To the Editor:
Thank you to everyone who helped make our Member Appreciation Party, “Fabulous Fakes with a Twist,” a huge success on January 22.
The Boca Grande Art Center was proud to provide a fun night at no charge for all of our members to thank THEM for supporting the Art Center by attending shows, taking classes and coming to lectures.
The Art Center is an important part of this community, and we take pride in our programs at The Island School, our collaboration with other nonprofits and our commitment to enhance the lives of all residents.
We would like to thank all of the artists who donated a Fun Fake to our raffle. Also to Royal Palm Players for ‘acting it up’ and adding the extra color by way of famous artists on site! Thank you to Newlin’s for catering, Fat Point Brewery for the beer tasting, and Chuck Lange for the music.
And finally, a huge thank you to Tom and Nancy Tussing, without whose support of this evening we would not have been able to provide such fine food and fun entertainment.
On behalf of the Boca Grande Art Center and the Event Committee, thank you all!
Tonya Doherty,
Executive Director
Boca Grande Art Center
