A festive evening planned for annual JCAC gala

The Jackson County Arts Council’s annual Members Gala will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17, at Riverwood Shops in Dillsboro.

In addition to food and beverages, Western Carolina University’s gamelan and woodwind trio, “Six Foot Three,” and Jay Coward’s bluegrass group, Pirates of the Tuckaseegee, will perform.

Stephen Wohlrab and Eliot Wadopian will wrap up the evening with jazz, as they have for four of the last five years. Additionally, there will be drawings for door prizes.

The Gala is a way to give thanks to Jackson County Arts Council members for their support throughout the year. Another important function of the Gala is to help increase membership. The Gala is free to all members, with the exception of a $5 reservation fee. Memberships range from $25 for single, $45 for family, $60 for patron and $100 or more for sponsor.
