Sip & Savour on Saturday

Sip & Savour, a fundraising gallery crawl through Myers Park, is from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22.

Tickets cost $25 and check-in is at Allison Sprock Fine Art, 600 Queens Road. Proceeds go to Melissa's Voice (, a nonprofit with the mission of giving a voice to those with eating disorders. It's named for founder Lynn Dreyer's late sister Melissa who killed herself after a longtime struggle with bulimia. (The photo above is of Lynn Dreyer and eating disorder survivor Katie Brumley.)

From 6 to 8:30 p.m. you can crawl through the four participating galleries with their offerings of art, wine provided by the Wine Sisterhood, and food from area restaurants. From 8:30 to 11 p.m. there's an after-party at nearby FABO with music from Simplified. Wine and beer will be for sale during the concert with a portion of the proceeds going to the cause.

The participating galleries are Allison Sprock Fine Art, 600 Queens Road; Providence Gallery, 601 Providence Road; Shain Gallery, 2823 Selwyn Ave.; and Renee George Gallery, 2839 Selwyn Ave.
