Event Description

Join North Carolina Children's Hospital on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium starting at 6pm for CowParade North Carolina Gala. Approximately 60 bovines will be selected to auction at the reception and live auction. Funds raised will benefit N.C. Children’s Hospital.

Tickets purchased in advance are $100. $125 at the door.

CowParade is the the world’s largest public art exhibit. CowParade North Carolina features 81 painted and costumed cows, all whimsically transformed by local artists, professional and amateur, from life-sized blank canvas fiberglass cows.

The life-sized bovines, each with a fanciful moniker fitting his/her design, are about 8’ long and 5’ high and weigh approximately 125 pounds before application by the artist.

CowParade North Carolina, presented by Wells Fargo for the benefit of North Carolina Children’s Hospital, is conservatively estimated to have attracted more than 500,000 visitors to the Triangle during the three-month exhibition.
