TFAC fundraiser kicks off Christmas season

Published 6:57pm Thursday, December 6, 2012

Guests at Tryon Fine Arts Center’s annual Christmas fundraiser kicked off the Christmas season in British style.

Supporters gathered in the TFAC lobby, which is decorated like a British pub with a full bar and back bar and other furnishings loaned by Architectural Warehouse.

Guests were greeted at the door with carolers from the CooperRiis community and a cup of spiced tea. More than 100 silent auction items were donated to the event.

All proceeds go to the operations of the Tryon Fine Arts Center.

The “pub” is on display through the season events at TFAC and is open for viewing. (photo submitted by Marianne Carruth)
