The 4th Annual Artilicious

By Erika Muscat

Save the date for Wednesday, November 29, where you will have the chance to ignite your senses to epic proportions — the 4th Annual Artilicious — presented by Caesars Windsor and benefitting The Kidney Foundation of Canada, is back. From 5 to 8 p.m. on this date inside Caesars Windsor in the Augustus Ballroom, prepare to be wowed!

Let’s start with taste.

Over 20 local eateries generously donate their food to serve to guests. You will likely be full after sampling from just a few; however, you have the opportunity to try every single one, while quantities last.

Next comes sight, otherwise known as the Art in Artilicious.

Local, handmade, quality works of art and fine craft are available for purchase and what better a time for this, than just before the holidays. Check off those hard to buy for and extra special people in your life by buying them something unique and thoughtful.

Sound. Not sure where to start? Well AM800 CKLW’s very own Kara Ro, will be emceeing loud and clear so you know exactly what is going on at this event.

Smell. Oh the smells! From offerings such as Seafood Chowder to Meat Lasagna to Butter Chicken on last year’s line-up, the variety is endless. McCafe is also providing their coffee free of charge.

Touch. Need a night out? Haven’t seen a particular friend in a while? Artilicious is the perfect opportunity to gather and give that long-lost person a great big hug and spend an evening, all while supporting local.

Fun.

Okay, we know this isn’t one of the senses, but where else can you crack open a noodle and have a table of 10 explode with excitement because you are a winner? That’s right, the popular noodle raffle returns too. For only $1 each or 6 for $5, you have pretty good odds at winning a prize such as a $25 to $50 gift certificate to a restaurant and more!

Now that you want to come to this event, here is how you get tickets. Visit one of the following locations in person: Nancy Johns Gallery & Framing (4755 Wyandotte Street East in Windsor) and Windermere Art Gallery (2120 Windermere Road, Windsor). Tickets are $25 and available until November 25 or for $30 at the door. You can also purchase tickets online and find the answer to any questions you may have online.

All proceeds raised from Artilicious are contributed to The Kidney Foundation of Canada, Windsor & District Chapter, a non-profit organization committed to kidney health and improved lives for people living with kidney disease.

Artilicious is proudly supported by AM800 CKLW, Biz X magazine, Caesars Windsor, CTV, Eyes on Windsor, Infiniti of Windsor, Riverview Steel and Windsor Police Services.
