Buttercup Run Open House
We’re hosting an open house on Saturday, April 15 from 1 to 3 PM with a new gallery display of work by local artists, curated by the Killdeer Artisans Guild. The open house is being held in conjunction with the Buttercup Run, an annual event with a range of walks and runs to raise money for Arlee schools. The Buttercup Run is a great event for everyone, whether you’re a competitive runner or if you just want a fun walk with your family. The proceeds provide Arlee high school seniors with college scholarships, and help teachers purchase supplies for their classrooms.
We'll be raffling off a special item celebrating the Buttercup Run’s history. Every year the Run has a different t-shirt designed by a local artist. We’re excited to raffle off a quilt made from the Run’s t-shirt designs throughout the years. Other raffle prizes include gift baskets and gift certificates from local merchants. All proceeds will benefit Arlee schools.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy the art display, snacks, beverages, and a chance to win the Buttercup Run quilt and gift baskets and gift certificates. Raffle tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 and are available our office. Tickets can also be purchased and participants can register for the Run’s events online at buttercuprun.org/register.
