The 2019 Brew and Art Festival was wildly successful thanks to the combined efforts of Curry Arts and Soroptimist International of Gold Beach. The two community groups combined forces as more than 100 volunteers performed, served and displayed original art for beer and art lovers who packed the Event Center on Saturday, June 22.
The Curry Arts board took action to donate $6,800 of their portion of the event proceeds to the Gold Beach arts and music programs.
This raises the total donated to these important local programs to over $30,000 in the past several years.
Curry Arts’ Brew & Art Festival proceeds go directly into the art and music classrooms of Gold Beach and a portion funds scholarships. The instructional donations are made to a “290 Fund” that is managed by the classroom teachers and used to purchase art and music supplies. The donations cannot be used to replace school funding that is diverted for other purposes.
Plans are already underway for the 2020 Brew and Art Festival, scheduled for Saturday June 27.
Mark your calendars for another fantastic event!
