Spring Fever Raffle

March 1st we will start our Spring Fever Raffle. The profits from this raffle will go to our Culver-Jones Scholarship. The Jones Memorial Scholarship for the Visual Arts was established in 1994 in memory of Dr. Culver Jones and his wife, Beatrice. Dr. Jones was a gifted artist himself, and he and his wife were dedicated and devoted to furthering the interest of the visual arts in Bay County. Their support of Studio 23/The Arts Center throughout the years has contributed greatly to the growth and continued interest in the visual arts in our community. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize, encourage, and assist students who wish to pursue a career in the visual arts.

 

Every Friday in March we will be giving out one prize a week! Didn’t win? Your ticket will stay in the drawing for the additional weeks in March for more chances to win!
