Congratulations to the knitting team at Crazy For Ewe! Their decorated bra gathered the most votes during the Pink Friday fundraiser. Local artists had created one-of-a-kind pieces for the Uplifting Designs contest, sponsored by the St. Mary’s County Arts Council to benefit MedStar St. Mary’s Breast Cancer Outreach Program. Generous donations were made by “votes” casted in pink buckets for favorite entries, many participating businesses also dedicated a portion of their evening sales to help the hospital provide valuable supportive services in our community.

Other highlights of the evening included the unveiling of the very first Public Art Project in the heart of the Arts & Entertainment District. Parran Colllery’s beautiful tiled piece “The Naturalist’s Bench” may be seen (and sat on!) right in front of the Town Hall. Featured for the finale of the outdoor concert series for 2017 were Hook, Line & Sinker, performing a wide variety of rock & roll tunes and more.

Galleries, art studios, shops, and restaurants were open late for a night of family and pet-friendly fun with the evening completed by the audience participation Drum Circle from 8-9 PM.

The Leonardtown Business Association (LBA) would like to thank everyone who attended and also gratefully acknowledges the generous support of our Platinum Sponsors (Marrick Homes, Quality Built Homes, and the Winegardner Motor Company). Come join us November 3rd from 5 to 8 PM for “A Grateful Harvest/ Share the Bounty” which will include a fundraiser for the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen.

Make Leonardtown your special place to be every First Friday!
