Hot Time Raises $2,300

This week has been snowy, icy and unusually frigid, but it was a hot time at BelmarArts this past Sunday, January 19, with Bloody Mary Sunday.  The event was held to raise funds to improve the air conditioning at the home of BelmarArts, the Boatworks.  Cars filled the parking lot as members and guests streamed in during the afternoon to visit, eat, listen to the music of Davey and Chard -- and try a Bloody Mary if so desired.  Door prizes were handed out through out the 4-hour period to keep anticipation high.  The result -- $2,300 was added to the air conditioning fund.

While the party went on in the Big Room guests enjoyed Whimsy - Members Art Show and Salon in the front Gallery.  The show continues through February 1 if you haven't seen it yet.

Many volunteers and local merchants made the day a success.  A special thanks to those who worked and to D'Jais, Belmar Cafe, Ragin' Cajun, Glenside Trading, Stay Gold, Gerrie's Sweet Bouquet, and the BelmarArts Trustees for their contributions of food and door prizes. The event was chaired by BelmarArts co-chairmen Ali Martin and John Hutchinson and BelmarArts Trustee Joe Villa.
