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.
