JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. – Masterpiece Mingle features barbecue, bluegrass, cocktails and the chance to take home an art piece from a local artist 7-9 p.m. March 16 at the McKinney Center in Jonesborough.
At the fundraising event, Scott Wild, an American singer/songwriter specializing in vintage folk rock, will be performing along with the Sulphur Spring String Dippers, bringing along their old-timey, traditional sound.
A menu of light refreshments from the Catering Company includes barbecue chicken sliders, sweet and sour meatballs, spinach artichoke dip and spanakopita. Sweet biscuits from Maple Street Biscuit Company will also be available along with a Tennessee Hills Distillery cash bar.
The funds from Masterpiece Mingle will go to the McKinney Center’s Scholarship program, which allows children, whose families struggle financially, to take a class at the Center for free.
The quality of life of a community is largely determined by the entertainment and educational opportunities, as well as the cultural activities available. By creating opportunities for youth and adults to nurture and stimulate their creative minds through the performing arts and special events in the community, Jonesborough is creating an exciting community in which to live and work.
The McKinney Center has a goal of raising $6,000 for their scholarship fund this year. They have already fundraised 40% of this goal through their Go Fund Me campaign.
Masterpiece Mingle tickets are $25 until March 3 then are $35.
