There will be a luncheon featuring foods from the Holy Lands included in the $10 ticket, and also the opportunity to bid on donated art by WNC artists, including five stained glass crosses. 

All proceeds go to the scholarship committee, which recently awarded a $10,000 scholarship to a student attending USC-Upstate, and which takes applications from any university/college or vocational school bound student from Polk County.
