ABOUT

YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND AUCTION

JUNE 27 2013 AT GREEN HILL

You’ve Got a Friend Auction was one of those great “shower” moments, where almost all my great thinking happens. I was pondering, “what event would support Green Hill, be a ton of fun, be really different, and not too hard to put together?” And, then I thought of James Taylor… don’t ask me why, but I did. Ergo, You’ve Got a Friend…. The idea is simple, auction "friend-time" to spend time with "friends" who will show you how to do something new, create a wonderful experience, or will lead you on a fun adventure...i.e., things friends do for other friends. All of this in support of Green Hill and all the great things that happen here... Five great exhibitions each year, including Winter Show Family Night in ArtQuest- open 5-7 PM each Wednesday and it is FREE ADMISSION Free access to The Gallery every single day! Read, Yellow and Blue, a program for under-served pre-school age children which offers age-appropriate enriched cultural arts curriculum that supports school readiness. And so much more! So, thanks to my 66 Friends who will quickly become your friends, and thanks to all who attend our first You’ve Got a Friend Auction! Best, Laura
