'Holiday Sip & Shop' — Raising Money for a Good Cause

Hundreds turned out Tuesday night to support the opening of a new Down Syndrome Awareness Center. Share your photos here!

An estimated 400 people turned out Tuesday night at Edina's Pinstripes for the second annual fundraiser for GiGi's Playhouse, a Down Syndrome Awareness Center slated to open in St. Louis Park in 2013.

More than 30 local vendors offered everything from food samples to fashion consults during the three-hour event designed to raise awareness of the children with Down Syndrome.

The above photos are from those who attended Tuesday night.

And though the fundraiser may be over, the organization is still accepting donations for the center. More information can be found at the GiGi's Playhouse website or by contacting Pinstripes at 952-835-6440.

This was an amazing turnout at an event like this to raise money and awareness for a new Down Syndrome Awareness Center that is coming to St. Louis Park. Amy Jackson, who helped coordinate the event, did a remarkable job bringing so many people and vendors together to raise money for this cause. Please share your thoughts here why a center like GiGi's Playhouse is important to the Twin Cities.
