Letter: Rotary appreciates Taste of Art support

To the editor:

The Rotary Club of Brown County would like to thank the many participants who contributed to the success of our recent Taste of Art Fundraiser at The Seasons Conference Center.

First, we would like to thank all the artists and individuals who provided art for our auction including Patricia Rhoden Bartels, Laura Blackthorn, Kathy Blankenheim, Mark Burkett, Doug & Julie Cauble, Brad Cox, Jay & Ellen Carter, Michael Fulton, the David family, Tim Greatbatch, Ken & Jan Harker, Anabel Hopkins, Patricia Lloyd, Norene Mara, Jeanne McCleish, Chris Newlund, Larry Pejeau, Thom Robinson, Frank Rogoysky and Joyce Sawyer, Martha Sechler, Beverly Teach, James Tracey and William Root. A special thank-you goes out to those who donated artwork to the auction.

Thanks also to the Brown County Democrat and AIM Media Indiana along with White River Broadcasting for their help in getting the information out about the event. Also, thanks to Chateau Thomas Winery, Quaff ON! Brewing Company and Hard Truth Distilling Company for providing the “Taste” part of the event along with advertising. Thanks to the Brown County Art Gallery and Brown County Art Guild for their assistance, and the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau for help with advertising and ticket sales.

And finally, a great big thank-you goes out to all who attended, especially those who purchased art. Without your participation, the event could not happen. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go toward charitable causes, with most of the funding going to scholarships and other youth development for Brown County students.
