Catamount Gala and Auction Takes Place This Saturday
The Bennington Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an outstanding arts auction and party on Saturday, July 19, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Vermont catamount has been creatively interpreted by local artists on sculptures that graced streets and lawns in the Bennington area, and now it’s time to celebrate at the Catamount Midsummer Night’s Prowl. This year’s live auction of the over 30 sculptures is a fund raiser for the Cancer Crusaders who work on behalf of local cancer patients and research, and also gives a portion of its proceeds back to the artists. Taking place in beautiful Colgate Park on Route 9 in Bennington, the gala event will include a ‘Taste of Vermont’ by Thyme Tables Catering, live music by the Standard Clams and a cash bar. Tickets, $50, are available now. RSVP now at 802-447-3311 and be sure to visit catamountprowl.com for a preview of the big cats.
