Local artist, educator and owner of the Scotts Valley art studio, Drawn2Art, Rachael Cartwright was the guest for Artists on Art, May 10, 2011.
Rachael came on to the show to talk about and promote two events happening this May 14 and May 15 weekend, in Scotts Valley, to benefit the Bryan Stow Fund. All the money raised will be donated to this Fund for Bryan’s care who had been brutally beaten at a Dodgers/Giants Opening game in San Diego, March 31, 2011. Bryan has yet to regain consciousness. His family lives locally.
On Saturday, May 14 from 1:00-4:00 p.m., the Kings Village Shopping Center will be transformed into a kid inspired playland. There will be live performances, an obstacle course, a bouncy house, face painting, an Art Show and more for kids of all ages. American Medical Response (AMR) will be there with an ambulance and invites families to stop by and take an-up close look. Various vendors will set up booths with merchandise, jewelry, food, “For Stow” t-shirts and more. At 3PM a hosted live auction & raffle will take place with prizes from many local businesses and organizations.
On Sunday, May 15 the Scotts Valley Grand Prix Returns is being held at Canepa Design, located at 4900 Scotts Valley Drive, from 1:00-9:00 p.m. Mark Davis, CEO of Syzygy Sports Group has put together a whole day of fun for the family. There will be bike races and Drawn2Art activities for the kids, a raffle, vendors, a food court, race announcers, DJ’s, a podium presentation stage and a children’s play area that will include a bouncy house, climbing wall and more.
