First Annual Holidays in the Hill

A few months back, I had this great idea to have an art show at my house to feature local artists. I have a very talented friend who can paint anything, and I wanted an avenue for her and others who don't have a website or storefront to feature their work. We all like to support local, and I thought our town needed something like this so the community could support one another. I tossed my idea around with others, and the interest grew. My friend Andrea and sister Marina came on board to help me plan and decided this was a bigger concept than my house. Hence Holidays in the Hill was born. 

Our event was held Sunday, November 3rd at the Tollgate Clubhouse and was a huge success!!! I am absolutely thrilled with the turnout with an upwards of 500 people in attendance! To top that, we asked people to bring canned goods in lieu of an admission fee to donate to the Well local food pantry. We had over 500 pounds of food to donate!! 

I had no idea my little idea would turn into something so great. Thanks to my partner and friend Andrea for helping bring this baby to life. We are so lucky to live in a town where people truly love and support one another. Happy, Happy! :)
