Art Dash: March 28, 2019

Ready, Set, Gogh!

Our third annual Art Dash will be Thursday, March 28, 2019, at The Cargill Room at The Waterfront Restaurant and Tavern, La Crosse. Cocktail hour starts at 5 p.m., and the dash for art starts promptly at 6 p.m. 

This important fundraiser for the Franciscan Spirituality Center celebrates beauty, creativity and community, as we bring together art patrons and local artists for a fun and fast-paced evening of food and fine art.

How it works: Everyone who buys a $100 ticket will go home with a piece of original art, but which piece is up for grabs. Each Dash ticket holder will be assigned a number. After a social hour and preview of the art, numbers will be drawn in random order. When their number is called, ticket holders will dash to the art item of their choice. If that item is still available, they may select it. If it already has been chosen, they’ll have to dash to another piece they like and so on until all of the artwork is claimed.

Where else can you get a piece of locally produced, quality art for a mere $100 donation?
Spouses and friends can buy a Spectator ticket for $60 and watch the fun. All ticket holders will enjoy delicious appetizers and desserts, and have a chance to mingle with the artists and other guests.

Tickets will go on sale after January 1, 2019. Whether you are looking to build your art collection, need a unique gift idea or just want to support the FSC, we’d love for you to join us.
