Bon Appetit!

I thought I’d start off with the goods this time! Here’s the flier for the Potluck artshow/food drive May 13 and 14.  It’s a food themed artshow with over 35 contributing artists!  What’s even more special about this event is we’ve teamed up with the Greenwood/Phinney food bank to make for a more meaningful experience.  In addition to a kick-butt artshow, we’re also conducting a food drive in the form of a raffle.  We have several local businesses and artists who’ve donated graciously to our raffle!  To get in on the shwag and help support the food bank…bring cold hard cash or a non-perishable food donation…ALL (100%) OF THE MONEY AND FOOD RAISED FROM THE RAFFLE GOES DIRECTLY TO THE GREENWOOD/PHINNEY FOOD BANK!!!
