Keep Sag Harbor Warm

Urban Zen X Tutto il Giorno in Sag Harbor is partnering with The Shed to host a fundraising dinner titled Festa al Camino, benefitting Keep Sag Harbor Warm. Currently, the Sag Harbor Food Pantry assists around 75 families. Once cold weather hits, many have difficulty affording the cost of heating oil. The pantry will oversee Keep Sag Harbor Warm, ensuring that families with school-aged children who already receive food assistance can receive deliveries of heating oil.

The three-course, family-style dinner with wine will be held on Thursday, February 7, at 6 PM. A portion of sales from Urban Zen merchandise will also be donated. For tickets, which start at $75, visit www.eventbrite.com and search “Festa al Camino.”
