We’re gearing up for our 2nd annual Gingerbread Homes for the Arts fundraising event centered around the time-honored holiday tradition of making gingerbread houses. All proceeds from the Gingerbread Homes for the Arts benefit SKyPAC’s arts education outreach programs. Our three-day Gingerbread Homes for the Arts extravaganza will begin on Thursday, November 17, 2016 with a full day dedicated to 3rd -5th grade students from regional schools. Students will have the opportunity to decorate gingerbread house cookies, guided by the Culinary Arts Student Chefs from Southcentral Kentucky Community & Technical College, tour the Gingerbread Home contest entries, and experience a special Main Stage presentation by Alaska’s Fiddling Poet, Ken Waldman. For more information about about the school-day portion of this event please contact 270-904-7009.
