The tradition of raising funds to support residents with disabilities goes deep in Amador and
December 7, 2013 repeats a tradition over 40 years in the making as The
Arc hosts its annual fundraiser at the American Legion Hall in Sutter Hill
while highlighting local Artists in ArCreations! Calaveras
The event raises money for programs and services provided to adults with disabilities. Local business, Terra d’Oro Winery, will highlight the amazing annual ArCreations! event by being one of the title sponsors supporting The Arc of Amador and Calaveras, pouring their local wine.
ArCreations! is one of the many creative attractions of The Arc’s programs. Unique gifts of arts and crafts created by unique people will be featured and on sale at the 2013 ArCreations! event, Saturday, December 7 at the American Legion Hall in Sutter Hill.
To draw attention to the rich culture of local artists there will be “Paint by the Glass”. A creative way to learn to paint alongside friends and family, while artist/instructor Judy Day shows step-by-step how to paint a local wine country landscape on canvas, and painters enjoy local wines and hors d’oeuvres at a “Paint by the Glass” workshop. The tax deductible ticket for the class is $45 and includes two beverage tickets for wine, canvas and art supplies. Don’t forget to register and reserve your easel.
ArCreations! is FREE and everyone is welcome to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and no-host wine while they view and shop for affordable gifts of art and crafts, beginning at 5 pm. Select pieces will be sold by silent auction, closing at 6 pm.
Members of The Arc are invited to the popular hour of “early bird” shopping from 4 – 5 pm (non-members can join at the door and support The Arc with a $25 individual membership).
ArCreations! is a unique arts education program developed by The Arc of Amador and Calaveras to enhance self-esteem and expression in the people served by The Arc, a local non-profit organization serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the two counties.
Proceeds from ArCreations! go to the individual artists and to a fund that supports the ArCreations! program at The Arc.
