2013 Evening with the Arts
All That Jazz
While the music was played, guests helped themselves to finger foods from De'Claires, played the Match Pack Raffle with 288 wonderful gifts, placed bids on the Silent Auction, had their photos taken by Brian Lintala against a terrific backdrop, and took chances on Split-the-Pot. Richard Eubanks was the lucky winner and promptly donated half of his winnings right back to the Markay. Hurray for Richard!!!
Keys were purchased for the Jewelry Treasure Chest with three elegant necklace and earring sets graciously donated by A. L. Terry Jewelers. Alan, Jeanine, and Alex Terry looked splendid as they helped folks try out their keys. Alana Billman, Blanche Brandon, and Rachel Ditmer all happily went home with new additions to their jewelry collections.
Emcee Mark Anderson settled everyone down a little after 8 p.m. Executive Director Barbara Summers brought folks up to speed on all the progress in the Markay's renovation since last March. Mark commented on the Markay's importance in the fabric of cultural life in the area.
Patrick Ball got us into the spirit of the Art Auction in short order. His incomparable enthusiasm is infectious and folks rose to the occasion. Of course, Patrick's job was simplified by an outstanding collection of art donated by our astounding artist friends. Thanks to each and every one of them for giving us such an amazing selection.
