Enjoy a night at the Belton Museum


Tickets are available now for the Belton Area Museum Association’s upcoming fundraiser Night for the Museum. The event will be held from 6:30 -9:30 PM on Thursday, May 30, at the historic Belton Train Depot.

“This silent/live auction should prove to be fun and competitive with a great payoff in the end since so many wonderful items will be up for bid,” said Events Committee Chairman Paula Blake.

Included in the bidding will be a signed artist proof of the 10th hole at Augusta National Golf Course painted by Wayland Moore, a La Z Boy recliner donated by Maynard’s, tickets to the Masters, weekend getaways to a Beech Mountain condo and the Evergreen Inn at Stone Mountain, dining packages, jewelry, Clemson and Carolina game day tickets with tailgating packages, antiques, and services such as salon/spa treatments, auto detailing, housecleaning, and sporting/music lessons. Items of interest will be included in both the silent and live auction bidding. An updated list of auction items will be available at www.beltonsc.com.

Ticket outlets in Belton include the Historic Belton Train Depot, News Chronicle office, Clinkscales Drugs, Maynard’s Home Furnishings and Nancy’s Fancies. Other locations to pick up tickets are The Cottage Garden in Honea Path and 313 Gallery in Anderson. Tickets are $20 each and include two complimentary drink tickets, heavy hors d’oeuvres, bidding card, and lots of fun competition among bidders.

Proceeds benefit the Belton Area Museum Association and its programs.
