Tickets available for Celebrate the Arts Luncheon

By LINDSAY DYESS / Community Columnist

Join us for the Celebration of the Arts Luncheon on Feb. 22 to support the community outreach efforts of the Shelby County Arts Council.

Each year, the Culture, Novella and Vignette Federated Women’s Clubs of Columbiana gather together to host this fundraising luncheon.

Money raised supports the SCAC outreach programs such as ArtAbilities, which provides art and music lessons to students with special needs at county schools at no cost to the school; Writing our Stories, a program which provides three local middle schools with a creative writing program through the partnership with the Alabama Writers Forum; and art classes to at-risk youth at the Juvenile Detention Center.

The luncheon doors will open at 10 a.m. at the Grande Hall at the Shelby County Arts Center, located at 105 West College St. in Columbiana.

You will have the opportunity to shop the art sale, with all work created by local artists, and meet some of the SCAC’s artists and instructors.

The lunch and entertainment will begin at 11 a.m.

This year’s luncheon is catered by The Fish Market, and there will be live entertainment by Three on a String.

Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at Shelbycountyartscouncil.com/happenings. Reserved tables for eight are also available for $250.
