Big Muddy Art - Benefit Auction March 14, 2019

Big Muddy Art AuctionFulton artist Jane Mudd

We had a fun and successful auction. 145 people attended - more than 100 more than our last auction! Auctioneer John Harrison from the Callaway Livestock Auction led the bidding, and he rocked it! 

All but two pieces met their minimum bid and most received as much or more than their retail value. That feels good for everyone. 

We had fantastic food donated by Tellers, Addison's, Coley's, HyVee and several of our dear friends. 

Thanks to the generous donations of our artist friends, we raised $8,000 for Missouri River Relief programs. Thank you to Orr Street Studios for donating the space, and for all the volunteers and art lovers that made it possible!

Wild & Scenic Film Festival 2019

Sunday, Feb 10 at The Blue Note, Columbia, MO

We filled The Blue Note with 486 of our closest friends, and had a wonderful afternoon enjoying films and each other at our 9th Annual year of hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. This one followed the usual pattern, which is waking up Sunday morning to an apocalyptic forecast, taking a deep breath, and realizing that we can do this! We delayed the fest for one hour to give the morning's ice a chance to melt and still packed the place!

Our thanks to everyone that braved the weather to come. Thank you to our long list of Silent Auction donors and purchasers. Thank you to all the amazing bakers who shared your bake sale treats. Thank you to our dedicated sponsors (listed on the right) for making this event into a much needed fundraiser. Thank you to Tim Pilcher and Monica Lord for sharing your beautiful music. Thank you to the Blue Note for being such excellent hosts. 

And our deepest gratitude to our volunteer crew who worked so hard to pull this event together with a smile.
