On Friday, November 13, the Marco Island Center for the Arts and the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts are bringing a special evening full of luck, fun, good food, laughter and wonderful art to the Center for the Arts, beginning at 5:30 PM. The signature drink for the evening, the “Green Flash” will begin the fun, along with a special Wheel of Fortune. Guests will have a chance to win a variety of art pieces and special opportunities. The evening will include a buffet provided by Stonewalls to delight palettes with a variety of good food.
Unique pieces of art for home or mailbox (Yes, that’s right – mailbox brackets) painted by local well-known artists will be available for bidding during the silent auction from 5:30-6:45 PM, followed by a live auction of 13 beautiful paintings beginning at 7 PM. The auctioneer will be Chris Lombardo, who is known for his humor and love of art. Chris will bring even more luck to the winning bidders.
The thirteen well-known artists include: Carolyn Burger, Diane Eiler, Inez Hudson, Hannah Ineson, Claire Keery, Bill Moseley, Betty Newman, Tara O’Neill, Phyllis Pransky, Jo-Ann Sanborn, Joan Scherer and Malenda Trick. Proceeds will be used for student scholarships next spring.
This special event will be fun and bring you more luck than any other Friday the 13th.
