The irascible Oscar Wilde once opined that, “All art is quite useless.” While we understand the importance of being earnest (see what I did there?), we respectfully disagree with Wilde on this point. In fact, we’re going in the complete opposite direction. In the bleak midwinter, you can put some color back into the world by joining us at Brush Crazy to “Paint for a Cause.”
The team at Brush Crazy has made it as easy as 1-2-3 (think of it as paint and donate by numbers!):
1. Visit Brush Crazy on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2020, show them this post or just tell them you’re painting for NNEMAP. Drop in anytime (and bring the family–it’s kid-friendly!).
2. Paint whatever item you choose (staff is there to help get you started and give you pointers along the way)
3. NNEMAP Food Pantry gets a generous portion of the proceeds as a cash donation.
You make art, NNEMAP Food Pantry gets money. THAT is useful art! Come join us on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2020 anytime between 11am and 6pm. Chase the winter blues (and Dorian Grays?) away and support NNEMAP Food Pantry. Win-win!!!
We welcome your support any time. We won’t even make you paint for it. You can always make a secure online donation here. Thank you for your support. Every donation makes a difference in someone’s life!
WHAT?!? Believe it or not, the holiday season is bearing down upon us. NNEMAP Food Pantry invites you to kick off the festivities by joining us for the 1oth Annual Harmony for Hunger benefit concert. This event showcases talent from our supporting network of churches and also features a spectacular silent auction for browsing (and bidding!) before the show and during intermission.
This year we will be treated to an audible feast presented by the New World Singers. This premier performance and touring ensemble of the Columbus Children’s Choir regularly performs with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and Chorus to the delight of patrons far and wide.
WHEN?!? The Big Show will be Friday, November 15, 2019 at 7:30pm, but you’ll want to arrive early to get your silent auction bids in and visit with other NNEMAP Food Pantry friends and supporters.
WHERE?!? This year’s host is Stonybrook Church, located at 485 Cherry Bottom Rd., Gahanna, OH 43230.
HOW DO I GET THERE?!? Not to worry–use this map and directions.
For a mere $25 per ticket, you get a solid two hours of entertainment. Kids 10 and under admitted for the discounted ticket price of $15. We’re cheaper than a sitter and way more entertaining. Win-win! If you are a savvy holiday shopper, you recognize that this is the best deal in town!
