Do you want to have some fun and help your community at the same time?
Join us for the celebration and sale of The heARTs of Rutland at the Paramount Theatre on Friday, November 2. Preview of the heARTs and silent auction items is 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., during which time there will be finger food and music, a cash bar, conversation and conviviality.
The auction of the large heARTs starts at 6:30 p.m. with Bob Prozzo as auctioneer. Proceeds go to the people in Rutland County who still need help as a result of tropical storm Irene and to children’s art programs.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the Paramount ( Box Office or online ), Art and Antiques on Center Street, or at the door on Nov. 2.
The heARTs are truly amazing — each one unique and beautifully crafted. You will be able to see each one “up close and personal” for the first time, after they have left their homes somewhere in the area and are together as a heART family.
Please join us for this very special event.
