More than 100 in attendance declared last Saturday’s Art on Fire – Take Two, an evening of culture, cocktails, music, and conversation a huge success and one of the best social events of the Seminole County Summer.
The event, the second installment of the Woolfork Avenue Art, History and Cultural Center fund-raising campaign, was held at the Osceola Event Company inside the historic Osceola Hotel in downtown Donalsonville Saturday evening, July 29th from 6 to 10 p.m.
The event where attendees were treated to a gracious presentation of heavy hors d’oeuvres, a fired-up drink menu, music from the True Blue Band, dancing, and a Seminole County student art exhibition, raised more than $8,000. Combined with the $12,000 raised in the May 19 Art on Fire gala kickoff event, the two events have raised more than $20,000.
All proceeds from these events will be used to fund the transformation of downtown Donalsonville’s historic Fire Station complex into the Woolfork Avenue Cultural Center.
A huge thank you goes out to the event’s planning committee, every person who purchased a ticket, Danielle Barnard, who graciously sponsored the band for the evening, the Osceola Event Company and the Corner Bistro.
