Aprons created by artists and accompanying items go on the auction block Thursday
to benefit Our House
when the 7th annual "Tie One On"
benefit kicks off at 6 p.m. at the Pavilion in the Park. The live auction starts at 7:45 p.m.; there's a silent auction as well.
Our House is a shelter for the working poor. The tickets to the auction are $55, an amount that pays for one of the following, according to Our House:
*one week of shelter for an adult
*one week of adult basic education and job training
*one week of Our House's after-school program for one homeless youth
*one week of licensed, curriculum-based child care for a homeless child
The beauty of the Internet means I can provide the long list of names of all who have contributed to the auction, and here it is:
Catherine Burton's "Hunting"
Susie Jacoby stepped away from the apron theme.
Doug Norton's River Market apron
Emily Wood's "Beach Getaway"
Mary Lynn Nelson
