Fundraiser set for Chelsea Center for the Arts

Recently, there has been some talk on the Chelsea-MI parenting group about the classes at Chelsea Center for the Arts. One of the moms was inviting others to join an art and music class for toddlers, which led to a discussion about all the wonderful classes and staff over at the CCA.

Coincidently, just moments after I had sent a message to the group talking about the great art classes my daughter took this summer, I received an email from Leslie Greeneisen, the program director at the CCA. It was a press release announcing their upcoming annual fundraiser, which is set to take place at the Dale Fisher Gallery and Reception Center in Grass Lake, MI on October 20 at 6:30 p.m.

Here is the official information:
Annual Fundraiser set for Chelsea Center for the Arts
October 20 is the date for this year's Autumn Jubilee celebration to benefit the Chelsea Center for the Arts. Proceeds from the event help to support quality arts and music programs for preschool to adult age students at the center which is located in one of the fastest growing arts communities in Michigan.

"Denim & Diamonds" is the theme for the 6:30 pm event being held at the Dale Fisher Gallery and Reception Center in Grass Lake. Attendees are encouraged to dress up their casual denim attire with anything that sparkles and enjoy a fun evening while supporting the arts. The facility affords barrier free access and ample parking.

The evening activities will consist of a strolling dinner with beverages catered by Simply Scrumptious. A silent auction will make available wonderful art, pottery, jewelry, entertainment, and baskets full of different items, followed by a live auction with Joe Merkel as auctioneer. Fabulous door prizes including a stay at the Grand Hotel, dinner at the Common Grill, and tickets for the Purple Rose Theatre will be given out during the night. Finally, music and dancing featuring "In the Pocket" band, will play from 9pm to midnight.

Co-chairs, Sally Wetzel and Barbara Ruth have brought together a terrific team of volunteers to gather donations and coordinate the party, making this whole evening an event not to be missed. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are still available for those interested in being a part of the benefit.

Honorary chairs for the event are Jim and Linda Cramer in recognition of their many years of contributions. Artist, Janet Alford, will also be honored for her dedication to the Center.

Tickets for the Autumn Jubilee are $100 per person. Groups of 8 or more will receive a 10% discount. After October 10th, all tickets will be $120 per person. For more information or to reserve your space, please call the CCA at 734-433-2787.
