CASHIERS -- Betsy Paul Properties is continuing to raffle off great plateau art every month to benefit the Cashiers-Glenville Volunteer Fire Department. Raffle tickets are $5 each and offer the buyer a chance to win art worth hundreds of dollars.

Betsy Paul Properties is at 870 U.S. Highway 64 West in Cashiers and is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

To view art and purchase tickets, stop by the office. Checks for raffle tickets should be made payable to the Cashiers-Glenville Volunteer Fire Department and either dropped by the office or mailed to P.O. Box 713, Cashiers, NC 28717. For information, call 828-743-0880.

The December raffle features the work of Glenville painter Elyse King. Raised on the Cashiers-Highlands plateau, King has an innate appreciation and unique relationship with the landscapes and animals in this special mountain region.

A self-developed artist from a young age, she decided to further her artistic skill range by studying production art at Western Carolina University. Her more recent renditions have returned King to her original love of depicting the natural mountain world in oils and acrylics with her own unique view and use of color.

When not pursuing her love of art, King is the owner/operater of her own independent hair shop, King Cuts, located off N.C. Highway 107 North in Glenville.

The drawing is set for 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31 at the Betsy Paul Properties office.

Charlotte Banners of Greenwood, S.C. was the November raffle winner.
