participate in a wine tasting event at the end of the program. Orders must be placed by Nov. 30. Shipping available in Michigan only.
