Diamonds, trips and bears, oh my 

It’s Tabriz XX at the Arkansas Arts Center.

Have a hankering for a diamond necklace and want to help the Arkansas Arts Center, too? Or dying to go look for bears in the wilds of Arkansas? How about a two-year lease on a 2007 Mercedes?

Those items and more will be included in the Fine Arts Club’s Tabriz XX auction coming up March 1 and 3 at the Arts Center. The biennial event has raised more than $4 million for the Arts Center.

Thursday’s opener in the biennial benefit is the casual beer and hot dog night with a silent auction; Saturday night’s event is black tie and will include dining, dancing and a live auction. Tickets for Thursday are $45 per person; Saturday night tickets are $350.

Sissy’s Log Cabin is donating a 10.5 carat platinum channel set diamond necklace for the event, the state Game and Fish Commission is offering the trip to the bear den and Frank Fletcher Mercedes of Joplin, Mo., is offering the Mercedes lease. A sampling of other big items among the 200-plus to be auctioned: A 10-day trip to Kenya donated by Janice and Jim Goodwin; two Capital Hotel suites on New Year’s Eve 2007 donated by Harriet and Warren Stephens, and the painting “White Fish Bay” donated by George Dombek.

The Arts Center will close to the public from Feb. 26-March 6 for the event. For more information, call 372-4000.
