GREENSBORO, N.C. — Gates created or transformed by local artists will be auctioned May 3 at a benefit for HealthServe Ministry in Greensboro.
The group’s fifth annual fundraiser, to be held at Kress Terrace downtown, will feature five gates to be sold at a live auction, and 10 others to be sold at a silent auction.
The auction, which in past years has featured “tablescapes” created by local artists, this year turned to gates in recognition of the city’s nickname, The Gate City, which dates to 1891, when 60 trains a day arrived and departed in Greensboro.
HealthServe, which hopes to net $31,000 from the auction, operates two clinics that last year provided medical and dental care for more than 8,000 people and filled more than 48,500 prescriptions.
HealthServe also will hold its second annual Guilford County Society of Pharmacists golf tournament July 11 in Bryan Park.
