Auction to be held for Mentor's Project

The Crossroads Writers Conference will be holding a silent and live auction tonight at the Cox Capitol Theatre, 382 Second St., which will support the conference and benefit the Mentor's Project of Bibb County.

The silent auction will go from 7-8:30 p.m., with the live auction following. There will be live music by Demolution and the Macon Guitar Quintet, and a 50-50 raffle at the door.

Tickets are $5. Proceeds from the Crossroads Writers Conference will help establish the Creative Ruckus Academy, an after-school arts education initiative that pairs at-risk youth with professional artists in the community.

The Crossroads Writers Conference will take place Feb. 25-27, 2010.
