Join the Friends of the A.E. Backus Museum for a Key West-style getaway at an oceanside brunch on Jan. 27 from noon to 4 p.m. at the all new Inn at Ocean Village.

Enjoy a brunch buffet, flowing libations, unexpected surprises, outlandish characters and an auction. One lucky guest will even take home an ounce of solid gold.

No other area restaurant offers a better view of the Atlantic Ocean than The Inn at Ocean Village.

What better way to turn Sunday into a tropical getaway than to spend a Sunday in Key West supporting the arts?

Get in the spirit of the event and dress in your favorite tropical apparel. Put on your flip flops, don a straw hat and sip on a tropical cocktail while helping support the Treasure Coast's oldest arts facility.

The Backus Museum was founded by A.E. "Bean" Backus in 1960 and if there was ever someone who understood a casual good time, it was Mr. Backus. There may even be a special appearance by the "ghost of Backus."

Brunch attendees will have an opportunity to search for a bit of the Atocha's gold. In addition, there will be one-of-a-kind auction items to bid on. Six former students of Mr. Backus including: Don D. Brown, Jackie Schindehette, Rick Kelly, Camille Ogden, Judy Fuller and Paul Arsenault, as well as other area artists, have created hand-painted furniture just for the event.

Pre-paid reservations are required, so reserve a spot at the Sunday in Key West brunch by calling (772) 465-0630. Tickets are $45 for Museum members and $50 for non-members. The A.E. Backus Museum is a not-for-profit arts organization. All donations to the museum are deductible.
