An evening of live art, hot food, and cool drinks will bring together Yambar and Boney with Lauren Lindvig acting as host. Tony Nicholas will be on hand to photograph the event, which will feature a 50/50 Raffle and hand drawn coaster art from Yambar.
All tips and proceeds will benefit The Legal Creative, an Ohio nonprofit corporation currently in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
The Fine Art Council of Trumbull County (FACT) recently announced that they will be providing Fiscal Sponsorship for The Legal Creative until tax exempt status is secured. FACT was established in 1971 when six community organizations recognized the need for mutual support & coordination of the arts and cultural organizations. Their mission is "to improve the quality of life in Trumbull County, by fostering the arts." For information, visit trumbullarts.org.
In addition to any funds raised that evening, an anonymous donor has graciously agreed to match all funds raised during this event, up to $1,500.00. Anyone who wishes to donate but cannot attend the event should make checks payable to the Legal Creative/FACT or The Legal Creative via FACT.
No reservations are required for the event.
