Vince & Joe’s is Committed to Autism Awareness and Hope Network

Vince and Joe’s Gourmet Market takes great pride in being part of April’s Autism Awareness Month. During the entire month of April, Vince and Joe’s Gourmet Market collected donations at the registers at both Clinton Township and Shelby Township locations for the Hope Network Center as part of its Emma’s Hope Autism Awareness campaign. A check for over $10,000 was presented to the folks at Hope Network.

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 the 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, 12, has Autism and the family knows first-hand how much the Hope Network does for families across Michigan.

The family’s famous sauces – Marinara, Meat, Alfredo and Pesto – have been the perfect choice for the campaign raising more than $35,000 to date. Hope Network is one of Michigan’s largest nonprofits supporting Autism services. Former NFL Detroit Lions kicker and Hope Network’s Director of Donor Community Relations, Eddie Murray, is thrilled that Vince and Joe’s is partnering with Hope Network again this year.

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