Bids to close on BBBS’ Have a HeArt fundraiser Saturday

The eighth annual Have a HeArt for Big Brothers Big Sisters silent auction at the Upstairs Artspace in Tryon will conclude with a closing bids reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Refreshments will be served.

Nearly 70 artists contributed more than 100 pieces in a variety of media for this fundraiser to support the BBBS mentoring programs for area youth. To honor the generosity and intention of these artists, visitors are encouraged to visit the Upstairs gallery and place bids for the opportunity to win a unique heArt for one’s own collection or just in time for a Valentine’s Day gift.

HeArts may be viewed online at the BBBS Polk Facebook page. Those interested in learning more may call 828-859-9230 or email
