The event centers around an auction featuring more than 300 album-sized 12″ x 12″ boards of locally-created art, live music from the legendary jazz trio The Erotic Adventures of The Static Chicken and live painting throughout the evening. Food will be available from local restaurants, as well as craft cocktails and exceptional music presented by your favorite WMSE’s Reggae Vibration’s DJ Robert G.
