A toast to 2019’s Rose Day

Nicki's Central West End Guide Events, Sightings Food and Drink  Yellowbelly Shake Shack Rose Day Michael Powers   If you were out and about in the neighborhood Saturday afternoon May 4th, you had to have noticed that there was a large party going on. The sidewalks were packed with 1500 people participating in Rosé Day, a benefit for 12 non-profits dedicated to empowering women and girls in the St. Louis area. The partnering organizations were stationed at 10 different locations (see map here) where attendees could gather information and sample an assortment of rosés.

Rosé Day co-founders Michael Powers, above left, and Jim Barnthouse, right, reported that this year’s crowd was twice as large as last year’s inaugural event.  Also photographed is volunteer Chico Weber, middle.

Two CWE restaurants, Yellowbelly and Shake Shack. dedicated a portion of the day’s sales to two of the non-profits. Shake Shack contributed over $1,300 to Safe Connections, and Yellowbelly supported Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis.
