Items for both the silent and live auctions have been donated by members of the bridge club and others and will be on display at Tryon Youth Center prior to the event on Thursday, May 10 and Friday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sherril Wingo, chairman of the fundraiser, said, “We want everyone to know that all cash contributions (except entry tickets) raised during this benefit will be matched up to $10,000 by an anonymous donor and are 100-percent tax deductible, so we hope the community will be generous. And if you can’t come to the party, your entire donation amount will be doubled because of donor support.”

For tickets or to make a contribution to Tryon Youth Center, please call Sherril Wingo at 828-817-1668.  For more general information, email tryonyouthcenter@gmail.com.
