2003 Autumn Bacchanal set for Sunday, Oct. 12

The 2003 Autumn Bacchanal is more than a celebration of fine art and craft, wine and gourmet food — it also raises scholarship funds for Tennessee Tech University’s art students.

Bacchanal 2003 is set for Sunday, Oct. 12, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Spankies Restaurant in Cookeville, located just off TTU’s campus at 203 E. 9th St.

The Bacchanal begins with a delectable cocktail buffet and an extensive selection of wines and beers. The live auction of art and fine craft will begin at 2:30 p.m. and will consist of original works donated by TTU and Appalachian Center for Craft art faculty, resident artists, students, alumni and regional artists.

Admission for the event is $25 per person if purchased before Friday, Oct. 8, and $30 at the door. Each guest receives a commemorative wineglass in appreciation for supporting the Bacchanal Scholarships.
