July 4 silent auction to be held on Bristol Green
BRISTOL — Along with all the other July 4 activities in Bristol this year, 5-Town Friends of the Arts are holding a silent auction on the green. The auction will feature an large array of items and original art. An added attraction is the “Chair-ity” part of the silent auction — six local artists have painted chairs, all works of art. It takes place all day with bids closing at 2 p.m.
5-Town Friends of the Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of Bristol, Lincoln, New Haven, Monkton, and Starksboro, area residents by providing opportunities for all community members to participate in and appreciate the arts and cultural heritage of our region.
All proceeds from the silent auction, along with annual donations to 5-TFA, support scholarships for three Mount Abraham Union High School seniors who plan to pursue the arts in college, community grants, an instrument rental and group lessons program, arts and cultural education programs, and special events for the community. In addition, these efforts support 5-TFA’s affiliates, Art on Main and the Bristol Historical Society.
Get ready to bid.
