More than 20 vendors, selling everything from purses to boots to jewelry will be at the Carriage Greens Country Club on Friday, September 28 for a Ladies Shopping Soiree. The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is being hosted by a Darien resident.
A raffle will be held during the event, and all proceeds will be donated to the James Borsilli Children's Trust.
Sergeant James Borsilli served the community of Darien for 24 years as a patrol officer, evidence technician, detective and sergeant with the Darien Police Department. He battled cancer for about a year before passing away in February.
"I became familiar with the James Borsilli Children's Trust when they hosted their wonderful fundraising event at Carriage Greens a few months back and it really touched my heart to see how the community came together to help this family," said Adriana Broderick, who is hosting and organizing the event.
One of the jewelry vendors also will be donating 30 percent of his profits to the trust.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door and include the price of dinner and one soft drink or cocktail. There will be a DJ on hand for entertainment during the night. Those interested in attending the event can register through the link below.
Broderick said in addition to allowing the community to come together and get started on holiday shopping, she organized the event, because she wanted to do something to help a family of the community.
"There is nothing more important to me than my family," said Broderick. "I wish the Borsilli family all the best and hope the proceeds we collect can help them through this difficult time."
