OROC & Artworks Christmas Party

     OROC and Artwork's co-hosted Christmas Party was a huge success. There were plenty of wonderful appetizers and beverages provided by members of OROC and artists from the gallery. Several hundred dollars of new, unwrapped toys were donated to the Marines' Toys-for-Tots program (Noah delivered these the following morning). Talis Jayme and Noah Moseley welcomed everyone to this joint Christmas Party. Arlene Carr and Michael Bennett spoke about OROC's  donations of ten (10) winter jackets to local area kids and OROC presented $300 to the local Boys & Girls Club. Special thanks to everyone who brought toys, food, drinks and to Christie Taylor for being an exceptional bartender and to Pat McCann who played Christmas music for us throughout the evening. Merry Christmas to you all!
