Cocktails, dinner, live music, dancing, an awards ceremony, a live auction and a silent auction all take place on the sprawling lawn under tents at the historic Wing Fort House on Saturday, August 11th from, 4-8 pm for the second annual Art & Soul Gala, a fundraiser for the Sandwich Arts Alliance.

The public is invited to join in the fun, enjoy great food provided by Montilio’s Baking Company, dance to live music with the Oysters and bid on auction items if they choose, while the Alliance awards two honorees: Cafe Chew owners, Bob King and Tobin Wirt, and the Sandwich Library for their generous contributions over the years of both time and space in support of the Arts in Sandwich.

Mark Snyder, SAA board member, will emcee the event and auction off items including Boston Red Sox tickets, a Liberte Schooner Cruise for 4, Two Nights at the Inn at Cook Street, Provincetown and Two Nights at the Dan’l Webster Inn as well as original paintings and art work.

“The Art & Soul Gala will help make it possible for the Alliance to move forward with an increasing number of classes, performances and exhibitions showcasing over 300 talented SAA artists, and to continue promoting all areas of the Arts in the Sandwich community”, offered event manager Anne Sayer.

Dinner, provided by family owned Monitilio’s Baking Company, will feature a wide array of selections in addition to an “On The Go” Wood Fired Pizza Oven, a copper pizza oven from Italy set atop an antique wagon. There will also be a full-service bar offering a variety of cold beverages.

 “The Board of the Wing Family of America generously agreed to host the Art & Soul fundraiser on their property” added Sayer, “The event is summer chic and promises to be a wonderful Cape Cod summer experience in a beautiful setting for all who wish to come and help make it a success.”

Tickets are $65 and available online at or at the following locations: Splash Stationers and Titcomb’s Book Store, both on Route 6A, and Sundance at Merchant’s Square. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
