Art Party Raises Over $7K

The 7th annual Art Party took over the Village Shops in Lincoln on December 30 and at the end, over $7,000 was raised to support the skate park.

Yes, $7,000 was raised at the 7th annual event.

Home base for the event was Rhythm Craft Cider Studio and which served up locally-made spirits to partygoers. Rhythm, artists in their own right, also stepped in and donated all cider proceeds from the night back to one lucky Art Party artist.

Over 20 artists contributed to the event! Many are long-time Art Party veterans from the Lincoln & Woodstock area including Kyle Weeden, Jessica Niemiste, Gus Noffke, Elyse Robertie, Chris Roma, Colleen Longo, April Surrette, Melody Gaudette, Emmy Asklar and more. Several out-of-state creatives from Maine and Massachusetts also donated.

The Village Shops were buzzing throughout the night thanks to music from DJ That Ninjah. Live A Little Fitness kept kids happy with a free play zone inside their studio. While Burgeon Outdoor and Three On The Tree shops kept their doors opens for guests to pick up any post-Christmas gifts. And of course, spirits were flowing at Rhythm Craft Cider Studio.

Thank you to Liquid Death Mountain Water as well as Etnies, Altamont and Emerica for the heaping amount of giveaways for the artists. Everyone in attendance was properly stoked and hydrated.

This year’s Art Party was the most successful party to date! It would not be possible without the creativity and generosity of the artists. We also want to thank all who attended and donated. This was a huge night and a big step towards reaching our fundraising goal.
