CHARAC’s annual fund raiser, A Toast to Art, will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Comfort Suites in Hayward. This year we plan to keep some of the old as well as add some new features.
You will still be able to enjoy the appetizers donated by local restaurants and caterers which many people have raved about. We are also keeping the auctions and raffles, though the format and timing for bidding will be changed up. Your chance to bid on art and wine themed items in the silent auction, or to purchase a more expensive item or experience in the live auction. We will also have some lovely baskets to raffle that have been donated by local businesses. We are also keeping the live music but we will be adding a segment featuring our new board member, Stacy Hughes, who is a well-known local singer.
And, of course, we will keep the wine bar and the lovely hand-painted wine glasses, but we are adding a beer bar where you can enjoy a selection of beers. Remember the tasting is free, you just pay when you purchase a glass.
This is always a fun-filled evening when you can dress up a little, mingle with your friends, taste some really good food, and help out the local arts council. The proceeds from the evening go to support local art programs, and artists with grants and scholarships. This is the only fundraiser that CHARAC has during the year so don’t miss it! Mark your calendar today for May 18!
Tickets will be available at the door the night of the event for $30.
