Gala Chairs, Julie & Sonny Bonacio, and their dedicated committee members invite the community to support Saratoga Bridges at their 22nd Annual Gala “The White Party – Havana Nights” held on July 16 from 6:30-11PM at FASIG TIPTON in Saratoga
Springs. This will be the 1st fundraiser held at this prestigious venue in 2011.
The event will feature food by Hall of Springs Catering, Open Bar Courtesy of DIAGEO, music by GRAVITY, Décor by Fine Affairs, A Silent and Live Auction and a cigar roller and Arthur Murray Dancers of Saratoga Springs. People who bring their invitation to encounter, Saratoga Trunk or Violet’s & Stella’s of Saratoga can receive 10% off their dress for the event. The Pink Paddock is giving away a Lilly Pulitzer Tote with dress purchase.
Saratoga Bridges’ Creative Endeavors artists have donated their piece “Victory
Lane” for the Live Auction. The original torn cardboard collage (38″ x 46″) is a collaborative effort.
The effect is quite painterly, and the pieces transform at different viewing distances. This green project allows people to work together while learning about color and developing a greater appreciation and understanding of art. For many, it was their first exposure to
making art through this process. They have gained confidence in their creative ability and have gone on to explore different media. As a result, art has become an important part of their lives. The estimated value is $1,045. The artists will be at the event to show other pieces. Visit Creative Endeavors Artists on the web at http://creativeendeavorsartists.com
