Five Points Washington will kick off the holiday season with its first-ever Sip & Shop Holiday Boutique.
The November 15 event takes place from 1 PM to 5 PM at Five Points Washington, located at 360 N. Wilmor Road. Patrons should enter through the south entrance of the facility. Area restaurants will be on site with food and festive adult beverages available for purchase as patrons browse items from various local artists, fashion retailers and boutique owners.
Admission is a suggested $2 donation or the donation of a canned vegetable or other nonperishable food item, all of which will be donated to the Washington Helps Its People (WHIP) Food Pantry. Masks will be required and social distancing will be utilized to promote a safe and enjoyable shopping experience. Numerous areas of the multipurpose facility will be utilized and a maximum on the number of people allowed in particular rooms will be enforced.
