The 100 Club of Arizona, a nonprofit that provides assistance to public safety officers and their families, will be the beneficiary of the Scottsdale Gallery Association’s Gold Palette ArtWalk.

Themed “Demonstrate…and Donuts,” the event is from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday, January 14. This special Gold Palette ArtWalk will feature donut-sampling opportunities at many of the Scottsdale Arts Districts’ participating galleries along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to Fifth Avenue.

Local donut shops are donating the sweet treats, and entertainment includes traditional bagpipe musical performances and demonstrations from local artists.

“We are indebted to the protection and safety that our Scottsdale Police and Fire departments provide to residents and businesses throughout the city,” said French Thompson, Scottsdale Gallery Association president.

“This event is a fun and unique way for us to engage the community, thank these first responders for their service and give back to them for all they do for us.”
