Shopping at the Stissing House’s Holiday Market

Bang + Collins PR helped client Stissing House restaurant in Pine Plains, NY, to showcase their special events capabilities while supporting the local community during the busy December holiday season.

BCPR helped choose and organize over 16 area vendors for Le Shopping: Holiday Market in the Stissing House’s historical event space to support these local small businesses without a retail presence.

Over 75 people attended the Holiday Market Cocktail Preview Party on Friday night with all admission proceeds donated to Adopt-A-Family.  Based in Millerton, NY, the charity, which is a member of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, provides new warm clothing and toys for over 120 area families (325+ children) in need over the holiday season.  Patricia Jean, proprietor of the Stissing House, presented Adopt-A-Family with a check for $2,000 which was raised at the benefit.

The Preview Party gave guests the first chance to shop from a variety of carefully curated items – ranging from personal and home accessories, paintings, ceramics, jewelry, clothing, and other gifts – with complimentary glasses of Prosecco and homemade cheese puffs as an added incentive.  The festively decorated upstairs event space offered the perfect backdrop for Le Shopping: Holiday Market, open to the public for no charge throughout the weekend.

BCPR and the Stissing House thank all who came out to support Adopt-A-Family and invited vendors and make the Le Shopping: Holiday Market weekend a success.
