The 29th annual “An Evening With the Arts” fundraising dinner and silent auction is set for March 7 at the Fallon Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Mardi Gras,” and appropriate attire is encouraged but not required.
This event, which raises funds to help insure the continue delivery of 2015–2016 Churchill Arts Council programs and activities, features a wide range of artwork, weekend getaways and other eclectic items donated by local and regional artists and businesses. It’s a great chance to get a little something for yourself and support CAC.
One of the featured items in the auction will be local artist Robert Petersen’s large format photograph of the Oats Park Art Center.
Petersen will also set up a photo booth at the event where attendees can have their photograph taken to commemorate the occasion.
Other artists who will have artwork in the auction include Mary Ann Bonjorni, Jack Fulton, Dayna Galetti, Larry Neel, Marie Nygren, Kevin and Jaime Sammons, Michael Sarich, Joann Serpa and many others.
The silent auction begins at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. The dinner will be catered by the Slanted Porch, which was named one of the “Ten Best Restaurants in Nevada” by The Cultural Trip.
The menu includes house-made focaccia, mixed green salad, Yukon gold potatoes, herb crusted beef tenderloin with red wine demi-glace, half lobster tail and Bananas Foster. An entrée of vegetarian mushroom ravioli will also be available.
Admission to the event is $70 per person and includes dinner, wine, admission to the auction and a copy of the catalog. For $80 per person you receive all of the above plus $20 worth of raffle tickets.
There are still a few seats available for this social event of the season and if you haven’t gotten yours, you can call Churchill Arts at 775-423-1440 to reserve your tickets.
