The Bonifas Fine Arts Center held their annual Volunteer Appreciation Brunch Wednesday morning. This year, over 200 invitations were sent out to volunteers.
From 10 a.m.-2 p.m., volunteers were able to relax, select a small gift of appreciation, enjoy a meal, and sip on a Bloody Mary or two.
Events Coordinator, Cindy Bender, explains how important volunteers are to the art center.
"We couldn't do hardly any of the things that we do because the artsâ?? funding has been cut all over the place,â?? explained Bender. â??And we really need to have volunteers to come down here and spread the word about what's happening down here."
The Art Time Achievement was given to Barb Lindstrom, and Phyllis Fleury received the Volunteer of the Year award.
