2018 Tree Display and Auction image banner

The Center is proud to once again display — and auction — more than a dozen beautifully decorated trees this holiday season.

Money raised from this annual event will go to the Center’s Tom Jones Tuition Assistance Fund.  This fund was established to assure that the arts remain accessible to all individuals within the community regardless of their ability to pay.  Adults and children from low income families are able to attend classes or Summer Camps thanks, in part, to the generous donations made to this fund.

Tree bidding ends December 16 at 6 pm.

The T.W.C.C. is a chapter of the Suncoast Wood Carvers Club in Seminole, Fl. The Tampa chapter was formed in March, 2008 to provide residents in the Tampa area a place to meet and carve one evening a week throughout the year. Their goal is to increase the awareness of wood whittling. You do not need experience, just come by for a visit and we’ll talk or bring your project and sit and whittle for awhile.
