Turn up the weekend heat at the Warm Your Heart Chili and Jewelry Sale, set for 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 23, at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care-Stein Campus, 2801 E. Morgan Ave. This special sale will feature a variety of chili from popular Milwaukee restaurants, fun and affordable jewelry, a gift market and live music.
Chili choices will range from mild to spicy to red-hot and include meaty and vegetarian options, served with all the fixings. Chili will be sold by the bowl and in flights of several sample-size favorites. Also available: delicious, freshly made fry bread that pairs perfectly with chili or can be enjoyed on its own.
Jewelry fans can browse hundreds of pieces of vintage, retro and heirloom jewelry—rings, necklaces and bracelets to pins, earrings (clip-on and pierced) and watches that dedicated volunteers repair and clean. Also featured will be a collection of jewelry designed and handcrafted by Sr. Edna Lonergan, St. Ann Center founder and president. Sr. Edna began making jewelry years ago as a pastime and a way to supplement funding for the children, elders and adults with disabilities served by St. Ann Center.
The center’s spacious atrium will be filled with vendors offering natural soaps and lotions, handcrafts, home decor, gourmet food and more. On the veranda, the Non Prophets will take the stage from 10 a.m. to noon, playing bluegrass, rock and Americana. To help shoppers relax, there’ll be free 5-minute chair massages from St. Ann Center’s certified massage therapists.
Among restaurants donating chili are: Amelia’s, The Backyard, Beans & Barley, Cudahy Burger Joint, Palomino Bar/Honey Pie Café/SmallPie, The Soup Market-Bay View and The Soup Otzie’s. More are being added; check stanncenter.org/cjsale for updates.
All proceeds from the chili and jewelry sale go to support the care of children and adults of all ages and abilities at St. Ann Center.
