The Gallery School of Pottstown and the Pottstown Regional Public Library are holding a joint fundraiser on Saturday, August 13 from 6-9 pm at the Ballroom on High. The Books and Brushes, Beef and Beer event will feature local food and businesses and benefit the programs and ongoing operations of the community art school and the library.
The theme for this event is “local.” Popular Pottstown restaurant Grumpy’s will be catering. The Ballroom, at 310 E. High St. next to The Farmers’ Market, is also the home to SwingKat Entertainment. Pottstown’s own radio station WPAZ will be creating the soundtrack for the event, so bring your dancing shoes!
Tickets are only $20 and include hot roast beef sandwiches, pasta and veggie salads, beer and soft drinks, and homemade desserts. There will also be vegetarian wrap sandwiches available. Guests can purchase their tickets online at www.galleryonhigh.org, or in person at the School at 254 E. High St. or the Library at 500 E. High St.
