We have booked a new dinner venue for the Arlington Heights Artist Signing Dinner on Friday, September 7, 2012. We will be eating at the Birch River Grill within the Doubletree Hotel itself. When I get specifics on menu I will post that information.

Here is some more information about the dinner and the signing. There will be dessert! The restaurant will serve cookies to each table. We will be playing Bingo for some nice prizes. After dinner we move to a conference room where our two artists will give a short talk.

Some rules for the signing. You may bring two ornaments to be signed each time you pass through the line. There is a 30 second limit with each artist.

We are having a raffle to benefit two charities in Wheeling Township. The proceeds from the raffle will be evenly split between Meals on Wheels for Seniors and the Wheeling Township Food Pantry. The items for the raffle are the Stove signed by all of the artists who worked on it and the four (1992) Sky Line series railroad cars – locomotive, coal car, stock car and caboose. Raffle tickets are $5.00 each or 3/$10.00. Please be generous. You will need to print your name and phone number on the back of the ticket. You need not be present to win. The names will be drawn immediately at the end of the signing. There will be two winners – one for the signed stove and the other for the four railroad cars. Tickets for the raffle will be sold at the dinner on Friday and at the store on Saturday.

I am hoping people will open their rooms for room hopping both before and after the dinner. Since the dinner restaurant is at the hotel, there is no travel time necessary to get to the dinner. When first checking out hotels for this signing, the hotel managements were concerned about security of having doors blocked open. We could not "officially" organize this fun activity. I hope people someone let each other know that their room is open for shopping.

So what time will the store open Saturday? Are tickets to purchase the event pieces going to be handed out before the store opens? We are traveling about 3.5 hours so I just kinda wanted a heads up.

Thanks

here is info you requested...

store opens at 9 a.m.
opens 9 am for event piece set purchases only


you must have the specially created ticket , to be able to purchase one set of event pieces.. the pieces are only for purchase by adults

signing starts at 10 am

if after you make your purchase and you want any 2 ornaments signed... you must go back to enter the signing line

the store is handing out a different kind of ticket with signing times. you must have a signing ticket to get your items signed

hope this answers you questions
