SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The camaraderie and competition of an old-fashioned scavenger hunt are what Jared Hadaway loves about the activity. While Hadaway has participated in many scavenger hunts in his lifetime, he hopes to plan one for his city.

"The idea is still early in planning, but I hope to approach the city with their unique scavenger hunt," says Hadaway. "They are fun, competitive, and great for team building."

Hadaway has always wondered why more communities and groups don't have these kinds of hunts. He knows companies across the country have their own for team-building exercises, but not cities.

"It's a terrific way for neighbors to meet and socialize, all while earning great prizes and having fun," adds Hadaway. "Why not bring the community together and have a blast? It's a win-win situation."

Scavenger hunts have been a staple for children and at birthday parties. Kids have a great team exploring and finding prizes. But that doesn't mean adults can't have the same fun throughout the city.

Hadaway is adamant about the benefits of organizing an event like a hunt. Plus, adults have a whole city to explore, not just a house like children do.

"Organizing a scavenger hunt with adults involved opens up endless possibilities," explains Hadaway. "The whole city can be utilized for the hunt, which makes it exciting."

Hadaway has mentioned his idea to friends and family, and they echo his excitement. Some have already volunteered to sign up right now for the hunt, and also offer assistance.

Combing The History Of The City With A Fun Event

What makes the scavenger hunt unique for adults is that companies around the city can donate locations and items. Hadaway has already started a list of companies to approach.

"Picture a scavenger hunt all over the city," says Hadaway. "Teams competing against each other. Companies and businesses are offering locations for clues and finds already. It would be a huge event and hopefully starting a trend for other cities."

First, Hadaway will need to pick a theme for the scavenger hunt. While people and businesses are already getting a head start on being involved, these have to relevant to the idea.

The hunt could be an every year event that happens in the city. What Hadaway wants to do is make each hunt different from the previous years. He's leaning towards recognizing the city's heritage and history for the first scavenger hunt.

"This community has a rich history and landmarks that not many people know about," explains Hadaway. "Also, the first event could pay homage to those landmarks.

With the winter months approaching, the scavenger hunt won't take place until at least the spring. This planning period gives Hadaway time to pitch the idea to the city and compile a list of vendors.

"Being prepared is key before I go to the city and make my official presentation," Hadaway adds. "I want this event to happen, so having all the bases covered is important."

Another Hunt Geared Towards Children In The Works

The adults won't be the only ones able to have fun. Hadaway also hopes to incorporate a city-wide children's scavenger hunt. With the help from parents, children could travel around the city in kid-themed businesses and landmarks.

"Children could benefit learning more about this beautiful and history-rich city," Hadaway proudly states. "Of course, adults would need to help, but the prizes and clues geared towards children."

There are parades throughout the year celebrating different holidays. Those events happen every year. Hadaway hopes to begin a yearly tradition with the scavenger hunt. Look for the idea to be pitched to the city late next year.

"If this happens, I would be grateful and proud to head the scavenger hunt," Hadaway concludes.

Steve Sucher Planning Big Bingo Night For Local Retirement Home

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Everybody loves playing games and winning big prizes. Steve Sucher is planning on bringing fun and excitement in the form of a bingo fundraiser for the local retirement community.

This kind of event works well with raising money, but also giving donors and attendees a way to have joy at the same time. Sucher has been planning for few months but hopes next year to have a date finally.

"I visit the local retirement home often for family, and I've noticed some amenities are outdated," explains Sucher. "A fundraiser would be great to raise money to get some new things around the building."

Idea Beings Planning Stage

Sucher thought long and hard about what would be an ideal fundraiser idea, and bingo night seemed to be a perfect choice. It's easy to put together, and all you need is a large room with bingo supplies.

With the holidays coming up, Sucher wants to make sure the event gets the proper attention and publicity. After all, it's about raising money for the facility and bettering the living of the retirement community.

"Bingo night is huge here and already has a large attendance," adds Sucher. "But bringing outside people in to play and a chance to earn prizes while raising money will be a fun night."

Again, the idea is early in planning mode but has become the talk of the building among the residents. But Sucher wants to do it right and make sure it gets attention around the city.

"Residents of the city don't know about the out of date amenities around here," Sucher says. "Coming here for the bingo night and seeing what can be improved would be great for donations too."

