What: Spring Fling Fundraiser
When: March 20th, 6-9pm
Where: The Brunswick Inn, 165 Park Row, Brunswick
Its not too soon to think about Spring, and during a winter like we are having, it’s in fact a great thing to think about. Spindleworks will be celebrating with a Spring Fling Fundraiser! Gracious hosts Eileen and Jim Hornor invite you for an evening of music, food, drink and celebration in support of Spindleworks on March 20th, the spring equinox. The Inn will be transformed into a walk through the ages of the well known art center’s history, with artwork, photos and ephemera spanning back to the mid seventies when the doors first opened. “The Leopard Girls” featuring Hal Ahlers, Ben Hunsberger, Gary Lawless, Chris Simpson and Scott Woodruff, will provide the soundtrack to this time warp evening. The ticket price will also include appetizers provided by the Inn, one free drink (from the cash bar), door prizes, and more. We will have surprises in store as well, so this will be a not-to-miss evening! Tickets will be limited to the first 100 people.
Tickets are$45 per person, or $100 ticket includes a piece of original art; $80 per couple, or $135 ticket includes a piece of original art.
Tickets are available by contacting Liz McGhee at 725-8820, or purchase on line Here
The fundraiser comes at a crucial time for Spindleworks as the state considers is a system redesign which, through a reallocation of funds would reduce revenue to the program. “The Brunswick community has supported Spindleworks over the years in so many ways from material donations and volunteering, to collaborations and advocacy ”, said Liz McGhee, the program’s manager, “but we have come to a time when we have to ask even more help to enable us to meet the financial challenges ahead.” If the Legislature passes the proposed changes to the funding structure, Spindleworks stands to see an almost 40% loss in revenue in the first 18 months. The Spring Fling is just one part of a larger effort to prepare for a very different landscape in the coming fiscal year.
