Tampa Bay Informer - Pinellas Community

Frank Crum and wife Brenda with painter Ernest C. Simmons and winners Cyndi and Steve Heller - Photo by Simean SkolfeldMartinis and Matisse is possibly one of Clearwater's most “cosmopolitan” fundraisers. On January 30th, for the seventh consecutive year, guests sipped on martinis courtesy of Bonefish Grill and sampled delicious entrees from restaurants like Carrabas and the Baystar Restaurant Group while slipping tickets into over-sized martini glasses to bid on the work of local artists, filling the lobby of the Frank Crum building. Early in the evening, these glasses contained a ticket or two, enticing attendees with the hope of taking home the pieces they coveted. By the end of the event, they were brimming to the top with bids, each ticket representing a donation to the Clearwater Free Clinic.
