37 Reasons to attend the Cotton Ketchie Arts Festival: August 17th and 18th 2007

You could come because there are going to be over 40 of North Carolina’s top artists selling everything from oil paintings to gorgeous turned-wood pieces that would light up anyones home.

You could come to MEET these artists and even commission someone like William Sundberg to paint a special remembrance of a favorite classic car, boat or motorcycle.

You could come to the Friday Evening Charity Gala and bid on over 40 donated pieces of art in our silent or live auction and enjoy a delicious catered buffet dinner by Nancy Brody, Shelton Vineyards Wine and music by Night Shift. Only 350 tickets are sold to this special evening and we sell out every year!

You could come and bring your children so that they can enjoy the art and the many children’s activities.

You could come to say hi to me as I will be there Friday evening and all day Saturday!

You could come to see “Cotton” Ketchie’s newest giclee release Mountain Grandeur and even buy a $5 raffle ticket or two in hopes of winning this beautiful piece of art!

But, I hope you will come to help us remember the 37 children that died last year in North Carolina as a result of child abuse. All of the proceeds received by the Mooresville/Lake Norman Exchange Club from this event will benefit the Exchange/SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now)/ Child and Parenting Centers of Iredell County.

We had over 1600 reported cases of child abuse in Iredell County last year. So please, come to enjoy the art knowing that you are making a difference in our own community. If you are not able to come but would like to make a donation please drop me a quick email and I will send you the details. And, of course, I have tickets to the Evening Gala…first come, first served!
