Thu, May 1st
7-10pm at MOCA
ABSOLUT and MOCA are partnering for a second year to bring “ABSOLUT ARTini” to Virginia Beach! Ten of the area’s finest restaurants showcase their creativity and distinct style in preparing their signature “ARTini”. A ten week campaign precedes the gala event, featuring a weekly happy hour at each restaurant to promote their ARTini in hopes of getting your vote. This year's theme is the roaring 20's and includes a red carpet entrance, ARTinis, open bar with throwback "bathtub gin" cocktails, fine fare, dancing, silent art auction, VIP area and MORE!
MOCA's spring fundraiser is produced by Generation MOCA, a committee of rising business, civic and social leaders who want to create a positive impact in the Hampton Roads community through the arts. All proceeds from ABSOLUT ARTini support MOCA's exhibition and education programs.
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE ARTINI BELOW!
$50 General Admission (includes martinis, food, and an evening of fabulous live entertainment)
