The McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) invites the public to purchase tickets for an artistic raffle that will take place during its MPAartfest celebration night on Friday, September 10.
This artistic and fun evening gives guests a unique insight into MPAartfest, showcasing artists and their works, organizers said.
Co-chaired by JJ Singh and Lizzy Conroy, the 2021 MPA Celebration Night will take place at the home of Drs. Victoria and Lonnie Davis. The French gypsy jazz group The Bitter Dose Combo will perform for the guests of the Evening. The artistic group’s tequila sponsor, 21 Seeds Tequila, will also be on hand to offer exclusive cocktails.
The event’s “Luck of the Draw” artistic raffle is a lasting design that offers novice and seasoned art collectors access to over 25 works of art donated by top emerging and established talent that will be exhibiting at MPAartfest.
Each ticket purchased represents a chance to win a work of art (minimum value of $ 150). All proceeds will go to MPAartfest, the annual MPA festival, which will be held this year on October 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at McLean Central Park.
To participate in the raffle, purchase tickets to the MPA Night or visit the group’s website at mpaart.org and click on “Celebration Party” under “Events” in the drop-down options bar.
During the draw, all tickets will be drawn. The winners receive a work of art. Individuals do not need to attend the evening to participate.