Prizes For Winners And Contestants

Because each game will have a price to play, every bingo card involved will be part of the funds raised. There will also be an offer for one price for unlimited games for the night.

When it comes to prizes, there will be different levels available. Single ticket game winners can select smaller prizes. The more you win and save tickets, you can get bigger prizes.

These prizes would be donations from local shops in the city. From small to large donation items to gift certificates, Sucher plans on making the awards a big part of the night.

"I've planned out a long list of potential vendors and donors for the night," says Sucher. "This night will be all about raising money, but I want to help local shops get noticed too."

A lot of planning comes into a night like this. Sucher has talked with residents and workers from the retirement home, and they love the idea. Potential volunteers have reached out to Sucher about being available during the night.

Raising Money For Improving Retirement Home

"Some of the board games and recreation equipment needs to be updated," states Sucher. "Residents said they have reached out to the building's managers, but lack of funds is the reason for no help."

The large courtyard is just a slab of concrete. But if the bingo night raises enough money, Sucher hopes to turn the area into a recreation spot.

From shuffleboard to bocce ball, these games played by residents and their visiting families. Also, adding picnic tables with an area for cookouts will benefit the courtyard.

"We get some nice weather for a good portion of the year," adds Sucher. "Making the outdoor area better for playing would bring more residents outside."

While the idea is perfected, Sucher hopes to start planning the official date after the holidays. Whenever this event takes place, the residents will appreciate the kindness.

Oil paintings by William Gear and Wesley Elbridge Webber take top lot honors at Bruneau & Co.'s November 25th auction

Oil on canvas painting by Scottish-born abstract modernist William Gear ($11,875).

Large oil on canvas maritime seascape by Wesley Elbridge Webber ($9,375).

Figural bronze sculpture of a woman by Mexican muralist Francisco Zuniga ($4,062).

Large oil and acrylic on canvas abstract painting by Dominican modernist Candido Bido ($2,000).

Oil on canvas laid on Masonite by Mexican artist Manuel Herrera Cartalla ($2,812).

An oil on canvas landscape by Scottish-born abstract modernist William Gear and a large oil on canvas maritime seascape by Wesley Elbridge Webber led the sale.

The auction was a great way to end the Thanksgiving weekend. It was interesting to see such heightened international interest in the William Gear landscape and the pair of James Rizzi lithographs.”

— Kevin Bruneau

CRANSTON, R.I., UNITED STATES, November 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — CRANSTON, R.I. – An oil on canvas landscape painting by the Scottish-born abstract modernist William Gear (1915-1997), titled Paysage, Mai 50 (May Landscape, 1950), sold for $11,875, and a large oil on canvas maritime seascape work of a brigantine ship at sea by Wesley Elbridge Webber (Am., 1841-1914) brought $9,375 at Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ November 25th sale.

The 436-lot Estate, Antiques, Fine & Decorative Art Auction was held in Bruneau & Co.’s gallery, located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, plus online via Bidlive.Bruneauandco.com, Invaluable.com, LiveAuctioneers.com and Bidsquare.com. About 210 people attended the sale in person, while another 11,487 registered to bid online. Phone and absentee bids were also taken.

As expected, the William Gear painting was the auction’s top lot, finishing at the top of of an eclectic mix of merchandise that featured period furniture, fine art, sculptures, modern design, art pottery, Waterford crystal, Baccarat chandeliers, fine Oriental rugs and carpets, and other rare, unusual items from across New England. In the end, the sale grossed a rather robust $187,285.

The Gear painting depicted an amalgamation of abstracted naturalistic forms in an earthly palette over a gray background, and was housed in a 33 inch by 26 ½ inch frame. The work was signed and dated in the lower right corner (and verso) and had a compelling back story and provenance.

In 1950, the same year Gear painted Paysage, Mai 50, he left Paris, where he’d been living, for New York, to take part in a joint exhibition with his esteemed contemporary, Jackson Pollock. It would be Gear’s one and only American exhibition. While in the States, Gear met the woman who would be his future wife – Deborah Chertok – and he gifted this very painting to her sister.

