21 Aug Artists: We Need Your Help
Artists and friends,
It’s hard to believe, but Nickel Plate Arts is about to celebrate our sixth year of existence! Much of our success is due to the support of the many talented, generous creatives in our artist network; some of whom have kindly volunteered to help ensure the success of our annual fundraiser and anniversary party. Organized by Bobbi Samples, one such artist and volunteer, “Forging Sweet Arts: Celebrating Six Years of Nickel Plate Arts” will be a gala event of fun and fundraising at The Mill Top Banquet and Conference Center on Wednesday, September 12th from 6:30-9:30pm. Dinner, live music, great art, and more are on the menu as we recognize the nominees of the annual Nickel Plate Arts Awards, celebrate our successes from the past year, and offer a variety of giving options to help us continue strengthening the arts community around us.
As a non-profit organization, we are fortunate to receive assistance in a variety of forms to support our mission. Darlene Patterson, a longtime Nickel Plate Arts supporter and active member of the local creative community, has kindly offered us her help in organizing our upcoming fundraiser. She has penned this letter in the hopes that you will consider joining her to aid our efforts by choosing from one of the requested options. With the help of Darlene, Bobbi, and you, our gala is sure to be a success on many levels!
We are grateful to all of the artists in our network who not only share our vision of highlighting the arts and culture in our area, but also help us in achieving our goals. Darlene and I thank you for your time and consideration.
