Come celebrate the tradition of “Romancing the Vine: The Savory Chemistry of Art and Science,” on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 6-9 p.m. This adult-only fundraiser supports a grant from the Colorado Council for the Arts integrating the arts into our science curriculum. An example is the SAM-e animations our kids enjoy.
This year, we again have the privilege to be at Carmen Wiedenhoeft Gallery in the RiNo district. In exhibition will be “Identity,” by Derek Cracco. Also available will be a plethora of affordable artistic jewelry for sale, with proceeds going to the school, and Carmen’s artists have generously agreed to donate 20 percent of the profits from art sold during the month of February.
As always, highly appointed wine from Mayfair Liquors will be served. The wines you love will be available for purchase through Mayfair, which will give 20 percent of the sales to Polaris. This year we have upped the ante and invited eight distributors to the event! There will be over 30 wines to sample, so stock up on favorites by ordering during and after the event. Extra order forms will be available after the event at the front office.
But wait, there’s more! If you plan to attend, you will enjoy sushi catered by our own Jane Hartgrove in addition to other tasty treats from our parents. What’s that? You plan to come but are wondering how to do more? Check out our volunteer link at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/508084CA9A828A31-romancing.
If you happen to be out of town, we recommend sponsoring a teacher’s ticket, priced at $25. If we have two families from each class donate, we would give the staff a night out for all their hard work!
Space is limited, so don’t delay! Buy your tickets at the main office or on the website.
You may sign up online for Romancing the Vine babysitting services from 5-10 p.m. The cost is $15 for one, $17 for two, and $20 for three children per family.
Also, please sign up if you’re available to host in Whittier or Stapleton. (Note that Stapleton has childcare from 6-9 p.m. at the Central Park Recreation Center on Feb. 9.)
