Chamber to raise funds with art auction at college

A benefit art auction for the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce will be held Saturday, Sept. 13, in the Anne Hart Raymond Building at Midway College. The art preview will begin at 6 p.m. and the auction will start at 7.

More than 200 works of art "by nationally and internationally recognized artists will be auctioned, as well as three pieces donated by local artists, galleries, and community members," the chamber said in a press release. "Beginning bids will be below retail gallery prices. . . . A magnificent piece of art will be raffled off the night of the auction."

Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres donated by chamber members who are helping sponsor the event will be served.  Admission is $5 in advance or $10 at the door. For more information contact Chamber Executive Director Don Vizi at woodforddirector@gmail.com.
