MSA Attends Jingle Bell Bash
The United Arts Council of Catawba County recently held the 2014 Jingle Bell BASH (Benefitting Arts, Science, and History) at the Lake Hickory Country Club, and several Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. (MSA) employees were in attendance. More than 20 restaurants and caterers donated a variety of delicious food to enjoy at the event. By purchasing a ticket, participants had the opportunity to win cash prizes starting from $500 up to the grand prize of $15,000! A silent auction was also held where attendees could bid on items. All proceeds went to benefit the United Arts Council.
MSA also showed their support by volunteering to help with the night's event. Walter Gragg was a volunteer at the clerks' table where he, along with other clerks, helped draw ticket numbers. Justin Knight controlled the electronic number board which projected the raffle numbers.
After purchasing many Jingle Bell Bash tickets over a number of years, MSA finally hit a winning number, winning 3rd place and $1,500!
MSA is a supporter of the local arts community and encourages everyone to get involved with community events like this. In fact, Vickie Martin, Managing Partner, serves on the Board of the United Arts Council and helps make this fundraising event a success!