The maritime seascape painting by Wesley Elbridge Webber was indeed large, at 50 inches by 80 inches (framed). It depicted a brigantine vessel at sea, with the bow facing the foreground and a cutter vessel trailing behind, with two steam-powered vessels in the background. The painting, signed by Webber, also showed two figures in administrative uniform, and a buoy in the water.

“The auction was a great way to end the Thanksgiving weekend,” said Bruneau & Co. President Kevin Bruneau. “It was interesting to see such heightened international interest in the William Gear landscape and the pair of James Rizzi lithographs while being offered in the United States.”

He was referring to the two cut-out, three-dimensional lithograph assemblages by the noted pop artist James Rizzi (N.Y., 1950-2011). One, titled Sidewalk Café (1987), depicted a bustling city with a café in the foreground ($4,062). The other, titled Fall (1988), showed city dwellers in a park, observing the turning foliage ($2,500). Both lithos were artist-signed, titled and numbered.

Two artworks by Mexican muralists found their way into the list of top lots. One was a figural bronze sculpture of a woman by Francisco Zuniga (1912-1998), 23 ¼ inches tall on a beveled black marble plinth ($4,062). The woman was depicted as pregnant and barefoot, dressed in a rebozo and long skirt. The work was signed (“Zuniga”), dated (“1972”) and editioned (4 of 10).

The other was an oil on canvas laid on Masonite by Manuel Herrera Cartalla (1915-1977). The painting depicted a fiddler and his son, despondently seated and barefoot on a grey blanket, each with blank, emotionless expressions ($2,812). The signed work measured 21 ½ inches by 27 inches, framed. Cartalla was a contemporary of the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera (1886-1957).

“This auction truly exemplified the shift in antique and fine art collectors and what they collect today,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer. “The Francisco Zuniga sculpture and the Manuel Herrera Cartalla painting received an astounding amount of attention from onlookers in the gallery, just as if they were the two Wesley Webbers from 20 years ago.”

Two very different lots each posted an identical selling price of $2,375. One was a large, 19th century Japanese Meiji period gilt wood folding screen, consisting of six panels decorated with a rickshaw holding a twin-handled squat vessel with chrysanthemum and wisteria. Each panel measured 24 inches wide by 84 inches tall – an impressive sight at 12 feet wide when opened.

The other was an American-made, circa-1969 Schwinn Stingray Pea Picker bicycle from the Krate series, introduced in 1968. The bike featured a five-speed center Stik-shift with spring suspension fork, a spring cushion saddle seat and enhanced braking and handling (compared to the non-Krate series, standard Stingray model). The bicycle appeared to be an original survivor.

A large oil and acrylic on canvas abstract painting by the Dominican modernist Candido Bido (1936-2011), titled El Drama, signed and dated (1991), realized $2,000. The work depicted two opposing female busts staggered in height, with an abstract form bird in the foreground. The painting was executed in Dido’s iconic blazing yellow, turquoise blue and fiery orange palette.

Rounding out just some of the sale’s highlights, an American 19th century primitive folk art step-back pine hutch, consisting of a cabinet and two-drawer low section with a beveled door front supporting a multi-tier shelving unit, breezed to $1,875. The 77 ½ inch tall by 76 inch wide hutch was finished in black over red stain and was in overall good shape, with just minor wear.

Makes a Great Gift, "We are Woodstock" the Novel. It Tells a Love Story at the Greatest Concert of the Hippie Movement.

This novel puts you right on the grounds of the Woodstock Festival

A love story that takes place at the Woodstock Festival

Between these pages is a wonderful love story

Learn of the performances, behind the scene shenanigans, and the future of the stars

This novel puts you right on the grounds of the Woodstock Festival

The Woodstock Festival: 3 Days of Peace & Music

Through the pages of this historical, fictional, autobiographical novel of the Woodstock Festival, the author will send you back in time to that very weekend.

A love story that takes place at the Woodstock Festival.”

— Glenn Eldridge

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, November, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

This wonderful novel puts you on Yasgur’s Farm on the weekend of August 15, 1969. You will be at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair. It’s an easy read and a fun trip as the Hippie Movement of the 1960s comes to a close. It's a novel, not a book of facts. You will live the concert as if you were there. This concert had the who’s who of rock groups of the time, when musicians weren’t seen on TV like today. This was the place that many hippies got their first glimpse of the musical artists, who’s music shaped us all.

