Chair-ries Jubilee slated for August
The 22nd annual Chair-ries Jubilee benefit for arts programs in our local schools will have a different look this year.
Organizers are having to “pivot” their event planning to “allow all of our great supporters to support the Arts in Education programs funded through this annual fundraiser.”
The event, which was originally slated for April, will now be held over two days instead of just one.
On Wednesday and Thursday Aug. 19 and 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., supporters will be invited to visit the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce office at 225 Keith St. S.W. and bid on their favorite items. Thursday evening, volunteers will notify winning bidders and have them pick up their items on Friday, Aug. 21, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The annual benefit will have a variety of locally-designed art and furniture pieces available to view and buy via silent auction.
“This year’s event will feature a glimpse at life as seen through the eyes of area artists in support of the ‘What’s YOUR Vision’ theme,” said Nancy Casson, Chair-ries Jubilee Committee Chair.
Chair-ries Jubilee is a project of the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce and is but one way the council serves as an arts education advocate and a means for promoting local artists.
The Allied Arts Council has been committed over the past 26 years to promoting the local arts community by offering quality arts programming and providing arts in education activities to local schools.
“Studies have proven that investing in arts education will pay significant dividends for students,” Casson said. “We are grateful that Cleveland and Bradley County residents respond well to this event every year.”
No advance tickets are necessary for this year’s Chair-ries Jubilee. However, each person must have a confirmed RSVP to attend.
