SECOND ANNUAL “TURTLE PALOOZA!”
TO BENEFIT GAMBLE ROGERS STATE PARK
OCEAN ART GALLERY MONTH-LONG SHOW
TO RAISE MONEY FOR FRIENDS GROUP
ORMOND BEACH, FL – Ocean Art Gallery continues its community commitment when it conducts “Turtle Palooza!” at its Granada Plaza location, 197 E Granada Blvd. in Ormond Beach. This second annual event showcasing art featuring sea turtles will raise money for the Friends of Gamble Rogers, a volunteer 501C3 group that supports the state park through various projects. The art show will have an Opening Reception at 5-8 pm on Saturday, November 3, with artists, park staff, FROGRS members, live music, and refreshments.
Gallery owner Frank Gromling said, “Turtle Palooza last year was such a success that we agreed with the Friends executive board to do it again this year and into the future.” Ten percent of sea turtle art sales during November and 100% of all art raffle proceeds are donated to FROGRS. Watercolor artist and gallery co-owner Bibi Gromling donated "Amazing Grace" for this year’s raffle, with tickets $10 or three for $25. Frank and Bibi Gromling encourage all sea turtle and art lovers to buy sea turtle art and raffle tickets to benefit the local state park.
