What: A sock hop-themed fundraising event
When: November 14th, 7:00 PM
Where: Right here and on our Facebook page
This year’s event features raffles, a costume contest, and a dance tutorial, plus a special performance by one of our scholarship recipients. For the safety of our community, this will be an entirely virtual event! Rest assured that we still intend to shake, rattle, and roll the night away.
Dig out your poodle skirts…
For the costume contest! The night of the virtual event, email us a photo of you in your 50s threads or tag us in your photo on Facebook for the chance to win. Not going to be available that night? No worries! Email or tag us anytime in the week preceding the auction for consideration.
Get your feet tapping…
With our playlist of 50s hits! Get ready to shake, rattle, and roll the night away with these songs designed to get your head bopping and your hips swaying.

Each fall, the Thornapple Arts Council hosts an Auction for the Arts, a themed fundraising event incorporating silent auctions, a live auction, music, drinks, and dancing into a night of fun and giving back. Area businesses, artisans, and individuals donate their wares and creativity to help make this event possible. All proceeds benefit the Financial Assistance Program and other TAC programming in Barry County.
