Our goal with this event is to promote the wonderfully talented locals and their creative endeavors. Providing a chance for local film companies, actors, writers, and professional and amateur artists to set up side by side to promote their art and make a little money for themselves. Some tables are still available! To reserve table space please Contact Sara Arnett (see Admins) ASAP. There will be a silent art auction and raffle,... (we are asking our guests to donate items or donate a portion of their earnings for the evening). We will be donating the entirety of the earnings of the raffle and the auction to The American Cancer Society. If you would like to donate, please let us know!
