TAHLEQUAH – Ned’s pub was taken over last Saturday when the Arts Council of Tahlequah held its annual fundraiser at the establishment. Cherokee citizens once again contributed greatly to the event’s success.

According to CN citizen and ACT Vice President Callie Chunestudy, approximately $1,400 was raised to help pay for the council’s various programs throughout the year.

“The Arts Council of Tahlequah gives money to arts programs like Boys & Girls clubs,” said Chunestudy. “We hold a free winter concert. We hold history talks and give small arts grants to local artists and writers.”

Visitors to the ACT fundraiser enjoyed a reading from Cherokee Author Faith Phillips who read part of her new and untitled book, while Cherokee artists Jamil Jaser and Kindra Swafford did live paintings of corn hole boards, which were auctioned off later that evening.
