‘Art Takes You Places’ during Artworks 2017 Gala

Submitted to the Pioneer
BIG RAPIDS — Anyone who dreams of going places should show up on May 12 at the Roben-Hood Airport hangar and be ready for transport in the “trip” that awaits during the Artworks 2017 Gala.

Themed “Art Takes You Places,” the evening will be full of surprises for people supporting the arts in the community. Pere Marquette Catering will provide the meal and the Patron of Arts award will be presented during the evening.

Pieces by Artworks artists will be sold in both live and silent auctions, as will “experiences” donated by community supporters. First prize in the raffle will be a $2,500 travel voucher from Travel with Ease, the second prize will be a flight over Mecosta County with the Bandstras and third prize will be a cruise on Chippewa Lake with Jane and Bill Torry.

For more information, contact Artworks at (231) 796-2420 or online at artworksinbigrapids.org. Event tickets also can be purchased at Artwork or on Eventbrite.
