Arts Alive “The Art of the Holiday” Event Set for Nov 19

Get into the holiday spirit with Arts Alive’s third annual “The Art of the Holiday” fundraising event at Tibbits Opera House on Tuesday, Nov 19 from 5:30-8:30pm.

This fundraiser will provide attendees with several hours of food, drink, giveaways, raffles, and holiday fun! This year, all the holiday fun takes place on the stage, so tickets will be limited. Attendees can plan to enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres while learning new recipes, mingling with friends over coffee and dessert, and creating a beautiful holiday craft while taking in the surrounding décor.

“Every year we have fine-tuned this festive event based on feedback from our attendees. You’ll take home several goodies and lots of ideas to help create your perfect holiday gathering!” said Stephanie Burdick, Arts Alive event coordinator.

Leigh Arts,  Mabel Hart, Hauska Home & Farm, Inc.,  JT’s Billiard Bar & Grill, Natures Gaze Gallery, Tasteful Kreations, Katharine Taylor, and Tordue Chocolates.
