Fireball Apple, Mexican Chocolate, Ginger Peach, OH MY!
There’s no place like Practical Art—especially tomorrow night, when you can come support our favorite monthly tradition, Charity Pie Night. Sample delicious desserts, peruse one-of-a-kind artwork, and give back to this month’s local non-profit, The Area Agency on Aging. Our favorite pie-maker, Karen Olson (of Vonceil’s Pies), is pulling out her apron and whipping up a few of her famous delectables—all to support the work of this vital agency!
It’s an unfortunate truth that senior citizens and individuals struggling with disabilities are often forced to leave their homes and enter assisted living facilities. The inability to drive, the strain of keeping up a home, or the lack of companionship can become obstacles that prevent successful independent living. The Area Agency on Aging strives to combat these obstacles and allow individuals who want to stay in their homes the ability to do so. Through Meals on Wheels, in-home nursing, housekeeping services, and other important programs, the Area Agency on Aging gives senior citizens, and those struggling to overcome disabilities, the tools to remain in their own homes.
The donations from tomorrow night’s Charity Pie Night will go towards the Area Agency ‘s annual campaign, ‘Lift the Wait.’ This campaign raises money to help get clients off of the wait list and started on services, like Meals on Wheels. Government budget cuts starting in 2012, greatly impacted the amount of services and clients that the Area Agency was able to serve. This campaign helps bridge the gap and expands the goods and services provided. Every dollar raised has a huge impact for an individual in need!
Friday night is your opportunity to give back—and eat pie! Donate $5 and enjoy a single slice of the pie of your choice, donate $10 and receive an unlimited sampling of the different flavors available! We will also donate 10% of sales that day. Your purchase will support not only the Area Agency on aging, but also our 130 local artist. Take home your very own piece of ‘Practical Art’!
We can’t wait to see you there!
*Gluten free and Vegan pie options are plentiful!
