Foothills Duplicate Bridge Club members (left to right) Charlotte Lindsey, Kathe Burklow, Betsy Carr and Marily Williams work on the final plans for the “Spring Soiree,” a fundraiser for the Tryon Youth Center sponsored by the club. The event will be held on Friday, May 18 at 5:30 p.m. at the youth center, located at 2969 Hwy. 176 West. The deadline to buy tickets for the benefit is Tuesday, May 15. The evening will include cocktails and appetizers, an Italian feast catered by La Bella Tavola, silent and live auctions between 5:30 and 7 p.m., and music by both John Memory on the guitar and the Sue Wilson group. All cash contributions (except the entry fee) will be matched up to $10,000 by an anonymous donor and are 100-percent tax deductible. The youth center, which serves the community as a whole, now needs major repairs and that is the reason for this fundraiser. For tickets or to make a contribution to Tryon Youth Center, please call event chairman Sherrill Wingo at 828-817-1668. For more general information email (photo submitted by Barbara Clegg)
