Create Buckhannon to host Lunch on the Lawn event

Create Buckhannon will be holding their annual Lunch on the Lawn and Silent Auction in conjunction with Buckhannon Community Theatre’s Production of “Into the Woods” on July 21 on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College.

The silent auction will be open for bids on opening night of “Into the Woods,” which is July 17, and will close bids out at the end of intermission of the Sunday matinee on July 21. We have many fantastic items up for bid, so feel free to stop in during any performance to offer a bid.

But for the kid at heart, we have a collection of Star Wars vintage memorabilia, including trading cards, comics and figures.

The Lunch on the Lawn will take place on Sunday, July 21 at 12:30 p.m. This event includes lunch catered by Aladdin Food Management on the lawn of Agnes Howard Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan College with reserved seats at the Sunday matinee performance of “Into the Woods.” Tickets are $50 for adults and $40 for children.
