For something seriously fun to do this month, check out this crowd-pleasing event: Arts Benicia’s Art Auction & Gala, September 23, 2017, 6:30-10:30pm. Wine and nibbles, amazing art and much more make for a highly entertaining evening. All are welcome as art lovers, collectors and those wanting to know more about art will travel from around the Bay Area to gather at Benicia’s most exciting annual fundraiser.
This year’s theme is Arts Benicia Celebrates! 30 Years of Creativity and Community. Commemorating their founding in 1987, the evening’s festivities will include hors d’oeuvres from the First Street Café, a silent auction of artwork and adventure packages, an exciting live art auction, a fun photo corner from Featherstone Studios, music by DJ AL3X, dancing and dessert. An auction kick-off to preview silent and live auction artworks will be held September 7 at the gallery. Also check out the online preview, which will include a “buy it now” feature of selected art works.
The event is Arts Benicia’s most important fundraiser; crucial for the support of its programs that make Benicia and the Bay Area a more cultured, livable place. Programs include exhibitions, art classes, children’s programs and special events. Tickets are $45 per person in advance and $55 per person at the door. Get tickets early as this spectacular event usually sells out. Available online at artsbenicia.org/tickets and at Bookshop Benicia.
