Tasty event will raise funds for the Workhouse Arts Center

June 27, 2013 by  

The Workhouse Arts Center is having its annual Ice Cream Social fundraiser this July. The event is expected to attract at least 1,200 visitors and organizers hope to raise $10,000 for the Center and its programs.

Those taking part in the event will purchase a handmade bowl, which was made by students of the Workhouse Arts Center. The bowl will then be filled with as much ice cream and toppings as the owner wishes. In addition to the ice cream treats, there will be musical entertainment from the Backyard Blues Band, pony rides at Tamarack Stables, demonstrations by local artists, and visits to Cross Pointe local Fire Station #41.

Local businesses that have sponsored the event will have information booths set up and will be providing information on their products and services, perhaps handing out promotional freebies. Raffle tickets are also available, for which the prize is a ceramic sculpture by John Donovan, all of which should add up to a fun event for those of all ages.

It is very likely that those businesses that are sponsoring the event will come from all over the area, including nearby Vienna. They will also probably be working with local printing companies to provide informative literature for those who stop by their booth, which might include brochures, flyers, and even artistic postcards.

The 5th annual Ice Cream Social will take place at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton on July 13 from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Ice cream bowls cost $15. For more information, call 703-584-2900.
