MORROW — Hundreds of big “kids” partied together Saturday to raise money for little children.

Arts Clayton supporters gathered at the Morrow Center for the organization’s annual Arte Gras fundraiser. The party is held as a benefit for the group’s arts education programs, including ArtVan and Read to Succeed Through the Arts. This year’s theme was “Classic Hollywood,” and attendees were greeted by the sight of two vintage cars from the 1930s upon arrival.

Faux gambling, dancing, raffles and dinner were also parts of the event.
