Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia's Fight to End Hunger Food Drive

Join us as we work to fight hunger during October 2014. In honor of World Food Day and to celebrate our newest gallery exhibit Origins, we’ve created a month long contest to encourage donations to the Helping Hands Community Resource Center, located in Beckley, WV. 

As if helping us make a difference wasn't enough, we decided to spice things up. Each item given to the drive enters the donor into a drawing*. One lucky and generous participant will win these fabulous Tamarack prizes, valued at over $150! 

1. A glass blowing session for two with our own resident glass artist John DesMeules! Not only will you and a friend get your very own glass keepsake (made by you!), you'll both get an experience you'll never forget 

2. Lunch or dinner for two on us! After all of that glass blowing, you will have worked up quite the appetite. Curb that hunger with some award winning Taste of West Virginia cuisine. Trout and burgers and pie (oh my!) 

3. A surprise goodie bag from one of our food vendors here at Tamarack. Everything included is guaranteed to be scrumptious! 

So what are you waiting for? Get your donations together and bring 'em on down to the TAMARACK: The Best of West Virginia Gallery Office between the hours of 8:30 and 5:00pm. Donations brought after 5:00pm can be left at the Front Desk. 

The winner will be announced during the first week of November. Prizes may be collected in person by the winner from the Gallery Office, 8:30 - 5:00pm, Monday - Friday. 

Questions? Call us at 304.256.6843 ext. 157 and ask for Molly Baker Halstead

*Some restrictions apply. Although Tamarack staff and their families are encouraged to donate to the cause, none will be allowed to enter the drawing.
