Autism Awareness Month April



CLINTON TOWNSHIP – During the month of April Vince & Joe’s Gourmet Market joins the world in promoting Autism Awareness by collecting donations for Hope Network, one of Michigan’s largest nonprofits supporting Autism services. It’s part of our year-round commitment to Hope Network and Autism Awareness from sales of our homemade Emma’s Hope sauces created just for this partnership.

Since 2018 a portion of all sales from Emma’s Hope sauces along with donations taken during the month of April have been donated each year to Hope Network as a way for the Vitale family to give back to an organization that helps so many. Co-owner Joe Vitale’s granddaughter Emma, 14, has Autism and the family knows first-hand how much the Hope Network does for families across Michigan. With the addition of the 2023 donation, the total-to-date campaign funds raised by Emma’s Hope sauces is now over $60,000.

Emma’s Hope sauces include Marinara, Meat, Alfredo and Pesto sauces. Each sauce is delicious served with pasta or can be used as a base sauce for your favorite recipe, or marinade. During April Vince & Joe’s Executive Chef Angelo Loria will share recipes using Emma’s Hope sauces on social media and in stores. Watch our social media for times for weekly sauce tastings and for autograph signings before the upcoming NFL Draft with former NFL Detroit Lions kicker, Eddie Murray, who is Hope Network’s Director of Donor and Community Relations.

At Vince & Joe’s Gourmet Market customers continue to experience a tradition of excellence where only the best produce, meats, cheeses, wine, seafood, baked goods, imported and gourmet prepared foods are available. For more on Vince & Joe’s and the Emma’s Hope sauces visit
