Holiday XS, Arts After Hours’ annual holiday gala, will bring together an anticipated 300 North Shore residents and guests for a night of dancing and live music along with a silent auction that includes a wide range of gifts from local restaurants and vendors as well as luxury seats to Boston Celtics and Boston Red Sox games. Proceeds from the evening will help to raise needed funds to begin Season 5 which will be announced at this event. “This event is the highlight of the year for Arts After Hours,” says AAH Board Member Dave Solimine Jr. “People come to this event and leave amazed at the talent here in Downtown Lynn and so happy they came to have such a great time.”
Funds raised from Holiday XS will help support Arts After Hours’ overall mission of stimulating Lynn’s economy by driving people to downtown Lynn for various arts and entertainment events all year long. To help accomplish this goal, AAH relies on the support of local restaurants and businesses. “This is a great way for AAH and the business community to collaborate and bring awareness to all that is going on in the Downtown area and beyond,” says Corey Jackson, Managing Director of Arts After Hours. “As we enter our 5th season, we celebrate over 65 corporate sponsors and overwhelming community support.” Guests are encouraged to buy tickets online at www.artsafterhours.com or call (781) 205-4010.
