‘Land of Sweets’ to benefit local children

THOMASVILLE — Thomasville Center for the Arts has opened its doors for its premiere holiday event at TCA on Broad, the Center’s newest location at 116 South Broad St. A delectable decorative display and art gift sale called “The Land of Sweets” will benefit local children through a partnership with Project Backyard.

The primary aim of the event will be through the sale of art gifts, and a “Buy One, Give One” initiative. For every art gift purchased, the Center for the Arts will donate the same gift to Project Backyard, who will then distribute the gifts to local children.

“We’re proud to be partnering with Project Backyard this year to bring the gift of art to local children,” said TCA Youth Education Manager Hananel Mavity. “Having the means to creativity and self-expression through art can make such a difference in a child’s life, and we are delighted that we can help give that to them this year.”

Parents are encouraged to bring their children to TCA on Broad, where Center for the Arts staff members have decked the walls to resemble a whimsical winter wonderland. There will be a candy shop filled with colorful sweets for sale, and a photo-op setup where parents may photograph their children on a sleigh of sweets.

Through Christmas, “The Land of Sweets” will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
