Call for Artists and Crafters

On October 17, 2018 Family Outreach of Amherst (FOA), a human services agency in Amherst that works with struggling low-income families, will hold our annual fundraising event Warm Up The Night (WUTN). WUTN is a culinary extravaganza made up of restaurants, breweries, and local chefs who offer small plates and tastes of their finest offerings. The event is held in a large warm tent in the back of the Lord Jeffery Inn from 5:30 to 8:00.

This year FOA is recruiting artists and crafters to participate by displaying a carved and/or painted pumpkin or gourd at the event. This is an opportunity to let your imagination go wild! The art pieces will be displayed throughout the tent and (weather permitting) the grounds directly outside the tent.

The pieces should be able to be moved and dropped off at the tent between noon and 3:00 the day of the event. Artisans are encouraged to also display brochures and business cards as well.
