Butterfly Bridge will host Flutter event Feb. 6By Emily Etheredge Published 4:40pm Monday, February 3, 2014
The fourth annual Flutter 2014 event will be held Feb. 6 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Clanton Conference and Performing Arts Center on the Jefferson State Community College campus.
Jana Zuelzke, Executive Director/Child Forensic Interview Specialist with Butterfly Bridge, Children’s Advocacy Center, said the event will have both a live and silent auction, hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
“We wanted to tweak the event this year,” Zuelzke said. “We are definitely giving it a new face. The event is designed to be a come-right-after-work deal which is why we decided to start at 5:30.”
Zuelzke said a lot of the items featured in the silent auction would be pieces of art from paintings to woodworking, pottery, photography and refinished furniture.
“65-70 percent of the silent auction items are forms of art but you don’t have to be an art lover to come,” Zuelzke said. “The other portion of the silent auction will have items that people would enjoy for Valentine’s Day including spa treatments, jewelry and sports memorabilia.”
Zuelzke said Tommy Glasscock will be doing a live auction and Whistlestop Combo will be playing music during the event.
“It is a mix and mingle event,” Zuelzke said.
The event is one of two fundraisers held each year for Butterfly Bridge Children’s Advocacy Center, which was formerly known as Child Protect.
Butterfly Bridge facilitates a multi-disciplinary approach to handling child abuse cases.
“We rely heavily on the proceeds from these events,” Zuelzke said.
Zuelzke said tickets were still available for the event and could be purchased at the door.
Tickets are $15 per person and $25 per couple.
