Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty Hosts ‘A Taste of Larchmont’ With My Sisters’ Place to Fight Domestic Violence


Larchmont, N.Y. (April 10, 2015) — Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the company will partner with My Sisters' Place, a Westchester County-based organization that works to fight domestic violence, in hosting a fund-raising “A Taste of Larchmont” restaurant crawl. The event takes place on May 2, 2015 from 3-5:30pm.

The company is currently selling tickets to the event for $50, and will also make its own donation. Additional funds will be raised through a company-held silent auction, featuring items donated from local Larchmont merchants. All money raised will go directly to My Sisters’ Place in support of its efforts to end domestic violence by helping victims while focusing on community education and prevention. My Sisters’ Place also combats human trafficking throughout Westchester County, and offers advocacy, shelter and legal services to those in need.

Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty hosted a similar event in Rye in 2014, and raised more than $30,000 for My Sisters’ Place. The company hopes to raise even more during its May event.

Purchase of a ticket allows participants to “sip, snack and stroll,” gaining them a drink and a specially prepared appetizer by the chef at each of seven restaurants featured on the tasting tour, including Coriander, Encore Bistro, Polpettina, Anna-Maria’s, Sherwood’s, Apiary, and Auray Gourmet and Post Wine & Spirits, where a joint offering of wine and cheese will be provided. The Larchmont Chamber of Commerce plans to donate a trolley to take visitors around the village throughout the day, as well as provide transportation to and from the train station.

“Peace in the world begins with peace at home. The services My Sisters’ Place provides are deeply important in achieving peace and ending domestic violence in our communities, and it is an honor for us to support them,” said Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty Larchmont brokerage manager Carolyn Fugere. “I am also grateful that such an impressive selection of Larchmont restaurants and merchants are rallying to the cause.”

Tickets can be purchased online here, and exchanged for a wristband at the company’s Larchmont brokerage, located at 1946 Palmer Avenue, on Friday, May 1 or Saturday, May 2 between 9am and 5pm.
