Thank You For Another Successful ARTvent!
Once again beginning December 1st, for a total of 12 consecutive days, the Arts Council drew for prizes to be given away to lucky daily winners! The support of our prize donors, Day Sponsors, and ticket purchasers enabled us to raise over $21,500 for the Arts Council's programs and services.
Exciting prize packages included limited edition artwork, a private shopping experience at Eleven 26, a beautiful Vahan 14kt yellow gold & sterling silver diamond bracelet, weekend getaways, season tickets to ULM baseball and football along with official gear, Clementine Hunter collectibles and much more!
Each prize package, valued at over $300, was curated by the Arts Council and our gracious donors.
COVID forced many organizations to re-invent their approach to funding their mission. With the annual Blend of the Bayou and North Delta Food & Wine Festival canceled in both 2020 and 2021, the Arts Council redirected its efforts to this COVID-safe way for EVERYONE to have a chance to support the arts AND win unique and exciting prizes just in time for the holidays.
Check out each prize package below to see who the lucky winners are!!
