Special Olympics Missouri teams up with Southeast Enterprises to host first annual Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl
KANSAS CITY – Special Olympics Missouri (SOMO) and Southeast Enterprises are proud to host the first annual Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl in Brookside on Sunday, Oct. 30 from 3-6 p.m.
We are encouraging ALL members of the community to come out to celebrate local artists with intellectual and physical disabilities!
Back in August, SOMO athletes and Southeast Enterprises employees began creating artwork for this one-of-a-kind event. At the Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl, everyone will have the opportunity to purchase this amazing art and support these two incredible organizations as well! It’s a win-win! All of the proceeds will go directly toward funding programs for SOMO and Southeast Enterprises.
The artwork will be on display at several Brookside businesses during the event, including Brooksider Bar & Grill, The Roasterie, Charlie Hoopers and Jalepenos Mexican Restaurant.
Throughout the event, visitors will be able to meet and greet with the SOMO athletes and Southeast Enterprises’ employees. There will be plenty of appetizers and drink specials at each art crawl location as well. Tickets are $30 for one or $50 for two. You can purchase tickets at www.bidpal.net/crawl or you can get them at the door! We hope to see everyone at the Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl on Oct. 30!
Media Members: We would love to have you cover this event! We also think this could be a great feel-good story leading up to it as well! Our SOMO athletes have been working very hard to create the artwork for the art crawl. If you’d like to set up an interview with a SOMO athlete either ahead of the event or at the event, please reach out to Kauffman@somo.org!
