The arts are alive and well in Ocean City.

On behalf of the Art League of Ocean City, thank you to everyone who made this year’s “pARTy of the Year: Let’s Paint the Town,” a wonderful success.

It was a fun-filled evening at the beautiful waterfront Aloft Hotel that raised funds to help support the many community programs of the Art League.

Nearly 200 pARTy guests enjoyed an amazing charcuterie buffet and hors d’oeuvres by Taste Events, fabulous sushi by Nori Sushi, sweet treats from Candy Kitchen Shoppes, and mouth-watering desserts from Phil Cropper. A big thank you to our other in kind sponsors: The Aloft Hotel, Bluewater Development, Virginia Pappas, Seacrets, Sysco, Coastal Tents, Pepsi, and the Taustin Family.

Our pARTy committee did an outstanding job of coordinating the event and decorating the bayfront ballroom at the Aloft with a “paint the town” theme.

Our committee members include: Jamie Albright, Kari Berger, Patty Falck, Rebecca Galyon, Sandy Gillis, Georgette Greason, Marsha Howarth, Jennifer Klepper, Cindy Leiner, Virginia Pappas, Jan Perdue, Loretta Spinuzza, Eileen Stamnas, Cheryl Taustin, Gayle Widdowson, and Nadine Wieder.

Our thanks also goes out to our monetary event sponsors: Jeff and Jamie Albright, Bank of Ocean City, Sidney and Sherrie Beckstead Family, Kari and Dr. Leonard Berger, Jack Burbage, Casual Designs, Delaware Elevator, Dr. Kathy Dillon and Dan Mason, Fager’s Island, Gillis Gilkerson, The Gudelsky Group, Harrison Group, Buddy and Laura Jenkins, Jennifer and Dr. Lee Klepper, Cynthia and Bruce Leiner, Maller Wealth Advisors, Mercedes of Salisbury, Kimmerly Messick, Jim and Jan Perdue, Seacrets, Eileen and Dr. Greg Stamnas, Cheryl and Jay Taustin, Jeff Thaler, Gayle and Dirk Widdowson, and Nadine Wieder.

Our raffle for a trip for two to Florence, Italy was won by Sylvia Moritz of Ocean View. Thank you to all of the 300 people who purchased a raffle ticket.
