Niswonger Center hosts the Festival of Trees10:02 am | November 14, 2012
Niswonger Performing Arts Center is hosting the Festival of Trees through Nov. 21, a fundraiser to benefit a local food bank and the center.
Sponsors of the silent auction event include Greeneville’s Wellington Place Assisted Living and NPAC. There will be no admission for viewing the trees and decorations. Individuals are invited to bring canned goods for the local food bank.
Through noon, Wednesday, Nov. 21, decorated trees, wreaths, a swag, quilts and centerpieces will be on display throughout the lobby and mezzanine of NPAC. Each of the entries is marked with the name of the business or individual sponsoring the item, an item number and the theme.
Regular hours for bidding are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If there is an event at NPAC after hours, persons may bid on the items.
Individuals are welcome to offer silent bids on the items, either on a table that is located next to the item, or on the NPAC website, www. greenevillenpac.com.
Anyone wishing to place bids must register in person at NPAC in order to get his or her “bidding” number. All bidders have to do is provide name, address and contact phone number, in order to get their “number.” The reason for using the “number” for bidders is to protect the privacy of the bidders.
For those who do not wish to come to NPAC daily to bid, it will be possible to go on the website, www. greenevillenpac.com, monitor the bidding process and place your bid or bids. The bids will be posted daily.
Monies realized from the event will be divided between the local Food Bank and NPAC.
For more information, call the NPAC Box Office at 638-1679. Box Office hours are 11:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. NPAC is located at 212 Tusculum Blvd., next to Greeneville High School.
