As part of the 100th birthday celebration of the Glenwood-Brooklyn area as Raleigh’s first planned neighborhood, the Historic Glenwood-Brooklyn Neighborhood Association (HGBNA) will be hosting “Downtown Appetite for Art” on Friday, Oct. 14 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Exploris Museum. The event – cosponsored by Mix 101.5 (WRAL-FM) , Sullivan’s Steakhouse and DowntownRaleigh.com -- will be a charity fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs.

• A silent auction of additional items donated by artists, including wine and food gift baskets, sports memorabilia, gift certificates, sports memorabilia, professional services and jewelry;
• A wine tasting provided by local businesses, with food courtesy of Sullivan’s Steakhouse and other eating establishments; and,
• Musical entertainment by The Connells. There also will be live jazz music.
• Tickets to “Downtown Appetite for Art” cost $35 if purchased by Oct. 3. They can be obtained by visiting HGBNA’s website at www.glenwoodbrooklyn.com. After Oct. 3, tickets are $40 and may be purchased on the website and will be available at the door on the day of the event. A ticket purchase and all other purchases at the event will be considered as tax-deductible contributions to the Boys and Girls Clubs under North Carolina law, according to event organizers. Also, each buyer of a “Downtown Appetite for Art” ticket will receive a free ticket to the Glenwood-Brooklyn Tour of Historic Homes on Dec. 3.
