  • Complimentary hors d’oeuvres;
  • Complimentary wine;
  • Live entertainment;
  • Conversations with their favorite artists; and
  • “Art Bucks” equaling their pre-pledge dollars to spend any time during the show (Friday, Oct. 11, through Sunday, Oct. 13).

What people need to do:

  • Pledge a minimum of $100 they plan to spend at Art in the Park.

To take advantage of this opportunity, call 618-558-0054 or mail to Highland Arts Council, PO Box 33, Highland, IL 62249.
