Over the next six weeks, the Middleburg Garden Club will be auctioning off 33 hand-painted foxes seen leaping on the fences around the United Methodist Church and Safeway.
The fundraiser involves individuals, organizations and businesses sponsoring a fox and then selecting artists to paint them. The final products have been on street-side exhibit since April 1. Through May 18 (at 6 p.m.) residents can place online bids for their favorite.
Each fox is a unique art piece reflecting the spirit of the community. The foxes are 4 feet long and made from a composite material that designed for display indoors or outdoors. Bids may be made at biddingforgood.com (search for Middleburg Garden Club) or at the Foxes on the Fence Facebook page.
Voting also is open for the People’s Choice award.
Winning bidders will be responsible for picking up the art or arranging shipping by June 1 through Middleburg Garden Club organizer firstname.lastname@example.org.
