It’s a great party, but an even greater cause, as the Wine, Eats & Easels event returns to Broken Arrow on Friday, June 13, 2014, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 in advance at several ticket outlets and $50 at the door the night of the event.
This year’s event will again be held at the Farmer’s Market and Broken Arrow Historical Society Museum, both located in downtown Broken Arrow at 418 S. Main St.
Patrons are treated to an evening of food, wine, art and music. Dozens of wine vendors from across the area come together with local food establishments to create an atmosphere of taste and culture. Nearly a dozen artists will be on site displaying their work for sale and also be performing live art exhibits. And local jazz enthusiast Grady Nichols will also be on hand to perform again as this year’s headliner.
The most rewarding aspect of the evening is the cause the event celebrates. Proceeds go to benefit Broken Arrow Neighbors, which helps aid area families who need extra assistance with clothing, money, school supplies, medical help and other unexpected situations.
“We are so excited to move our event to June instead of October as it has been in the past,” said event chair LaTonya Cundiff. “The weather seems to be better and makes people want to celebrate outdoors. Plus, it allows us to get the message out of how important Broken Arrow Neighbors is to this community. Our corporate sponsors are the lifeblood of this event, and we are always interested in having more join the team!”
Partnering with the Broken Arrow Arts & Humanities Council, the event brings together some of the most eclectic and diverse artists from across the region. Artists have their art for sale and stick around to talk to patrons about their work.
In addition to the food, wine and art, special surprises will be on hand as well, including the world famous Butt Sketch artists, a wine pull, live art demonstrations, photo booths and more.
Wine, Eats & Easels is presented by the Friends of Broken Arrow, Broken Arrow Arts & Humanities Council, the City of Broken Arrow and the Broken Arrow Historical Society Museum. Tickets are available at all AVB Bank locations, Holiday Inn Express in Broken Arrow next to Bass Pro Shops, Epic Salon and Broken Arrow Neighbors.
