“Puccini & Pasta” to Benefit Arts in Education
Crockett- It’s that time again!! The annual Piney Woods Fine Arts Gala benefiting Arts in Education!! The theme for this year’s Gala is “Puccini & Pasta!!” There will be live entertainment, live & silent auctions, dinner, and more. It will be held at Carrabba’s La Bella Vista in Crockett on Saturday April 20, at 7:00pm. All proceeds from this event go to our Arts in Education programs benefiting the children of Houston and the surrounding counties.
PWFAA has been providing arts education programs to students in Houston and the surrounding counties for 21 years!! We strive to educate and enrich the children through exposure to the visual and performing arts. We have had great success because of the continued support from the community. Arts education programs benefit children in many ways; from developing cognitive thinking skills to boosting self-confidence and esteem, these programs ensure our children become the best students they can be!
Some of the items up for bid in the auctions include but are not limited to, a Branson, Mo vacation package, a trip to Canada, a lady’s white gold and sapphire tennis bracelet, VIP passes for the Texas State Railroad and much, much more!! With authentic Italian cuisine served for dinner, this will be a fun-filled evening for all who attend. The support generated at the Gala will allow the PWFAA to continue providing and expanding its Arts in Education programs.
Tickets are $40 or you can reserve a table of eight for $800. Each table reserved supports four scholarship students for one week at the Jim Jeffries Summer Arts Workshop. The dress for the evening is cocktail attire and RSVP’s are required.
