The biggest fundraiser of the year for Cultural Crossroads is fast approaching with only a few weeks left to purchase tickets for the annual event.
Auction items for the Art on 80 event, set for 6 p.m., Saturday, April 9, are still being accepted at The Farm, located at the corner of Talton Street and Highway 80 East, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays in March.
Tickets are $25 each or $250 for a reserved table of eight and can be purchased at The Farm or at Citizens National Bank’s drive-through on Homer Road. Citizens National Bank is again this year’s title sponsor. Tickets can also be purchased from Rachel Harrington by calling 318-773-7268 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ticket purchase includes food, drinks and music. Valet parking will be available.
A silent auction will run from 6 until 8 p.m. and the live auction begins at 8 p.m.
One of the auction items include George Rodrigue’s “A Number One Tiger Fan” silkscreen print. Other items accepted include gift cards to area stores and restaurants, jewelry, cookbooks, fishing gear and more. Some of the artwork donated in the past included stained glass to “upcycled” furniture.
“We can pair items together to make a really nice package,” Harrington said. “No donation is too small.”
All items donated for the auction are tax deductible.
