Marco Island Center for the Arts is introducing its new fun-raising event, ARTini on Marco Party. This event will shake up some fun and funds to benefit Marco Island Center for the Arts. It will include live entertainment, dancing, a silent auction and of course, martini tastings. These carefully crafted mini cocktails will be shaken, stirred, poured and served by guest Personality Plus Bartenders who in their work life are known for their cheerful, captivating and cool vibes in the community. The “Bartenders” will be competing for tips for a prize at the end of the event. Wine and a non-alcoholic beverage will also be served. Delectable hors d’oeuvres and decadent chocolate will balance your palate.
ARTini on Marco Party takes place on Thursday, January 18, 2018, from 5:30 – 7 PM. The price is only $50 for members and $55 for non-members.
