We Had So Much Fun Last Year, We Are Doing It Again!

Last year we tried something a little different with the GIG Fundraiser (The GIG With A Twist!). We had such a great time and had wonderful, positive feedback regarding the event from all of those who attended, so we are going to do it again this year!

The Kit Worthington Foundation For The Arts will be hosting a different type of Fundraiser again this year on Sunday, May 15th in the Bistro 45 Courtyard.

Here’s the Scoop:

  • Date: Sunday, May 15th
  • Location: Bistro 45 Courtyard
  • Tickets Will Go On Sale April 15th, 2022 (No reservations can be taken sooner).

What: Three separate wine tastings throughout the day, with three distinct time-slots, with no more than 50 reservations taken for each wine tasting.  You will be able to request your desired table size (2-top, 4-top, 6-top, 10-top, or “party size”, depending on your comfort level).

Times: Choose your time slot: 12:00 Noon to 1:30pm; 2:00pm to 3:30pm; or 4:00pm to 5:30pm. The 30 minutes in between tastings will be used to clean tables and get ready for the next seating. 

Cost: $30.00 per person.  Must Be Reserved And Paid In Advance. Ticket price includes 5 wines to taste, appetizers for the table, live music, and a GIG wine glass to take home with you, plus special pricing on wines to purchase for your table or to take home!

What to Expect: Bistro 45 will be closed to the public that day. Only those with pre-paid tickets will be allowed in for this special private seated event. You must choose One of the three time slots to attend, and reserve and pre-pay for your chosen time. Seating will be outdoors with restaurant heaters if needed. The event will go on rain or shine, but should weather be unusually inclement, seating options will be made available indoors or under the covered patio.

Instead of a silent auction this year, there will be multiple high-end raffle items to choose from.   Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event.  There may even be a few surprise “pop-up” raffle items!

Bistro 45 will also be celebrating their 21th Anniversary on this date!

Come join us for this Annual Kick-Off To Summer with a Twist!

The GIG Announces Grant Opportunities for Students

The GIG (Kit Worthington Foundation for the Arts) is a non-profit foundation created to help student musicians, artists, and playwrights aspire to their dreams through education, inspiration, and opportunity by way of scholarship funds.

We will help in strengthening and connecting the local community to the arts through events, programs, and scholarships. We will help financially assist budding enthusiasts to advance in their artistic endeavors.

The McCall, Idaho based Kit Worthington Foundation for the Arts (the GIG) invites grant requests from students from McCall, Donnelly, Cascade and New Meadows, Idaho.

The mission of the foundation is to help young students achieve their dreams through education, inspiration and opportunity.

The foundation strengthens and connects the local community to the arts through events, programs and scholarships. Grants will be awarded to individuals and nonprofit organizations that are interested in pursuing their artistic goals and contributing to a vibrant local arts community.

Funds to support the Kit Worthington Foundation’s grant making program are raised through the annual “GIG” wine tasting and silent auction held at the Bistro 45 each spring and through other GIG activities.
