Butteville Elementary School is holding its annual Art Auction and Wine Tasting Event on Saturday, April 6 at 5:30 p.m. at Butteville’s Inspiration Theater. The event is a fundraiser to support the school’s art and music programs.

The art auction and wine tasting is put on each year by the Butteville PTO – a non-profit organization committed to offering the students at Butteville the opportunity to include art and music programs as part of their academic experience.

The fundraiser will include a live auction, silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, live music and raffle drawings. Thanks to the generosity of many citizens, last year the event raised over $20,000, making it possible for Butteville to continue offering arts and music programs to its students. Programs funded by the event include artist in residency week, band, strings, performing arts, fine arts, dance, Spanish, and sewing

The Butteville PTO noted, “Donations of any form are greatly appreciated. If you would like to sponsor our event with a monetary donation, we will feature your business name on our event publications. If your business has a product or service that you are willing to donate, please include any information you can, so that we can display it alongside your donation in our silent auction.

“If you are a local business and need one of our PTO members to pick up a donation, please let us know. Donations are tax deductible. Please do not hesitate to call or email us with any questions you may have. Donations can also be mailed to the address below. We thank you in advance for your support.”

The themes of this year’s silent auction baskets include family fun night, kitchen, outdoor enthusiast, gardening and date night.

Tickets are available at the Butteville Elementary office for $25 each or $45 per couple. Those who purchase their tickets before April 1 will receive five free raffle tickets.
