Named Best Art Event 2010 by the New Times Broward/Palm Beach

Now in its fourth year, this exhibition and fund-raiser is comprised of over 100 donated works in all media by artists who have been invited to participate. Abracadabra culminates with a live raffle of these outstanding art works in the main gallery. All works are exhibited prior to the evening of the raffle, affording ticket buyers an opportunity to preview the art before the main event!

To purchase a raffle ticket, call 954. 921. 3274.

$375 – One raffle ticket and admission for two to event

$700 – Two raffle tickets and admission for four to event

$1000 – Three raffle tickets and admission for six to event

$30 – Buys general admission for one person to the event (this does not include raffle participation).

Each raffle ticket purchased will guarantee the bearer to go home with a work of art valued at greater than the ticket price. Raffle tickets and admission are available in advance, via PayPal above, by downloading an RSVP form (PDF), and at the door if still remaining.

At 8 pm, all ticket holders’ names will be randomly drawn, one by one. When your name is called, you choose any work of art that has not yet been selected. If you are picked first, you have first choice of all the artwork, the second name picked gets second choice, and so on – everyone is a winner! Participating artists are by invitation, selected by the Center’s curator and the Event Committee. Proxy bidding will be available for the raffle ticket holders unable to attend. Complimentary full bar and hors d’oeuvres.
