Celebrate the Arts to Help PCB Locals

by October 9, 2012 • 4 comments

 

2nd Annual  “Celebrate the Arts” Local Artists Market to benefit Beach Care Services will take place this year on Saturday, November 3rd from 10 am to 4 pm.

The event co-hosted by  Beachy Beach Real Estate and  Cerulean Interiors unites local artists and craftsmen to share their gifts and “celebrate” art, including its’ power to improve the lives of others.  The event will be located in front of the aforementioned businesses at 22600 Panama City Beach Parkway on the West End of Panama City Beach, just a little bit east of Publix at Carillon.

Co-host, Roy Calvin Eure, Jr , owner of Cerulean Interiors , an artist in his own right, says  “ as a member of the local business community, I think it is important we encourage the creation of art and it’s power as a vehicle for social change.  “

When asked why she was involved with Celebrate the Arts, Karen Smith, Broker of Beachy Beach Real Estate said , “we just try help people with the gifts we are given…when you are blessed, you are called to bless others.  Beach Care Services helps people directly, Roy and I want to be a part of that.”

Celebrate the Arts (CTA) will feature artists and craftsmen from a variety of disciplines, from jewelry to woodworking to photography.  CTA will also feature live music,  door prizes and special giveaways and activities for kids, including a booth just for them hosted by the Beachy Beach Kids Club.

This family friendly event is FREE to attend, but participants are encouraged to bring their pocket books, as all the artists are donating a portion of their profits to Beach Care Services and this year the first ever CTA event T-shirt will be available for sale with all profits going to Aaron Nichols, a local resident and Bay High graduate whose near fatal car accident five years ago left him and his family in dire need of financial help.

This year at the event, there will be an additional booth selling the CTA logo shirt and Beachy Beach merchandise, with all profits going to the Aaron Nichols fund to help him purchase much needed medical equipment to help him learn how to walk again.  Many residents may know Aaron’s father, Gary Nichols who teaches music at Breakfast Point Academy.  To learn more about getting  Aaron back on his feet, visit http://www.giveforward.com/aaronnichols

In addition, if you cannot come to the event but you would like to help in some way, whether it be an item donation, volunteer or whatever your heart moves you please reach out to the Panama City Beach location of the Beachy Beach Real Estate office at 850 233 4351 or email Tammy@beachybeachy.com or Britt@beachybeach.com.   To find out more about  the event  please visit the facebook page, www.facebook.com/celebratetheartspcb.   Beach Care Services, who epitomizes their slogan of “Locals helping Locals”  are  also on Facebook if you would like to learn more about them.  Thanks to the generous support of businesses like Pineapple Willy’s and successful fundraisers like last month’s Duck Races, Beach Care Services has been able to help a large number of local families in need in our area.
