Have a Heart Local Fundraiser
Our local Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organization that has a powerful impact on our community. Jay has experienced this first hand by participating as a Big Brother for quite a few years. At its helm in our county is Karen Dacey, a woman who works above and beyond to ensure children in need have mentors and the kind of extra support that can have a lasting effect. We are grateful to Karen, to the volunteers and to the dedicated Board for their contributions to our community.
And … we are happy to share news about upcoming fundraisers that you may want to learn more about.
Have a Heart for Big Brothers Big Sisters
Dozens of local artists have contributed their time and talents for this upcoming event – a silent auction of handcrafted hearts. Each heart is a one-of-a-kind treasure uniquely designed by each artist for this special fundraiser.
A silent auction for the handcrafted hearts will be held in conjunction with the opening show at the Upstairs Artspace in downtown Tryon running from January 27th to March 20th. Stop by the gallery to enjoy the show, “Fine Art Ramblers”, and to pick out your favorite heart to bid on.
An Opening Reception will be held Friday, January 27th from 5-8 pm
49 South Trade Street / Tryon, NC 28782 / 828-859-2828
Hours: Tues – Sat 11 to 5 / Sun 1 to 4
An additional BBBS Fundraiser of note …
BBBS will be auctioning a very special instrument from Lichty Guitars, a hand painted handcrafted ukulele. While we do not have all the details yet, we can say that in 2012 you will have an opportunity to bid on this beautiful instrument, built by Jay Lichty with artwork by Clark Hipolito, while supporting a great organization.
