On Saturday, March 15, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. the Fund for Mitchell County will sponsor a St. Patrick’s Day Event at The Pizza Shop in Spruce Pine. The event will feature music, food, a silent auction, children’s activities, and a chance to win a grand prize. The cost to attend is $12 for adults and $7 for children 8 and under. Pizza, lemonade, and a cupcake, (all green) are included in the admission price.
Patrick and Cathy Sky will entertain with the Music of Ireland: Reels, Jigs, and Hornpipes played on the fiddle and the Irish Uilleann pipe. Their show is a mix of old traditional, Irish instrumentals. Noted for their warm rapport with their audiences, the Skys bring to the stage over thirty years of performing experience.
The silent auction will feature original crafts, services, and items, mostly green, contributed by local businesses to benefit the Fund for Mitchell County, which gives grants to area nonprofits. A special feature this year will be a drawing for a grand prize of jewelry. An art activity is planned for children who attend. Reservations are recommended at 765-2652.
