On April 23rd Deerfield residents and employees enjoyed a Spring Sock Hop – but this was not your typical sock hop. This was a “Sockraiser” to benefit the Homeward Bound AHope program. Sponsored by Marketing and Philanthropy, it was a team effort to make it successful. Zoe, Deerfield’s Café Pastry Chef, baked and decorated 500 sock-shaped cookies, team members gathered to individually wrap the cookies and as people dropped off a new pair of socks they received a cookie to go.
More than 650 new socks were collected and 500 cookie socks were consumed!
