LEAF presents the 4th annual Benefit of Culture event, this year with an evening full o' pirate themed music, food, drinks, and more. It all happens tonight at the Highland Brewing Company Tasting Room with proceeds going to benefit six youth arts education programs from around the world.
Guests encouraged to don their "swashbuckling best" while enjoying live music by Sirius B and surprise artists The Swashbuckling Sea-stars.
There will also be performances by the LEAF Schools & Streets Circus, Easel Rider “Pirate Arts,” roving artists, and opportunities to win fabulous booty in the silent auction.
In addition to tonight's festivities, for the past couple of weeks supporters of LEAF were able to sample pirate themed cocktails from ten area restaurants who graciously agreed to a little friendly competition donating $2.50 from each signature drink to the organization. Cheers to all the participating establishments and talented bartenders, and congrats to Donnie Pratt of Cucina24 for his winning concoction, The Queen Anne's Revenge, pictured here.
