2016 Mardi Gras Blessing of the Boats

Friday January 22nd, Artworks is decorating and blessing the boat it is floating in the Pirates of Lost Treasure Mardi Gras Boat Parade which is the next morning (Saturday the 23rd). Join us for food, fun, art, music and charity as we encourage food donations to 325zeroHunger. Bring any Mardi Gras bead donations as well to be thrown that night and in the parade. Happy Mardi Gras!

Any Captain in the Pirates of Lost Treasure Mardi Gras Boat Parade is welcome to bring their boat through the Villagio Towne Centre parking lot for blessing anytime between 5:00pm and 7:00pm. The Villagio is located at 13700 Perdido Key Drive Pensacola, Florida.

325ZeroHunger Charity Contributions
Bring food for the hungry. 325ZeroHunger is working with seven (7) elementary and middle schools in our geographic area and will make sure that our food contributions are distributed to those children and families in need in our area.  We encourage our party guests to bring a food contribution for this wonderful charity. The following food items would be greatly appreciated by families this organization serves:  Pasta,Pasta Sauce (in a can, not glass), Rice, Canned Beans, Canned Chicken,Canned Tuna, Chili, Ravioli, Peanut Butter, Cereal, Oatmeal, Grits.

This party at Artworks is one small chance for us to help address local childhood hunger, but it is a HUGE part in the lives of those children. Bring any of the items suggested above as your contribution. Donations will also be accepted. 

Local Artists
This is another great opportunity for the community to meet our local artists in residence at Artworks Studio & Gallery which will be open throughout the event. Purchase a little original art for your walls, postcards to mail to your family and friends, jewelry or gift certificates for those whom you are just not quite sure what to buy them.

Special thanks to our Artworks Captain, Mark Futrell. Thanks, Mark. Without you, we'd be up the creek without a paddle. 

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
