P.S. ARTS kicked off the season of giving with an event at Shinola Detroit earlier this month. Hosted by long-time P.S. ARTS supporters Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Charlie Day together with Ryan Michelle Bathe and Sterling K. Brown, holiday shoppers at The Grove were invited to give back at an event with Shinola Detroit benefitting P.S. ARTS.
Shinola’s American-made luxury goods, which include everything from watches to turntables, made holiday shopping easy and our guests especially enjoyed personalizing their purchases through Shinola’s complimentary monogramming services. Guests were also treated to tasty Umami Burger sliders and fries and artfully mixed holiday cocktails, courtesy of Stillhouse Whiskey. The evening culminated with “Let it Snow” playing in the open-air mall complete with actual snowfall–an experience The Grove will feature each day at 7-8 p.m. until December 25.
We are grateful to the hosts, Shinola Detroit, and The Grove for a wonderful evening benefiting arts education, ensuring P.S. ARTS continues to provide access to high-quality in- and after-school arts programs for under-resourced public schools, including community engagement initiatives that encourage families to create together.
