2014 Event – InsBREWation

ReStorative Arts InsBREWation Celebration
November 5, 2015

Over sixty community members attended the inaugural ReStorative Arts InsBREWation, an evening of dinner, drinks, art and an auction to benefit Chaffee County Habitat for Humanity and the Chaffee Arts Council on November 5th.

The Habitat ReStore donated items to members of the Arts Council who then refurbished those items into art pieces which were auctioned off in a silent auction during dinner.  See below for artists, the items they chose and pictures of some of the completed art pieces.

The Chaffee Arts Council raised $2,400 from the event, while Habitat brought in $1,000 from sales of tickets to the dinner.
