On April 14, 2012 the CFA hosted its 5th annual P2P fundraiser. This event, which celebrates the arts in the historic Southside District, was once again a huge success. The best of Chattanooga's visual, ﬂoral and culinary arts came to create one of the city's most unique fundraisers.
Guests strolled among eight Southside galleries savoring art and enjoying the wine and local cuisine at each venue. The Living Arts Gallery delighted and surprised our patrons as they saw Tracy Lee Stum bring her art to life in 3D form. Thanks to Jayne Brzezienski, the gallery took a different twist this year combining music and art. Taking the stage at Loose Cannon Studios was Bartlee Norton & 64 Highway. Jayne used her talents as she worked with Events with Taste and Divine Designs by Amanda to create a southwest atmosphere that delighted everyone's taste for food, wine and art.
Thanks to the support of Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, the Youth Gallery has become an enormous success. The gallery featured the work from 16 area high schools. The Medieval theme was enhanced by the festive cuisine provided by 'On the List Catering' Friday night and 'Impressions Catering' Saturday night. Exquisite ﬂoral arrangements were created by 'Divine Designs by Amanda', and decorations were donated compliments of 'REVIVAL'.
Following the gallery stroll, our guests traveled to Track29 for the "Bubbles & Sweets" after-party sponsored by Volkswagen. Everyone was treated to delectable desserts compliments of Broad Street Grille, and champagne, courtesy of Athens Distributing as they danced to the smooth rhythms of the Willie Kitchens Band. The CFA would like to thank Ms. Danielle Alveraz, Mrs. Jennifer Young and Mr. Jimmy Adams, for their incredible talents to create such a memorable night for our guests. On behalf of the CFA families and the CFA Board of Directors, thank you to everyone who participated in making this annual fundraiser a success, yet again.
