Fremont Abbey Turns 6 & You’re Invited To The Birthday Party

By master · November 16th, 2011 · No Comments

Saturday, November 19th, the Fremont Abbey Arts Center turns six-years-old and they’re throwing a birthday party for themselves.

Please invite your friends, dress up a bit if you like (indie formal anyone?), and join us for a multi-arts celebration to sustain the Arts Center’s programs for all ages & incomes.

We had approximately 29,000 attendance at our programs in 2010 and we need your help to reach even more people with educational arts experiences & community interactions in 2012!  Our new “Arts Share” program is now offering tickets and classes to low income people (and nonprofit workers) around the city including Solid Ground’s family housing!

The event will feature live performances from John Van Deusen of The Lonely Forest + Mychal & Melodie of Campfire OK), a 3D Photobooth, an “unusual” silent auction, prizes and much, much more.

Deliciousness will be provided in the form of appetizers by The Upper Crust Catering and Madres Catering as well as desserts by Portage Bay Catering. The Abbey Cafe team offers Specialty Cocktails (Hot & Cold), plus great local beer and Washington wine.  Your entry ticket gets you food and at least 2 complimentary beer/wine tickets. Otherwise, it is a cash/credit bar.

There is a 5 p.m. free family hour but the main event begins at 7 p.m. Entrance starts at a $25 donation (but you can always give more if you like). You can also RSVP here.

If you’ve never been to the Abbey but always wondered what’s going on in there, there’s no better time to check it out than November 19.
