In October of 2019, we hosted our first A Day of Courage in Roslyn Village, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Participating retailers donated 20% of sales for that day and offered a very generous “gift with purchase”. Some restaurants participated by donating a portion of sales to Go With Courage customers. Our incredible wine sponsor, Notorious Pink Rose, donated wine for each retailer to serve throughout the day. Parking was suspended for the day and the clock tower was lit up in pink.
In 2020, despite the global pandemic, we moved forward with a COVID-SAFE Second Annual A Day of Courage on October 23rd. It had an outdoor component, wherever possible, including a Go With Courage tent set up in the parking lot adjacent to Delicacies, for us to sell raffles and auction off some special items. With very few restaurants on board, we offered “Boxes of Courage” to go from Roslyn Social, for lunch and dinner and included a COMPLIMENTARY bottle of Notorious Pink Rose wine for orders of $50 and over. Roslyn Social killed it in its upstairs outdoor deck/patio and everyone had an amazing day. Participating retailers had incredibly successful sales days and hope to repeat it again this year
We hope that you will find a way to come out and support this feel-good local event at this year’s A Day of Courage on Friday, October 29, 2021.
