Blowin’ Red #5 will take place on February 6, 2015 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm! If you have ever come to one of our fundraisers, you know it just the thing to chase off of those winter blues for a few hours on a cold winter evening. If you haven’t ever come, well, you need to; there is nothing else quite like it! It’s a unique and fun event for a very worthy cause with 100% of the money raised to be donated to the American Heart Association’s “Go Red For Women” campaign. The support of our generous donors and friends who attend have made it possible for us to contribute nearly $20,000 since 2011! Let’s do it again. There will be a live, hot-on-the-pipe auction and silent auction for your bidding pleasure. Snake Oil Glassworks, Inc. supplies the place, food, and entertainment. Our donors supply the many goodies available in the silent auction. Want to be a part of the action by donating an item to the silent auction? Contact us here at: studio@snakeoilglassworks.com. There will be a suggested donation of $10 for the night of the event. Lorraine is already on the prowl for her outfit and shoes… It all happens on February 6, 2015!
