reen with Envy
Don something Jade! This year’s theme “Jade, Jeans and Gems” is in-line with a traditional 35th anniversary reflecting Jade stones. Consider a lively accent (cuff links, bolo, earrings, hair pin or belt buckle) that feature this pale green hue.
From jeans to denim accents,
this is a cocktail attire event
that you can liven up with your own “Jeans” twist.
Park It (or Valet)
The entrance to The Reserve is on the WEST side of the parking lot. As you enter the Zoo parking lot, take the first right after going past the gate houses and follow the signage to our complimentary Valet. You will not enter through the main ticket entrance.
This event has a lot of fun packed into a clean package. With art auctions, big board auctions and more, plan to arrive 15 minutes before Cocktail Hour (6 p.m.) to get checked in and enjoy the fun!
Be sure to check out the stellar art on display and the unique Big Board auction items.
There is also the opportunity to get up-close with zoo residents. A variety of surprise “party animals” will drop by before dinner.
Tickets, tickets, who has the tickets?!
An Artists’ Christmas does not use tickets! All attendee names are held at check in. So, you can cross that off your pre-event check list.
Embrace technology for this event. Be sure to provide Camp Fire and/or your table host with your email and mobile phone number. This allows you to be set up in the online auction software ahead of time, input your bidding payment preferences, and receive check-in information and other need-to-know messages before the event. Just head to “Express Check In” when you arrive to pick up your bidder paddle and art catalog.
Am I Winning?
The silent auction is completely digital and browser-based. Auction leader boards are placed around the room. So even if you don’t have your phone handy, you can monitor your “high bidder” status.
Not only are the artists mingling around the room but they may be seated at your table. Take advantage of their knowledge and familiarity with the event. If you see a crowd gathered around a piece of artwork, stop and join in. It very well could be the artist hosting an impromptu conversation about their process, inspiration or background.
Not able to attend? Anyone can participate from home or on-the-road with
