Feeling blue lately with all this rain? I know my umbrella sure has gotten a work out lately! Let's look past the raindrops to a fun event coming up in the community. Do you want to support the arts in our community? Well, have I got a fun way that you, your company or your organization can accomplish that. Make that three ways!
Attend Kick Up Your Heels IX at the Walk In Art Center on Saturday, September 15 from 7 pm to 10 pm. This year's theme is Hope & Glory: Swinging Art of the 1940s. In keeping with the year's patriotic theme the music will be provided by Tim Hill and the After Hours Big Band. Music won't be the only entertainment -- the members of Schuylkill Free Shakespeare will be trading in their swords and gowns for uniforms and Rosie the Riveter overalls as they liven up the party as the Greatest Generation come alive. There'll also be hors d'ouevres, dinner, dessert, drinks, silent auctions and art sales. Tickets are $75 in advance or $85 at the door. Or for the VIP price of $100 you will experience all that as well as an extra hour (6 pm to 7 pm) of special fun. Active military and veterans receive 20% discount.
Sponsor a Star. Naturally, given this year's theme one of the big decorations of the evening will be stars. One of those stars can commemorate your favorite veteran for just $10. Stars will be displayed until December 2018 and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a Schuylkill County Veterans Organization.
Sponsor a Table. Those attending Kick Up Your Heels IX can learn more about your organization through the marketing materials you use to decorate a table at the event. Sponsors will also receive publicity through social media, website, radio, press releases and more. You can also receive gift certificates for Walk In Art Center classes and admission to Kick Up Your Heels IX. Learn more about being an event sponsor.
