Fundraiser benefits Burlington kids, birds

Posted: Updated:

A fundraiser in Burlington Wednesday night will benefit both a nonprofit organization and the bird population of greater Burlington.

The architects and interior designers at TruexCullins are putting their skills to work on a smaller scale with elaborate birdhouses. They're being built and sold to help raise money for the city's King Street Center. The Center relies on fundraisers like this, even if you might think they're for the birds.

"It is vital to what we do, it keeps our doors open, our lights on, it allows us to offer dynamic and creative programming to the children and families who stream through our doors every day," said Vicky Smith of the King Street Center.

"Tonight we are having a big party and it is going to be a silent auction, so hopefully we raise a lot of money," said Lee Grutchfield of TruexCullins.

The silent auction continues until Dec. 18. Money raised will go toward King Street Center's future expansion plans.
