A Purpose to Pour: Silent Auction and Concert Benefiting SMART!
Sunday, October 13, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Find your purpose to pour! From modern to vintage, A Purpose to Pour will showcase an array of sculptures, paintings, photography, fashion and home décor. While perusing and bidding on the work of Nashville's best artisans, enjoy unique bites from Pour House Burgers, Bourbon & Brews & two glass of your favorite drink (and even add a flight of bourbon!)
In the midst of it all, Americana Radio Chart Topping-artist Jonell Mosser and Nashville-based, national touring artist Jim Oblon will serenade the night. A Purpose to Pour celebrates the beauty of being artistic and environmentally-conscious. The proceeds and purpose will benefit SMART! Scrap Made Art supplies, a recycled art store that will support people with intellectual disabilities.
Perfect way to enjoy Artober & give back!
A Purpose to Pour will benefit SMART!, Scrap Made Art supplies, a great new social enterprise that will employ people with intellectual disabilities and keep scraps out of our beautiful city's landfill!
