The United Arts Council of Catawba County kicked off the holiday season with their annual Jingle Bell BASH (Benefitting Arts, Science, and History) on December 6, 2021 at the Lake Hickory Country Club. Area restaurants and caterers provided a wide variety of delicious food to enjoy at the event. By purchasing a ticket, participants had the chance to win cash prizes starting from $1,000 up to the grand prize of $10,000! A silent auction was also held where attendees could bid on items. Vickie Martin, currently serving as Treasurer for the United Arts Council, helped with the silent auction by assisting participants with their online bidding. All proceeds benefit the United Arts Council.
Each year, this proves to be a popular event among MSA employees with several in attendance. MSA also showed their support by volunteering to help with the night’s event. Evan Lohrman and Amanda Linder were volunteers at the clerks’ table where they helped draw ticket numbers leading up to the grand prize raffle. Drew Simpson controlled the electronic number board which projected the raffle numbers on a screen for the audience.
