A Fun, Participatory Anderson Valley Arts (AVArts) Fundraising Event. The time has come for another whacky and fun community participation fundraiser for Anderson Valley Arts (AVArts) with the upcoming Pie in the Sky! The event will be held at Lauren's on Sunday, April 27th from 3:00 pm — 6:00 pm. All proceeds from Pie in the Sky* will support AVArts' scholarships and supplemental arts programs in the schools. Paula Gray and Patti Liddy will be the co-emcees for a live auction featuring pie- and pi- inspired art created by Anderson Valley artists including Deanna Apfel, Susan Bridge-Mount, Peggy Dart, Sonia Gill, Paula Gray, Susan Gross, Wally Hopkins, Rebecca Johnson, Xenia King, Tom McFadden, Alexis Moyer, Helen Papke, Marvin Schenck, Jody Williams and Michael Wilson. A silent auction of edible pies from talented local bakers including Karen Bates, Rich Ferguson, Valerie Hanelt, Corey Morse and Judy Nelson will also be part of this festive event. Enjoy a glass of wine from Bink Wines, Breggo, Brutocao Cellars, Greenwood Ridge Vineyards, Husch Vineyards, Lula Cellars, Signal Ridge Vineyard and Toulouse Vineyards along with a selection of tasty finger foods. AVArts has supported arts education in Anderson Valley since 1999, reinforcing community spirit and making the arts a more visible and lively presence in the valley. Over the years the non-profit has awarded many scholarships to graduating seniors pursuing the study of art in college and to students in grades 3-12 to attend special arts-related classes, workshops and events. AVArts grants also support supplemental arts programming in the elementary and high schools, helping bring diverse, high quality visual, literary and performing arts programs to Anderson Valley students that would otherwise not be possible.
Tickets are available, for $20 at All That Good Stuff, Lauren's and Rookie-To. For more information, call 707-895-2204 or visit www.av-arts.org. Thanks for your support and for helping spread the word about the event!
