Bohemian Bash Photo Album

The Make Art, Not Waste Bohemian Bash, held on July 17, 2014, was an absolutely fantastic evening!  While there is much more to say about C3’s inaugural auction event and reuse art show, we couldn’t resist sharing a few images.  For now, we will let the pictures do the talking.  Cypress Manor proved to be a perfect and very photogenic venue.


BB-1 reuse decorations

We incorporated C3’s mission to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle into every aspect of the Bash, from decorations crafted from materials on hand at C3 to compostable cold cups for beverages.

We were beyond pleased that the Bash was such a smash!  It’s a wonderful thing when a plan comes together, and even better that we successfully raised monies for C3’s upcoming relocation.  It was genuinely overwhelming!


BB-4 silent auction

The silent auction was a hit!  We assembled a unique variety of offerings, from original arts and crafts to dining and entertainment to services for self and home.

The reuse art show was a highlight!  Our guest judges were very impressed with the quality of the works submitted.  The competition was stiff.

BB-10 activities

Jim Lockhart, Sr. designed the boards and Holly Burch added the flower power

We wanted to put some “fun” into “fun”draising, so we had awesome activities planned for Bash attendees.  Guests enjoyed the Spa Room, temporary tattoos, and the flower power photo op.

Planning an event like the Make Art, Not Waste Bohemian Bash is no small undertaking.  We want to thank everyone who made the Bash such an unforgettable evening — our generous sponsors, those businesses and individuals who contributed items for the auction, the art show judges and reuse artists, our amazing committee, our energetic event volunteers, and most importantly everyone who came out and enjoyed a most fun and groovy evening that lived up to its hype.  Your support will open the door to a new home for C3!
