Party!  Party!  Party!
Saturday, Sept. 12  5-10 pm
Our favorite Party at the Pagoda is almost here!  It's a friend-raising event to thank all the artists and supporters who have pitched in to make TAO the organization it is today.  At some point this year, we will have achieved 2,500 programs for our community!  And a dozen years of service in Tidewater.  We'd like to thank YOU - so please come join us on September 12.  We'll have drink tickets for artists and supporters (first come, first served); the Pagoda will have some food items for TAO guests and a special party menu, plus happy hour drink prices.  Food, friends, music, great sunset views await.   Let us know on FaceBook if you can join us ~ we hope to see you there!
The NCCA offers FREE, online training, in a series of modules, for those wishing to effectively use the arts in service of others.  The course is full of program ideas, outcomes, facilitator tips and benefits information.  TAO artists who complete this course will be offered program considerations and incentives, to the greatest extent possible; we encourage ALL participating artists to take advantage.
Tidewater Arts Outreach (TAO) is a 501c(3) Virginia not-for-profit corporation. Donations are tax-deductible.  TAO's EIN is 68-0583526.  Find us on GuideStar.
Seriously. Fun.

TAO golfers will  be in full swing again this year at Elizabeth Manor Golf and Country Club, by popular demand.  The 18 hole, par 70 course was designed back in 1948 by Dick Wilson.  A 1998 renovation allowed for dramatic improvements in play while retaining the course’s original aesthetics.  Our golfers certainly love the play here.

October 1 is sure to be a fun day of friendly competition.  We've had a terrific ten years of tournaments and we're looking forward to our 11th!

Golfers get snacks and tickets for the beverage cart and a chance to win some fine raffle swag.  We award prizes, including two flights for the top teams.  Last but not least, the Manor serves up a killer BBQ & chicken dinner.  Lots of folks return, year after year.  We hope you'll consider joining us in 2015!
