The Rotary Club of Blowing Rock will host its 7th Annual Charity Auction to be held beginning at 3 p.m. on Aug. 17 at the American Legion Hall on Wallingford Street in Blowing Rock. The previous auctions have raised nearly $170,000, all of which goes to charities of the High Country.
This year’s signature piece is “Twilight Oak” a 30”x48” oil on canvas by Hickory artist, Stephen Brooks.

The event will be both a live auction and silent auction consisting of such items as as restaurant gift cards, a handmade cherry wood table, black walnut framed mirrors, numerous works of art, weekend ski condo, golf outings and a year’s supply of Kilwins ice cream.
The silent auction starts at 3 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m. The live auction begins at 5 p.m. Food and refreshments will be served. For more information, please call (828) 295-7851.
