Annual Benefit Auction: Catamount’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the Annual Benefit Auction is hands down the biggest party in town. Featuring live and silent auctions, a magician, live music, hot appetizers, desserts, beer and wine, this gala event brings a sell-out crowd to the arts center every November.
Auction items are donated from local artists, craftspeople, businesses, and individuals, and include jewelry, kayaks, restaurant gift certificates, African safaris, theater trips, golf lessons, European vacations, hockey tickets, musical instruments, spa packages, fine art, furniture, and more.
Car Raffles: The winter All Wheel for the Arts Car Raffle and the Summer Solstice Tractor Raffle have raised over $350,000 for Catamount Arts. With help from sponsors St. Jay Subaru, All Around Power, and Wilkins Harley-Davidson, Catamount has given away seven cars and three tractors since 2009.
Proceeds from these important Catamount fundraisers support diverse world-class performing arts programming, year-round arts education for children, and countless opportunities to integrate arts and culture into the daily life of Vermont and New Hampshire communities.
