The McKinney Center in Jonesborough is opening the door for traditions in allowing the public to obtain high-quality pieces of art that can be passed down. But that’s not all, the event will also entail free refreshments, a cash bar, bluegrass music, a silent auction, as well as a series of surprises throughout the evening.
When you purchase a ticket for this event you will receive a masterpiece created by a local artist. Sulphur Spring String Dippers, bringing along their old-timey, traditional sound will be performing at Masterpiece Mingle as well as Scott Wild, an American singer/songwriter specializing in vintage folk rock. A menu of light refreshments from the Catering Company includes BBQ Chicken Sliders, Sweet & Sour Meatballs, Spinach Artichoke Dip and Spanakopita. Sweet biscuits from Maple Street Biscuit Company will also be available along with a Tennessee Hills Distillery cash bar.
The funds from Masterpiece Mingle will go to the McKinney Center’s Scholarship program for art education instruction offered under Jonesborough’s Mary B. Martin Program for the Arts. The scholarship program allows children, whose families struggle financially, to take a class at the Center at no cost to them.
The quality of life of a community is largely determined by the entertainment and educational opportunities, as well as the cultural activities available. By creating opportunities for youth and adults to nurture and stimulate their creative minds through the performing arts and special events in the community, Jonesborough is creating a more exciting community in which to live and work.
The McKinney Center has a goal of raising $6,000 for their scholarship fund this year. They have already fundraised 45% of this goal through their Go Fund Me campaign and are hoping Masterpiece Mingle can help them to obtain that goal.
Dress for Masterpiece Mingle is casual. Cash and credit cards can be used for the silent auction and cash bar. Masterpiece Mingle tickets are $35. For more information and tickets, call 423.753.1010, Jonesborough.com/tickets or visit the McKinney Center on Facebook.
