Grand Opening of Bliss 101
Bliss 101 will celebrate the opening of its new 4,000-square-foot gallery and gift shop in Encinitas with a Grand Opening celebration from 5 to 10 p.m., May 7. Featuring local artists and live music, the event will begin with a wine and cheese reception and live painting demo by one of Bliss 101’s local artists and will include live entertainment from The Red Foxtails.
Striving to leave a positive impact on the local and global community by supporting artists, craftspeople and fair-trade collectives, while focusing on reclaimed, recycled and sustainable materials, Bliss 101 will donate the proceeds from the grand opening to Shelter Box, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the people of Japan rebuild their lives after the recent earthquakes and tsunami. Attendees are encouraged to bid on artwork and gift packs in the silent auction, make a cash donation or purchase an eco-minded gift from the gift shop (a percent of the proceeds will be donated to Shelter Box).
Location: 687 S. Coast Hwy. 101, Encinitas 92024. For more information, call 760-487-1900 or visit Bliss101.com.
