Annual Fundraising Events
Chocolate Fantasy and Art Auction

Chocolate Fantasy & Art Auction is coming soon, so mark your calendar for Saturday evening, February 28, 2004 from 7:00 - 10:30 p.m. Set in the Grand Ballroom of the CH2M Alumni Center, this annual fundraising event is known as the most elegant evening in the region. Sample scrumptious chocolate desserts created by our region's finest chefs, chat with friends, enjoy live music, and bid on original artwork - all for the cause of keeping the arts at the center of our community!

The table themes for 2004 are: The Art of Dining, The Art of the Getaway, The Art of Adventure, The Art of the Eclectic, The Art of Nature, and The Art of Chocolate. Six artists have been asked to create a unique art "centerpiece" to match the theme of each table. If you would like a sneak preview of these artworks, come to ArtCentrics' Readers Theatre production, "Love and Chocolate," on Sunday, February 8, 2004 at 7:00 p.m. That night ONLY we will offer Chocolate Fantasy & Art Auction tickets for $5 off the regular price (members $35; non-members $40). PLUS, you will see a wonderful show to set the mood for Valentine's Day and have a sneak preview of the six artworks!
