Flint, MI — June 1, 2019
The Flint Institute of Arts’ annual fundraiser is an important event on the annual calendar of the museum. Proceeds from this year’s event are going to benefit bus transportation and art materials for elementary and secondary students participating in FIA education programs.
The fundraiser is also quite the party. Great food, drinks, a fun social evening out for guests to don beautiful dresses and handsome suits. That’s why they call it “The Party.”
Food by Redwood Steakhouse
The chefs at Redwood Steakhouse & Brewery brought out the finest in cuisine to get The Party started. Shrimp, scallops, beef, lamb chops and an assortment of finger foods to tempt the palate.
Judging by the smiles on faces, The Party guests were enjoying their evening out at the museum. According to organizers, the crowd was one of the largest in recent years. Thanks to everyone for benefiting the programs of the FIA.
Art on the Wall, Interesting Art Forms, and Art in Automation
The art on the wall was amazing, holding The Party in the museum allows guests to stroll through the halls and enjoy the exhibits. Strolling works of art invited those in attendance to enter the raffle for a piece of artwork to take home and display on their wall. Art in Automation kept the drinks flowing and The Party going.
