Call for Beaux Arts Ball Silent Auction Donations

There is still plenty of time to donate!

Dear Artists, Donors, and Friends,

On April 7, 2018 GCCA will celebrate spring at the 30th Annual Beaux Arts Ball 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!”

The Beaux Arts Ball is the Arts Council’s primary fund raising event, supporting the many diverse and varied programs GCCA provides throughout the year. We continually strive to keep the arts alive and meaningful in our surrounding area as well as draw attention to the important contribution of the arts in Greene County. Now celebrating our 42nd 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. Please consider donating an original piece of art in any medium, a specialty item or service to our juried silent auction. We hope you will donate your finest pieces or most sought after services in support of your Arts Council. Please feel free to include your resume and/or a business card also for display.

To show our appreciation to artists participating in the silent auction, we will randomly select one artist who will receive two complimentary tickets to the 30th Annual Beaux Arts Ball.
