Sister Bay’s Fall Fest is a beloved annual event for many visitors, and it’s a great way to cap the summer season for locals and seasonal workers. Sadly, it’s another event that has been canceled for 2020, but the Sister Bay Advancement Association came up with a way for would-be fest goers to infuse some Fall Fest flavor into their season while also sending dollars to the nonprofits that will be missing out this year.
When the fest’s cancellation seemed certain, its organizers – who were concerned about the consequences for the nonprofits that usually partake and benefit from the festival – began brainstorming.
Their solution? Create a limited-edition gift box filled with Fall Fest-themed items and send some of the proceeds to those nonprofits.
“The Sister Bay Advancement Association came up with the idea of designing a gift box with Door County Delivered,” said Christiana Trapani, owner of Door County Delivered, “and we worked together to come up with this unique, limited-edition box.”
Door County Delivered is a Door County-based gift-box and subscription-box company that partners with local businesses to create boxes filled with local products – from food items to candles and cocktails.
“Sister Bay is receiving a portion of the box proceeds, and they are giving 10 percent of each purchase to the Sister Bay Koinonia Kupboard Food Pantry and United Way of Door County,” Trapani said.
What’s included in the specialty box? You’ll find items branded with the special 75-year anniversary Fall Fest logo, including a Fall Fest koozie, glass and ping-pong ball, which can be redeemed for a T-shirt at the 2021 fest. Also included are a Fall Fest-themed Door County Candle Company candle, pumpkin-spice-flavored Door County Coffee, Door County Creamery soap, and a dark chocolate/cherry chocolate bar from DC Chocolate.
