Ponca City Art Center announces “Art of Cards” party

Ponca City Now - February 8, 2016 9:08 am

The Ponca City Art Association will sponsor a dessert/card party from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Feb. 17.

All funds raised will benefit the Art Center’s art scholarship fund.

The Ponca City Art Center held its first dessert/card party in 2006 as an annual event. However the parties became so popular that they now are held every February and October.

Tickets for the Feb. 17 event are $10 per person, with four people to each table. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the Art Center, 819 East Central, from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Tables for parties of four will be available for bridge, mahjong or other similar games. Cheesecake, coffee and tea will be provided as well. Groups should bring their own games.

People not already grouped in foursomes will be seated together and select the games of their choice.

Door prizes will be given out to those in attendance. Players can also elect to participate in the current raffle promotion going on now through Feb. 14th. The Art Center is raffling off one of two paintings (winner’s choice). Both are paintings done by local artist Routh Loucks. A $5 donation will get one chance, and a $20 donation will get 5 chances. The drawing will be held Feb. 17; winners need not be present to win.

The Ponca City Art Center is located in the Historic Soldani Mansion, on the National Register of Historic Places. It is at 819 East Central.

The Art Center is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and select Saturdays. For more information, please call 580-765-9746.
