As of Monday, Oct. 1, RACZ had raised nearly $2,000, but event organizer Joy Petty said the tallies were not finalized.
The RACZ fundraising event, which promoted the work of 29 local artists in 21 businesses, was also designed to stimulate local economy.
Residents from Zachary and neighboring communities attended the event, which began with an early morning promotion Sept. 28 on WBRZ's 2une In with Dave Nussbaum.
Artists from RACZ and the Zachary Artists Guild gathered at Donald Hunt Home Design, along with Mayor David Amrhein and community members to welcome Nussbaum and his crew.
"The visual art, music and wonderful theatrical performances were all a perfect testament to the talent we have right here at home," said Petty. "It couldn't have been a more perfect evening. Now we're focusing on ways to make the event even bigger and even better."
Art lovers toured local businesses while viewing the stellar work of local artists. "Our local merchants were able to show the public all the products and services they have to offer," said Petty. "Overall this event was a win-win for everyone. Artists were able to show off their talents, while the businesses were able to show off their goods and services."
Live music and theatrical productions were also featured at several stops along route.
In addition, a wine and beer tasting was held inside the Zachary Chamber of Commerce.
Zachary's first-ever Fall Art Crawl was modeled after Baton Rouge art events such as White Light Nights and Hot Art, Cool Nights.
The Zachary Artists Guild also hosted a Silent Auction Fundraiser, which reportedly went well.
