Lowell, MA — The Brush Art Gallery and Studios, in partnership with the Cultural Affairs Office of Lowell, is offering you a chance to win a wreath from a display of about 40 wreaths while supporting a fun and worthwhile event that champions The Brush’s programming: the Festival of Wreaths Holiday Event during the Lowell’s City of Lights Parade.
The wreaths will be displayed (along with your participant information) at Edson Hall behind St. Anne’s Church on Merrimack Street from 2:00 to 6:00 PM. Each wreath will then be given to the lucky winners whose raffle tickets are drawn at approximately 5:00 PM.
“Community Teamwork is honored that the Brush Art Gallery and Studios will be hosting the Festival of Wreaths in memory of our dear friend Kathy Muldoon. Kathy started the event while working at Community Teamwork to benefit programs that provide services to homeless families. It was Kathy’s request to pass the event on to the Brush, where we all thought it would grow and thrive with the connection with Arts. Human Services and the Arts were both close to Kathy’s heart and it wonderful to see the Festival of Wreaths continue to benefit a great organization!”
–Karen N. Frederick, Chief Executive Officer, Community Teamwork
