2012 Christmas Party

What:    Artworks 2012 Christmas Party
When: December 11, 2012 5:00pm
Where: Artworks Studio & Gallery
13700 Perdido Key Drive
Pensacola, FL

Artworks' 2012 Christmas Party will be held on December 11th starting at 5:00pm. This year’s party will feature live entertainment, food and drinks provided by the gallery’s artists and by members of the Old River Optimist Club (OROC). An art auction will be held with the proceeds from donated pieces going to OROC for distribution to area organizations for kids. Toys will be collected for Toys for Tots so bring a new, unwrapped toy as a Christmas gift which will be picked up at the end of the evening by a Marine representative from Toys for Tots. OROC will also be donating winter jackets to kids in the area for their annual Coats for Kids Campaign – even though it may not snow down here, it still gets pretty cold. Come join us for a great evening celebrating Christmas and ‘Bringing out the Best in Kids’.

Toys for Tots donations may be dropped off at the gallery in advance.

Thank you all and Merry Christmas from all the artists at Artworks Studio & Gallery, all the members of Old River Optimist Club and all of the wonderful kids that will be blessed by your donations.

Email HelpingKids@OldRiverOptimistClub.org if you have questions or would like to contribute.
