Supper Stroll Registration is Open!

You are invited to a fun evening with Bigelow families!

Registration is now open! Please reserve your seats here. 

The Supper Stroll is a progressive dinner and is held at several homes in succession on one night. A single course is served at each home. At the first home everyone gathers for appetizers, you then go to a second home for dinner with 8-12 people, then everyone meets again to finish the night with desserts at a third house. The Supper Stroll has been an enjoyable fundraiser for many, many years. Adults in the Bigelow Community are welcome to participate.

Come! We hope to see you!

Saturday, November 4th, 6pm-11:30pm

Appetizers 6-8pm – The Mattioli Residence
Dinners 8-10pm* – Assorted Residences
Dessert 10-11:30pm* – TBA

A Big thank you to all the families who have generously opened their homes to host a dinner for our evening. We still need a few dinner hosts – please consider hosting and contributing to this great event!
