What is ARTini?
In simple terms, it’s a fundraiser. But honestly, it’s a lot more. It’s a celebration of the art of spirits featuring live music, raffles, and much more. Area restaurants create unique martinis and compete for the coveted title of “Judges Choice”, “People’s Choice”, and “Most Savory”.
How much is raised by ARTini and where does the money go?
Last year ARTini raised close to $40,000 this year it is our hope to increase that amount to $50,000. The funds go to support the general operations of the Arts Council and all their programming but specifically towards providing events for the general public.
Why do you call it ARTini?
ARTini celebrates various forms of creative expression and encompasses the culinary, musical, and visual arts. (Martini glasses which have been hand painted by local artists are also available for purchase during the event.)
