On May 3rd TACHP hosted it’s annual benefit, titled ‘Expanding Our Horizons’. We had food, cocktails, entertainment, activities, a silent auction, two honorees and Channel 5 News anchor, Zoraida Sambolin as guest host. We exceeded our goals, hosted over 250 people and, in general, we considered it a success and all took a deep breath Friday night when it ended.
Then MONDAY we started working on the Festival of Fine Arts (June 22, 23 in front of TACHP, extending to Central and a block east and west). We also had the Wine Stroll, Uncorked, with the Chamber of Commerce and Friday, May 17 (tonight as this is being written), we have the artist reception for Streaming Reflections and enLIGHTen, featuring the work of artist Bert Leveille and many others.
That’s the short list. We’ve also committed to Wednesday night in Highwood, the evening gourmet market, and Thursday Food Truck nights in Jens Jensen Park, HP. Keed in mind we also run a full series of classes, day and night, with summer and a youth art program starting in a few weeks so . . . Are we too busy?
YES. Definitely. But we consider it our service to our community and want to make sure that anyone looking for something fun, interesting and a good time checks to see what we have going at TACHP. And we could use some help.
Volunteers are desperately needed to act as docents in the galleries, give out info during the Wednesday and Thursday night events, and for a whole slew of jobs during the Festival of Fine Arts. Please contact us at 847-432-1888, or email us. We can work with any schedule and any amount of time you might offer.
Let’s keep busy!
