On a hot July evening, Youth in Arts board member, Kylee Ortiz hosted her first Sip + Shop event at Neve & Hawk in San Anselmo…and it was a BIG hit! More than 50 guests turned out to sip wine, eat delicious food from Lucky Penny Bread, listen to great live music performed by Sharon Lang & Cheyenne Young, and of course shop the wonderful wares at Neve & Hawk. Store owners, Kris and Bob Galmarini kindly donated their space and sales associate’s time for the event, plus gave 15% of all sales to Youth in Arts. We are very grateful for their support!
The first 20 attendees received beautiful tiny succulent-filled pots created by Kylee and Cactus Jungle, as a thank you for giving a suggested donation at the door. The event also featured a raffle with a prize of a $100 gift certificate to Good Earth Natural Foods, as well as a silent auction with lovely items gifted by: San Anselmo Inn, Eden Day Spa, Blanc, Dollface, Chase Ace, Utility Room, Heart Tribe, Mill Road Studio, original artwork by Kylee Ortiz and Jennifer Shada, and SHN Tickets from Wayne & Debbi Yamagishi.
Well over $2,000 was raised to help support Youth in Arts programs. Thank you Kylee for putting on such a fantastic event, and helping to tell Youth in Arts’ story in your unique way. We appreciate your creativity, passion for arts education, and commitment to YIA!
