The fine print: 

The purpose of this event is to provide a "friendraiser" to generate more supporters for STARworks and our programs. Our STARworks glass artists and guest artists will demonstrate their skills in the studio as they push the limits of hot glass to put on a show. 100% of proceeds benefit STARworks. All ages are invited to attend, however patrons must be 21 years of age with a valid ID for consumption of adult beverages. Please drink responsibly.
