My First School's second annual art auction was a tremendous success. The art auction was a fundraiser for the cooperative school. Ross Galleries conducted the auction and provided attendees with entertainment and art education as well. In addition to the beautiful pieces auctioned from the gallery, six pieces crafted by students were also auctioned to the highest bidder.
Sandmark Coffee provided a gourmet coffee tasting. La Bella Bakery, Marianna's Bakery, Tulip Bake Shop and Buttercooky generously donated food for the event. Cantina, Poppy's Place and Jack Duggans provided a complimentary drink to art auction attendees who purchased an entrée.
The following local merchants generously donated door prizes: Classic Flower Design, Butterfly Garden, Tulip Sweet Shop, Manor Fruit Shop, Jameson's, Steward Spirits Shop, Best Paint, Mady's Attic, Tulip Florist, Associated, Fox & Co., Tulip Barber Shop, Covert Nail Salon, Nail Garden, Carats by Stacey, Beverly Palm, Sisters (L. Greco & M. Ranieri), Secret Garden (D. McGovern) and Pampered Chef (T. Zacchea). Please patronize these generous merchants when shopping.
We would like to thank the Floral Park Dispatch for its coverage of this event. We would also like to thank everyone who attended our auction and all the volunteers who helped make the evening a success. A special thank you to our host, United Methodist Church and Reverend Gainus Sykes and staff, for all their help and support.
