The Fourth Annual Arts at the Center
Festival helps to add digital mammography
Friday, November 19, 2010 – 6:30-9:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 20, 2010 – 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Give your holiday season a classy start at a celebration of local artistic talent, where guests can purchase one-of-a-kind gifts ranging from woodcrafts and handmade jewelry to paintings and framed photographs.
Your attendance at the Fourth Annual Arts at the Center, sponsored by the Parma Hospital Auxiliary on November 19-20, also will support the acquisition of digital mammography at Parma Hospital. Digital mammography offers superior image clarity and a quicker and easier patient experience.
“We look forward to another fabulous and fun event to showcase local artists and enhance Parma Hospital’s relationship-based care,” says Andrea Sack, Parma Hospital’s director of Volunteer Services. “This is a great way to support community health and wellness and get your holiday shopping off to a fine start.”
The two-day event begins with “Blue Hawaii,” a preview reception on November 19 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. that includes a cocktail party and an opportunity to purchase art in advance of Saturday’s public show. Guests at the casual but classy cocktail reception on Friday evening are encouraged to wear their favorite Hawaiian attire to enjoy a luau-themed menu and music by Akin for Jazz. The event will be held at St. Michael’s Woodside, 5025 East Mill Road, Broadview Heights.
The juried arts and fine crafts festival will showcase the work of 30 area artisans, including woodcrafters, painters, photographers and jewelry designers. Guests at the Friday evening event will have the opportunity to preview and purchase the unique pieces on display while enjoying exquisite cuisine and cocktails, and a variety of wines provided by Heidelberg Distributing Company, a presenting sponsor. Other platinum sponsors include Koler Financial Group, Parma Hospital Health Care Foundation and PNC Bank.
Tickets for the Friday preview event are $50. For tickets, call 440-743-2371. The Saturday show, held from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m., is free and open to the public. Bring a nonperishable food item to benefit the Yuletide Hunger Drive sponsored by the cities of Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Independence and Seven Hills.
“The healing power of art has a strong connection to our health, wellness and well-being,” said Parma Hospital President & CEO Terrence G. Deis. “The benefits are many, and various. Art therapy has shown the ability to lower stress, provide an outlet to express feelings, renew the spirit and provide hope. For nearly 50 years, Parma Community General Hospital has been part of this community and the lives of its people. It is only fitting that Arts at the Center provides a forum for area artisans to display their own creative and healing talents while benefitting the acquisition of digital mammography services.
“We graciously thank the Parma Hospital Auxiliary and their support of our focused efforts on women’s health and the new HealthiHer program,” Deis added.
