The Upshur County Arts Alliance is asking organizations and individuals to again participate in its fourth annual Decorated Tree Auction, the proceeds of which benefit arts programming throughout the county.
Trees and wreaths are available from Arts Alliance members and can be obtained by calling Sandra Presar at 304-472-6072 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those wishing to decorate a tree or wreath and then donate it for the auction can offer a traditional arrangement or be as creative as they can be. Buyers will then have the chance to obtain a unique decoration for their homes in a silent auction.
The donations should be brought to the First Community Bank between 9 a.m. and noon Nov. 26 so the item can be registered for the auction. The decorations will be on display at the bank through Dec. 4, and they will feature the name of the person or organization that decorated it.
The silent auction will run through noon Dec. 4. Bidders can drop off their bids during normal banking hours. Those not present at the time the winning bids are announced will be notified by telephone.
