The Big Day of Giving is scheduled for Thursday, May 4th! We love to hear from our donors and members on this day, when we participate in this three-county regional 24 hours of giving to the organizations that we love.

Why do you support the Pence? Is it because the Pence is a great place to see interesting works of art? Is it because of all that we do for children and youth? If you have enjoyed visiting the Pence this year, consider making a donation of any size to the Pence at www.bigdayofgiving.org.  All donations are tax-deductible, will be matched to a percentage, and can help us win great prizes!

ART AUCTION
The Art Auction is an annual event featuring over 120 artworks in a 2-3 week preview, culminating in a Gala event. Bidding takes place in silent and live auction forums during the event, and bidders may sample area cuisine by local restaurants, and enjoy complementary wine and desserts, as well as live music. This is a great opportunity to add to your art collection, or to start one! Artists vary from year to year, but may include Wayne Thiebaud, Del Almeida, Susan Shelton, Donna Billick, and Richard Shaw. This exhibit takes place late August to mid-September, and the event is typically the 3rd Saturday in September.

TRASH TO TREASURES
Trash to Treasures is our annual sidewalk sale occuring mid-summer. Drop by to find an assortment of goodies ranging from fine art, posters, frames, furniture, collectables, linens, and vintage items, all donated by the public to help support the Pence. Please stay tuned for more information on this year's Trash to Treasures, coming soon!


GARDEN TOUR
For over 25 years, the Pence's Garden Tour has provided the public with the opportunity to view 8-10 beautiful gardens. Centered in the town of Davis, these gardens are chosen for their diversity, overall design, and interesting use of plants. Visitors in the past have enjoyed Japanese gardens, art-filled yards, and xeriscapes filled with native grasses. This self-guided Tour is a ticketed event, taking place on the 1st Sunday in May. Tickets are sold at the Pence, among other locations, and include access to the gardens, homemade refreshments, and bidding in the silent auction area.
