On April 1, 2017 GCCA will celebrate its work serving the arts in Greene, Columbia and Schoharie counties at the 29th Annual Beaux Arts Ball held at The Copper Tree Restaurant at Hunter Mountain. This annual affair, Masked Ball and Black Tie Bistro, is known to so many as “THE party of the year!”
Now celebrating our 41st year of service to the arts, our past accomplishments have been defined by you, and we attribute our relevance to your support. Our artists, donors and friends are critical to our success, and we are very, very grateful!
The silent auction is vital to the evening’s fund raising success. Below is a preview of auction items and auction donors’ list. !
To show our appreciation to artists participating in the silent auction, we randomly selected two artists who each received two complimentary tickets to the 29th Annual Beaux Arts Ball. THANK YOU to all of our generous donors!!
Here is a preview of 2017 Ball Silent Auction. Enjoy!
