Art of the Martini fundraiser in February

Art-of-the-martini

Volunteers needed to help with event and artists needed for silent auction

The Society of Bluffton Artists (SoBA) non-profit art organization will present its first big fundraiser of 2019 with Art of the Martini from 5-7 p.m. February 16 at Oscar Frazier Community Center in Bluffton.

The fun-filled evening will include live entertainment, two complimentary martinis for each person (from which there will be six varieties to choose), hors d’oeuvres from The Cottage and unique offerings for a silent auction. Each guest will take home a complimentary, hand-painted martini glass to remember the evening.

Purchase Tickets

Tickets are $45 and help support SoBA’s outreach art programs, art workshops and operating expenses that support the community. Tickets are available for sale online at sobagallery.com or at the gallery located in Old Town Bluffton.

“These tickets will make great Christmas gifts!” said Lynda Hawley, event coordinator.

SoBA members are asked to purchase two tickets and to sell two tickets — which can be picked up from the gallery on Friday, December 21. Volunteers are needed to set up and break down the event, bartend with premixed martinis, food and greeting. Additionally, to make the silent auction a success, event coordinators need 25 unique pieces of art in the following categories: art to wear such as jewelry, stoneware, wood, sculpture, up-cycled furniture, photography and paintings.

If you are interested in submitting art, please send a photograph of the items you wish to donate by e-mailing [email protected] or [email protected]

“Help us to make this an event to remember and thank you in advance for supporting SoBA!” said Hawley.
