July ’14


In April, the Hart Mansion Restaurant hosted a fundraiser for the arts in Minerva called “Chair-ity.”  The newest 20/20 Vision Minerva public art project Big Chair (by artists Marty Chapman and Sally Lytle) was unveiled that night.  It celebrates that some very “big” people have been associated with Minerva, and specifically President McKinley who had a summer home there.  That night 100 guests wined and dined and bid on much-smaller artistic chair creations made by local artists. 

Springtacular Style Show & Luncheon

The second annual Springtacular Style Show & Luncheon was sponsored by Canton Fine Arts Associates. All of the proceeds went to benefit the Canton Museum of Art. Fashions were provided by Christopher & Banks and It’s a Dusey Boutique. Held in the Wilkof Courtyard of the Canton Museum of Art, the event also included live music, a 50/50 drawing, a door prize raffle, plus spring beauty trends demonstrations by Estée Lauder and Scott Talbot Salonspa.

Celebrity Cuisine

The 22nd annual Celebrity Cuisine was held at the Canton Memorial Civic Center in April. Celebrity Cuisine has become known as the premier happy hour of the season because of the extraordinary all-inclusive ticket price. For $30, attendees enjoyed unlimited access to appetizers, entree samples, beer, wine and desserts while listening to live music and bidding on a silent auction. The event benefited Community Harvest.
