Gallery fundraiser successful
The increasingly popular Box Canyon Bluegrass Band provided the music for the first annual Art Adventure Gallery fundraising dinner held at the Macy Ranch north of Madras on the evening of Sept. 10.
Marilyn, Gregg, Doug, and Rebecca Macy, as well as some of their children and grandchildren, worked hard to ready the setting for the Tate and Tate-catered dinner. The Bend-based 10 Barrel Brewing Company donated the beer, and Doug Macy donated the wine.
The weather was perfect for the event, and donations as well as ticket sales will provide a healthy basis for the gallery's upcoming debt to the city for its beautification grant.
Board chairman Paula Carlson spearheaded the event, assisted by board members Sharon and Tom Miller, Joyce Edgmon, Wanda Buslach, Dave Jordan, Barbara Williams, and Irene Conroy.
Canopies for the event were provided by Jim and Deanna Epley, Rob Cloud, Ruth Traut, and Saturday Market.
