After walking to district as the Mad Hatter during the October Gallery Hop committee chairman, Charly Bauer of JeniÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ice Cream is Ã¢â‚¬Å“most excited about the VIP and the staging area. This year we will have a high-end experience with a heated tent, private bar, and front stage viewing. Get your tickets now, they are only $50 before October 15th.
