Calling all artists, craftsman, architects, students and hobbyists! Will you put your talents into building and donating a bench for our Garden Bench Auction?
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Pioneers Park Nature Center the Friends of PPNC will be pulling out all the stops at our annual Nature’s Market on April 27, 2013! The proceeds from this event provide partial support for school hikes and scholarships for Nature Center camps and preschool.
The live auction is the principal revenue-building event at the market. Typically, the benches raise between $300-$500 apiece.
If you are interested in submitting a design, please send us a sketch and description of your proposal to be approved by Friends of the Nature Center Board by January 15, 2013. You will be informed of the designs that have been selected by January 30, 2013. Benches need to be completed by April 15th. You can make arrangements for us to pick up the bench or you may personally deliver it the Nature Center.
Your name or business will appear on promotional and event materials and will be displayed on your bench. If you have questions please do not hesitate to call Nancy Furman at the Nature Center at 441-8709.
