Unique arts and fine crafts festival
helps to acquire a new patient courtesy van
Sixth Annual Arts at the Center held November 16-17
Kick off a great holiday season – and support community health and wellness – by attending the Sixth Annual Arts at the Center, a juried arts and fine crafts festival sponsored by the Parma Hospital Auxiliary on November 16-17 at St. Michael’s Woodside, 5025 East Mill Road, Broadview Heights. Local artists will present one-of-a-kind pieces ranging from metal work, melted glass and giclee to handmade jewelry, pottery and photography.
Enjoy a special preview and the opportunity to purchase unique items first at the Diamonds and Denim opening event on Friday, November 16, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to don their favorite Southwestern attire and enjoy cocktails and exquisite cuisine, plus music by Akin for Jazz. Beer and wine has been donated by Heidelberg Distributing, which is a Diamond Sponsor along with Cox Business, Corporate Jewelers and the Parma Hospital Health Care Foundation.
Tickets for the Diamonds and Denim preview are $50 per person. For tickets, call 440-743-2371. The Saturday show, held from 9 a.m.–4 p.m., is free and open to the public.
Proceeds from this year’s Arts at the Center will go toward the provision of the Home Run Van service, which brings patients to Parma Hospital for tests, procedures or surgery who have no other means of transportation. In 2011 alone, the Home Ran Van made over 6,400 trips.
“We are thrilled with the generous support we have received from corporate sponsors, volunteers, employees, and community leaders,” says Andrea Sack, Parma Hospital’s director of Volunteer Services. “This event is successful because of the many people who attend this great show, and for the works of fabulous artisans who are so talented. We look forward to another wonderful show, and we are proud to support community health and wellness. Please come out and get your holiday shopping off to a good start, and know that you are contributing to a
very worthy cause.”