This festival was billed as 3 Days of Peace & Music and as Max Yasgur uttered on stage, “Nothing but peace and music.” What makes this book different is that it isn’t from one of the promoters or one of the performers point of view, this novel is by one of the spectators, a person in the audience, a person like you. As you read, he tells you of his story, which to him is one of the greatest weekend of his life. Glenn Eldridge, Author of We are Woodstock, describes the novel as, "A love story that takes place at the Woodstock Festival." It starts with Glenn getting fired at work and getting dumped by his girlfriend and then meeting Gail the first night there.

He purchased his tickets when they first went on sale and still has them today. They can be seen on the back cover of the book. He arrives a day early with a couple of friends, so they miss the traffic jam, but you will learn all about that. How? As the reader you will learn it as the central character does, though radio reports and headlines of the news, that are sometimes read from the stage. Also you will hear all the announcements, where the infirmaries can be found and which acid to avoid.

This novel is made interesting because the words translates to your eyes as the whole festival opens up to your senses. The grounds of Yasgur’s Farm is described from the camping areas to the concert area to the Hog Farm area, where people are feed for free. You will see the crowds like ocean waves covering the landscape. The way they are dressed and the way so many came unprepared for the weekend. You’ll learn how the promoters found Max Yasgur’s Farm for this Aquarian Exposition, another name it was known by, and what a great deal Max made for himself when leasing his land, since the festival was scheduled to begin in 30 days from when they found him. There are many fun facts to learn from this book before, during and after this historic event.

You’ll learn about the performer too stoned to get on stage, others stoned that went on anyway. One group refuse to play in the rain and it did rain. One artist had to sing to prove who she was because she forgot her backstage pass. You’ll learn about the emcee who was chosen less than an hour before his first announcement and the fact that the Governor was going to end the concert by calling in the troops. There is so much to learn in this fun read.

Did I mention that between the main character going skinny dipping, dealing with dumb girls and wondering whether he should be broken hearted about his girlfriend dumbing him, that he meets a free-spirited flower child named Gail. She not only wins Glenn’s heart, but as the reader you to will fall in love with her.

Makes a great gift for the holiday, so you can relive your hippie years or let your children know what summed up the 60’s in general. It was the first really big concert that brought people from all over the country and the world to celebrate a way of life.

This is a fictional, historical autobiographical story of the greatest Rock & Roll event ever. It will never happen again. People just came to hear the music, be peaceful and see the artists that they only knew through their music. Remember back in 1969, the Mets won the World Series, Manson did his dirty deed and we landed on the moon. Woodstock was the final expression of a generation, after that we left the 60s and went on to the 70s.

If you weren’t there, this novel will put you there and if you were, let this novel take you back. By the way, Michael Lang wanted Roy Rogers to end the concert singing “Happy Trail.” Roy himself said, “If I were there with all those hippies, they would have boo’d me off the stage.” I’m not so sure they would have, but for an informative story and a delightful love story, pick up a copy and read We are Woodstock. You can also find this book on the selves at the Woodstock Museum in Upstate New York. Visit it.

An excerpt from "We are Woodstock":

The crowd is opening up like the Red Sea as she continues yelling my name as if to be looking for me, while she holds my hand and pulls me behind her. We finally get as close to the stage as we can, which is two rows from the front. At this point she spins around and puts her arms around my neck and kisses me. Now I can see what she had seen through the binoculars. On the stage, written on the drum is “The Who.” She remembered they were the one group I really wanted to see. Then comes an announcement from the stage,

“Ladies and Gentlemen, would you please show your appreciation, they came to us especially for this show, please warmly welcome, "The Who!”

"We are Woodstock"

Kardtects Starter Box Building Card set

Kardtects Building Cards gives the classic activity of building a card house a modern twist

MILLVILLE, PA, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kids across the nation are discovering the exciting world of card building. The company of Kardtects took the classic activity of building a card house and gave it a modern twist. It created a building card system which makes building card houses easier and lots more rewarding than ever before. Now, kids are building castles, jungle huts, temples, pyramids, rocket ships, and so much more, with what Jenny Kile, the founder of Kardtects, declares are the Ultimate Building Cards.

