In 2007, four well-loved local women named Holly, Blue Parrot Bistro co-owner Holly Giles, realtor and Adams County Arts Council president Holly Purdy, dance instructor Holly Fox, and Coordinator for Wellspan’s Community Health Improvement program Holly Cookerly performed at a Gettysburg Dance Center concert which benefited the Arts Council. Now The Hollies are reuniting to “make a splash” at the Arts Council’s Annual Garden Party on Sunday, June 5, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the home of Jennifer and David LeVan, Gettysburg.
According to Purdy, “There’s a tradition at the party that we call diving divas. Over the years, brave people have kindly agreed to jump in the pool in exchange for donations to the Arts Council. This year, we’re raising funds for our new arts education center on South Washington Street which we’re opening this fall. So, I thought I’d ask The Hollies if they’d be willing to “dive for dollars” and they enthusiastically agreed. We might try some synchronized swimming so it should be a lot of fun for a great cause.”
There’s still time to make reservations for the party where you’ll see what’s blooming in Jen’s garden, hang out at the pool bar, enjoy great food and conversation and be treated to the LeVan’s gracious hospitality. Reservations are $50 per person, requested by June 3, and available through the Arts Council office at 717 334-5006 or online at adamsarts.org. All proceeds benefit the Arts Council’s programs throughout the county and its mission of cultivating an arts-rich community.
