Ribs for Art raises funds for ArtFest

Monday’s full stomachs foreshadowed summer’s entertainment. Gracie’s Place, 151 S. Putnam St., hosted the fourth Ribs for Art fundraising dinner on April 1 at 7 p.m. Attendees enjoyed barbecued ribs, potatoes, beans and dessert. All proceeds went toward the Williamston ArtFest, a free community event. ArtFest 2013 will be on July 27 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at McCormick Park. Gracie’s Place owner Paul Joseph estimated that last year’s dinners raised $3,000 to $5,000.
