“Auction for the Arts”, Macon County Arts Council’s annual fund raiser, is fast approaching! Last year’s money from the auction funded several of MCAC’s children’s programs. This next year the Young Americans will once again visit Macon County; this year’s profits will help fund that event. MCAC also offfers “Art in the Park ” and Teen Art Classes annually — all this thanks to help from auction contributors!
The date for “Auction for the Arts” is Saturday, September 6th, at 6:00 p.m. It will be held at the Sally Wells Building on the Macon County Fairgrounds. The evening will include a supper by “Linda’s Catering”, musical entertainment by the local group “Kinship” and guitarist/ singer Miles Gibson, and the auction. Ben Bray will again serve as our auctioneer.
If you are an artist or craftsperson, MCAC would appreciate your donating a piece for the auction. In gratitude, each participating artist or craftsperson will be given a complimentary ticket to the event. Kathy Eden has offered her shop, Frame It, as the drop-off place for donated work. Work should be delivered by Aug.13. Tickets ($10 each) for the event are available from MCAC board members or from Frame-It. If you have questions or would like to reserve tickets, please contact Kathy Eden at 666-7644 (firstname.lastname@example.org), Nancy Doss at 644-5179 (email@example.com), or Lucky Collins at 666-0646 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
