The Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce celebrated the arts at its December luncheon and holiday party with an art and gift sale and performances by student musicians and thespians on Dec. 7 at the Community and Event Center.
More than 15 artists from the Mercer Island Visual Arts League (MIVAL) sold goods for holiday gift giving, and jazz band and drama group members from Mercer Island High School performed classic holiday tunes and carols.
The MIHS Social Enterprise Group sold holiday ornaments through their company, Mercer Trade Inc., and will donate all proceeds to Mercer Island Youth and Family Services (YFS). YFS Director Cindy Goodwin also received a check for $1,000 of donations from the chamber’s Art Uncorked event, held in September.
Joseph Barker & Sons catered a special holiday menu, and Costco brought dessert for all.
