October 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
October First Friday Art Walk! Benefit directly funding Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shawnee County!
We are VERY EXCITED to host a very special FFAW! Crooked Post Winery is pledging 20% of sales or $1,000 whichever is more. Bobby’s Food Company is pledging 10% of his sales. Kevin and Julie Kirkwood are donating their very popular KC Chiefs photograph for raffle with 100% going towards BBBS. They are also donating a portion of sales from their other pictures they will have for sale. We have always been a part of the Brew HaHa, a major fundraiser that had to be cancelled this year. We are in high hopes of helping this organization make up the difference.
All of the donated proceeds from this night will also be matched dollar for dollar in thanks to a number of generous donors in our community, Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters “Matching Mentors”. Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters matches youth facing adversity with caring, adult mentors outside of their home. The belief that all youth – regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or family background – can achieve success in life; especially with the guidance and support of a caring adult mentor. These one-to-one professionally-supported friendships last a minimum of one year. However, the effects of these friendships last a lifetime. Please consider supporting this organization in 2020!
Music – The Alliance! They play the music you enjoy. Popular and danceable tunes from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. They put a twist on classic rock, pop, blues, and country songs you know and love. Can’t wait to hear them!
Art – The very beautiful and popular photographs of Kirkwood Kreations by Kevin and Julie; absolutely breathtaking works of art we will have displayed inside and outside!
Food – Bobby’s Food Company! Will have his huge trailer with many delicious food choices right outside of upper patio. Love having them!
We are encouraging a wide use of our space by allowing others to enter the event room to view the photographs, bid, listen to music and then let others in to do the same. There will be chairs set up outside and possibly photographs too, weather permitting. We will have donation jars set up in both rooms with every penny being matched by The Matching Mentors! Our county has supplied us with many facemasks for anyone to have and will have them available at various locations throughout our building for everyone’s safety and comfort level.
Music, wine and cheese. Shopping, painting classes, summertime events and special dinners.
Our goal is to keep it quaint and special, all the time.
