The Pacific Grove Downtown Business Improvement District in partnership with the Pacific Grove Art Center would like to invite the public to a special event. Monarch Memories Silent Auction. Preview bidding will begin on Thursday, April 2nd from noon until 5 p.m. The final bidding and festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 3rd. Bidding will end at approximately 8 pm.
“The Monarch Memories Silent Auction will feature the hand-painted monarch butterflies that were displayed throughout Downtown Pacific Grove during the Monarch’s Wintering Season. The proceeds of the event will benefit the non-profit Pacific Grove Art Center. There is no charge to attend.
“This event is the culmination of a wonderful community art project,” commented B.I.D. Chairman and project head Tom McMahon. “Allowing the public the chance to bid on these beautiful works of art is a fantastic opportunity.”
Forty one of the hand painted and decorated butterflies will be displayed and will be available to the highest bidder during a silent auction. In addition, awards, based on voting by residents and visitors, will be given to the butterflies with the third and second place entries. A special Mayor’s Trophy will be awarded to the butterfly that received the highest number of votes.
“The Pacific Grove Art Center is honored to host and to be the beneficiary of this event,” stated Teresa Brown, Pacific Grove Art Center’s Executive Director. “The community has truly come together to make this entire project possible!”
The Monarch Memories Silent Auction will also feature light appetizers, refreshments, and music by Michael Martinez. Beer and wine will also be sold along with special posters featuring all 41 butterflies.#monarchmemories. The hand-painted Monarchs were recently displayed in Downtown Pacific Grove.