Most of us, as kids, remember trying to build a card house with slippery playing cards. It was a challenging task, but once a card house was built, the feeling of accomplishment was extremely satisfying. Kardtects has made this timeless activity easier by developing cards specifically designed for building card structures.

The award winning Kardtects building cards are unique in size, texture, thickness, and design. The company offers three different starter sets and styles. Kids can build castles with the Grisroc starter set, pyramids with the Lost Desert set, jungle huts with the Forbidden Jungle set, or any other kind of card structure they imagine with any of the sets.

Impressive card landscapes and scenes are being built with Kardtects cards. Kids are creating new worlds out of the cards and having lots of fun doing so. Limitless building fun is inside every box.

The company recently launched a How to Build a Card House video series on their YouTube channel. Watching the videos demonstrates the many types of structures kids can choose to build, and shows kids how to build them. Just like when baking a cake or building with Legos, there are recipes or certain methods to follow for best results, there are simple methods to follow when building a card house with Kardtects. The new video series is showing these.

Kids are realizing building a card house with Kardtects is not difficult and can be very rewarding. Kile says once a child learns how to Lean one card against another card, there is nothing stopping them to build card towers over their heads or card houses to fill entire rooms. They become 'Master Kardtects' (master card architects).

Kardtects provides kids with the ultimate building cards to create incredible structures. They are the new cards in town.

You are cordially invited to the party of the season at the Stahlbaums' on Christmas Eve. Yes…it’s The Nutcracker.

Available now at online and retail booksellers.

As a complement to the live production, Fossil Mountain Publishing has released a retelling of the ballet, Prince Dustin and Clara: Deep In The Black Forest.

There is no limit to what a person can do that has been inspired by the arts!”

— Fossil Mountain Publishing

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Twas the night before Christmas…and the party begins. From New York to San Francisco; London to Australia, little ballerinas and pint-sized soldiers have given up their e-devices and favorite television shows to attend rehearsals for their town’s local production of The Nutcracker. Although the youngest members of the cast, they have to manage to get their homework done, often-times sprawled out on the floor of the rehearsal studio; continue their ballet classes, typically 3 or more times a week; all while meeting the rigorous Nutcracker rehearsal schedule. However, these young performers wouldn’t have it any other way. Soon they will be on stage wearing a beautiful party dress of satin or perhaps mouse ears and whiskers, dancing alongside the professional cast in a spectacular performance of one of the season’s most popular productions, The Nutcracker.

While rehearsing on stage, only the strong voice of the Production’s Director and the sound of the music can be heard. Everyone else, performers waiting patiently to rehearse and parents anxiously watching, can barely be heard. They softly whisper to avoid gaining the attention of the commanding Director. This is in stark contrast to what is happening backstage. Backstage, there’s a whirlwind of excitement! Production Assistants can be seen scurrying about; costumes must be adjusted, and props must be repaired. The list is endless in what goes on before opening night. The young performers don’t seem to notice the organized chaos all around them. When not doing homework, they can be heard chattering and laughing, as they play card games. And although some reality TV shows may depict otherwise, in reality, many of the young performers often form lasting friendships and close bonds.

As a complement to your holiday festivities and entertainment, Fossil Mountain Publishing is excited to announce the release of PRINCE DUSTIN AND CLARA: DEEP IN THE BLACK FOREST, a re-telling of The Nutcracker. The author, Daniel Lee Nicholson performed in The Nutcracker for 10 years. In his debut novel, he was sure to include the essence of the ballet, including many of the dance scenes. As Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, Prince Dustin, race to escape the wrath of Egon, they encounter one adventure after another Deep in the Black Forest. The Black Forest is the setting of the Snow Scene. Nicholson incorporated much of the allure of the Black Forest in his book. Nicholson’s tale is both fantasy and adventure to appeal to those young and young-at-heart; girls and lads, dancers and non-dancers alike.

PRINCE DUSTIN AND CLARA: DEEP IN THE BLACK FOREST is available through libraries and at most online and retail booksellers.

About Daniel Lee Nicholson:
Daniel Lee Nicholson was born and raised in the Midwest. He has been a performer and ambassador of the performing and fine arts ever since his first performance as a soldier in The Nutcracker in Chicago.
