This year, one of the most popular auction items from the Celebration Foundation’s Dancing through the Decades Gala was the “Drink of the Month.” Susan Bona, from Town Tavern granted guests the opportunity to buy a drink for a month that will be offered at our favorite local establishment.

This cool idea was suggested by Celebration Foundation board member Lisa Buyer and requested of Susan, who immediately accepted and worked with her team to create an array of delicious drinks for purchase each month. And it all came together.

Just think, your name highlighted on your drink, showcased on the tables and the monthly feature sheet, what a fun way to celebrate with friends!

If you research “cheering or toasting to celebrate” many versions of the origin of this popular tradition exist, but one that seems to be most fitting is “a celebration of gladness and encouragement”.

The basis of the Celebration Foundation’s promotion of our various programs are rooted in encouragement and care, and this wonderful means of “Celebrating” is just the perfect way to compliment the sincere premise of the Foundation, its supporters, and its volunteers that all make this community amazing.

April’s drink, sponsored by Val and Paul Collins, is the Elderflower Sparkler. There are still a few months available and for each drink sold, Susan is donating $2.00 to the Celebration Foundation in support of its amazing programs. For further information, please call the Celebration Foundation office at 407-566-1234 and join us for a drink at Town Tavern. Cheers my friends!
