An Evening in Casablanca

[slideshow_deploy id=’76863′]

During a Moroccan themed, members gala, the Colusa County Arts Council showcased an evening in Casablanca.

The organization, with the help of several Colusa High School Students, transformed the Art Council’s Gallery into a Moroccan paradise.

“We are so very grateful that Colusa High School allowed us to use their prom decorations,” said Cheryl Goodman, event organizer, “The seniors had a Moroccan themed prom, and their decorations worked out perfectly.”

Area restaurants provided the hors d’oeuvres, as 65 guests mixed and mingled before the showing of the 1942 film Casablanca.

The Colusa Theater donated their facility for the special showing.

“It was the greatest blend of the community,” said Goodman, “It was beautiful to see the support and to see everyone having a great time.”

Colusa City Mayor, Tom Reische commented that it was a great event, and it was an excellent way to support the Arts Council.

Guest bartenders, Heath Roper, and Michael Hickel, donated their tips for the evening back to the organization, and the Colusa Highs School Cheerleaders served guests appetizers.

In addition to food, drinks and a movie, a costume contest was held for the best 40’s themed attire. The winners of the peer-selected costume contest were Brendan and Megan Farrell, of Colusa.

Sponsors for the event included: Country Stop, Don Habanero’s Mexican Restaurant, Griff’s Feed & Seed, Granzella’s Deli, Kim’s Deli, La Cabana, Louis Cairos, Maxwell Inn, Messick’s Ace Hardware, Pina’s Juice Bar, Premier Mushrooms, Riverbank Pizza, Sweet Bean Bakery, Taco’s El Amigo, The Refuge, Two Chicks Creations, Wild Hair, Williams Chinese Restaurant, Rocco’s Bar & Grill, Round Table Pizza, Shop N Save, Sam’s Club, Squaw Creek Inn and Smokey’s Catering.
