One thing is certain: Art of the Deal isn't your typical fundraiser. It's a hybrid party with black jack tables, a DJ, edgy entertainment, great food and a lively dance floor.
The annual semi-formal event, the area's premiere social and cultural party, is Saturday, November 5 in downtown Mount Dora.
Art of the Deal takes place at the Donnelly Park building and a large adjacent party tent. Once inside, celebrants will find a live body art performance, a comedian, craps and blackjack tables, plus catering by Pisces Rising, an open bar, live art performances, red carpet photos and a very lively dance floor.
This year's theme for the annual Mount Dora Center for the Arts fundraiser is "Creativity Leads to Invention."
In addition to the entertainment and gaming tables, the event also features both a live auction and an extensive silent auction that ranges from original works of art to gift certificates, weekend getaways and other generously donated items.
Proceeds benefit the Mount Dora Center for the Arts to provide scholarships for childrens summer arts camp and to support youth outreach programs, educational classes and exhibits to the community.
Art of the Deal will be from 6 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $85 and can be purchased at www.mountdoracenterforthearts.org
