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.

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.
