Victoria Wyeth at fundraiser
The Center for the Creative Arts (410 Upper Snuff Mill Row, Yorklyn, Del.) presents its annual fundraiser, "Luck of the Draw," on Sept. 28. Guests will enjoy food, wine, live music and mingling. At the door, they draw a playing card for the chance to take home one work of art (donated by local artists) from nearly 100 on display. Wyeth will randomly select cards from a deck. The person holding the matching card then has one minute to choose any work of art on the walls. Many of the works are worth well more than the ticket price of $85. Each ticket holder may also bring a non-participating guest for $15. For more information, call 302-239-2434, visit www.ccarts.org. Reservations are required and space is limited.
