HIGH POINT — The High Point Area Arts Council will begin its 2005 United Arts Fund Drive on Jan. 13 and hopes to have most of its $300,000 goal raised by March.

Those funds will go to support the council and its six affiliates.

At a board of directors meeting Wednesday, the council announced that the Jan. 13 celebration will be at noon at the GTCC theater on the High Point campus at 901 S. Main St. That event includes a video presentation by an Arts North Carolina advocacy group.

The arts council needs volunteers to help with a direct mailing in connection with the fund drive. To volunteer, call Germaine Mahoney at 889-2787, Ext. 21.
