It’s that time of year … we are holding our Fourth Annual – PINTS AND PRINTS FOR THE PARK event on Sunday October 25th from 4:00p – 7:00p at the  Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA. Be sure to come out and enjoy a fun filled Sunday evening with neighbors and friends. There will be an open bar of beer and wine and finger food by Jack McShea’s.  We promise it will be a good time with great conversation. We have combined two of our fundraising events into one  - Art for the Park and Pints for the Park into Pints and Prints for the Park! All prints are original archival fine arts prints from regional and international artists. Most prints are 15 “ x 22” were made at the University of Pennsylvania Print Shop. The prints are unframed and priced from $35.00 to $125.00. The print sale is not a silent auction, so come in, have a drink, chat with friends and go home with art! BUT, there will also be a small silent auction and raffles which will include awesome items from local businesses! Cost is $35.00 per person – a bargain for all of this food and fun!  Finger food by Jack McShea’s. Dessert donation by the Tasting Room. You can pay online, by mail via check or at the door with cash, check or credit card (see “To Purchase Tickets” below). The Ardmore Music Hall is located at 23 East Lancaster Ave. in Ardmore, PA 19003. Thank you to the following local businesses for their donations of raffle items – please patronize businesses who support the Park –   Catt and Co.
