Hooray for the Holidays

November 17, 2011
It’s time to deck the halls … literally! Join me, 17 local artists, Young Variety members, Kansas City’s Vocalocity, Shawnee Mission East Lancer Dancers, Shawnee Mission East drum-line, Miss Ella, and of course, Santa in the first annual Hooray for Holidays at Mission Farms.
nancy mccarthy's "partridge in a pear tree"

Seventeen local artistis, including my mother, Nancy McCarthy, will donate their works to benefit Variety. This is "Partridge in a Pear Tree," 3 x 4 on canvas. Gorgeous!

Come have a drink with Young Variety of Greater Kansas City at blank burgers+bottles at 5 p.m. Blanc has been kind enough to offer $3 Boulevards and small plate appetizer specials to all Young Variety supporters. After a beverage and burger, Santa and myself will be presenting the adorable and fabulous Miss Ella with a brand new adaptive bike as a part of Variety Children’s Charity’s mission: to assist our children of Kansas City who have physical or mental disabilities and provide them with the most essential need — mobility. In addition, the generous and talented local artists will have their masterpieces unveiled in Mission Farms’ store windows, each of which will be auctioned off at a later date to raise funds for the Variety mission.  (My mother, Nancy McCarthy is one of those talented artists!) And at the end, Ella will help Santa and I flip the switch on the Mission Farms Christmas Tree to kick off this holiday season!
