Bijoux Destin Hosts "Sip n Shop" for Chi Chi Miguel Throwdown May 1, 2015

The 5th Annual Sip n Shop event is set to be one fabulous day of shopping, eating, and sipping at Bijoux Destin! As a part of the Chi Chi Miguel Throwdown weekend, Sip n Shop brings together local vendors and winemakers in an effort to raise money and awareness for Alaqua Animal Refuge.

Sip n Shop is Friday, May 1 (the day before the big cook-off) and brings together wine makers, food, and local businesses, designers, and artists. This year, Bijoux Destin is hosting the event from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Unique, local businesses will set up to bring private shopping right to the participants as they sip champagne and wine and then enjoy a fabulous, three-course lunch prepared by our executive chef, Jack McGuckin, and the Bijoux team.

Tickets are $150 per person and all proceeds benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge.

Everyone loves to Sip n Shop, so why not do it for a great cause? Your support allows Alaqua to save more animals, expand its facility, and create educational programs to benefit the community. Alaqua believes that every abused, neglected and homeless animal deserves a second chance. The private, nonprofit animal sanctuary is committed to serving the Emerald Coast as the premier no-kill refuge, providing protection, shelter and care to animals in need, a full-service animal adoption center, and is a peaceful, proactive animal welfare advocate through educational outreach and community programs.
