Welcome to our blog.

We’re pleased to welcome back Neighbor’s Mill Springfield as a 2017 vendor.

Neighbor’s Mill specializes in hand-crafted “American-hearth” style breads made from scratch daily. They bake a variety of breads, using wheat berries from Montana that are milled on site in their grist-mill. They also handcraft over two dozen varieties of bread, muffins, pastries, and croissants in addition to a full menu of lunch and dinner offerings.

They’ll be sampling cookies, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, croissants, and cupcakes at Sip & Savor on April 8 while supporting Harmony House and Rare Breed.

We’re thrilled to welcome back last year’s “fan favorite” Kilwins Branson as a 2017 vendor.

Located on the Branson Landing, Kilwins is a locally owned specialty sweet shop offering original recipe ice cream, handcrafted fudge, caramel corns, brittles, and specialty chocolates. All crafted with the best quality ingredients and old fashioned techniques, their treats are “Sweet in Every Sense.”

They’ll be serving samples of their top flavors of ice cream and fudge (with possible sightings of caramel apples!) at Sip & Savor on April 8 while supporting Harmony House and Rare Breed.

Drury University’s Sigma Pi chapter is proud to present Sip & Savor Springfield, a charity dessert and beverage sampling fundraiser set for Sat., April 8, 2017. The event will be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the O’Reilly Family Event Center on the Drury University campus.

Sip & Savor Springfield will serve up the opportunity for some of the finest culinary minds in the Ozarks to combine what they do best with raising much-needed funds to support two area nonprofits, all while providing valuable real-world experience for college students planning the event.

All proceeds will benefit Harmony House, one of the state’s largest shelters and resource centers for domestic violence victims and their families, and Rare Breed, a resource center for at-risk and homeless youth.

Attendees will be able to sample decadent treats and tasty beverages from over 20 vendors including Blue Bell Creameries, Chick-Fil-A, Chinese Chef, Corkscrew Catering, El Charro, Eurasia, Heart of America Beverage, Heroes Coffee, Hiland Dairy, Insomnia Cookies, June’s Cakery, Kilwins Branson, La Paloma, Neighbor’s Mill Bakery & Cafe, Panera Bread Bakery-Cafe, Springfield Brewing Company, Tea Bar & Bites, The Rim, and Truffles E Truffles Handmade Chocolates, and more.

While it’s the inaugural year for Sip & Savor Springfield, Drury Sigma Pi members have built upon their experience gained while hosting last April’s Sugar Rush fundraiser, which raised over $8,500 for the two nonprofits. “After the enormous success with Sugar Rush, we’ve spent the last year tweaking the original idea by adding new features and incorporating a wider variety of food and beverage options to ensure there’s something for everyone,” said Ethan Williamson, the student leading the Sip & Savor project team.

General admission tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. VIP tickets are $30, student tickets are $10, and children eight and under are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at sipsavorspringfield.com or at the door on the day of the event.
