NCOC to hold silent auction fund raiser; local artists to be highlighted

WEVERTOWN - To allow for expanded social health programming, the North Country Outreach Center will hold a silent auction fund raiser June 28 at the Fern Lodge on Friends Lake.

"It will be a very elegant affair," NCOC event organizer Susan Murante said. "Dozens of local and regional artists, ranging from paintings to jewelry, will be highlighted."

Murante said the proceeds from the event will be used to fund a parenting class in addition to the center's dozens of other programs.

Numerous paintings and photos of the Adirondack wilderness will be available from artists and photographers.

"I am so impressed with how much people wanted to donate to the auction," Murante said. "It seems in times like this, people become so giving."

Murante said that tickets will cost $25 a person or $45 for a couple. Wine and refreshments will be provided throughout the event.

"It is one of the first significant fund raisers we have done at the center," she said. "It has turned into a big deal."

More than 30 artists will be represented, with a wide range of aesthetic appeal including the works of Dr. Dan Way, Woody and Elise Widlund and Judy Brown.

The event will run from 2-4 p.m. on June 28. Tickets are available at Andie's Restaurant or the Hudson River Trading Company in North Creek.
