A kickoff party reception at the West Tisbury Grange Hall will celebrate the second year of World Market Mondays. Beginning at 5:30 until 7:30 pm on Monday, July 9, the event features wine, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, art quilts from Haiti, Masai jewelry, and more, plus a performance by special guest Isaac Taylor. According to a press release, proceeds benefit World Market Mondays and women’s empowerment initiatives by Island-based nonprofits working in the developing world. Handmade crafts, art, jewelry, dolls, and home products are offered each Monday at the Grange Hall as a means for women in Africa, Haiti, and India to create sustainable artisan businesses and economic opportunity. A $20 donation is asked at the door for this event. For more information, call 508-274-1104.
