Galloway Ridge Retirement Community will host the first ever Goat Parade, a public art installation and tour, to benefit the Robert and Pearl Seymour Center (Chapel Hill) and the Chatham County Council on Aging (Pittsboro). Extraordinary local artists will paint the life-size goat statues, which will be auctioned off during a gala on Friday, November 14, 2014.

The Goat Parade Committee is uniting artists, sponsors, merchants, businesses, arts educators, governmental bodies and social groups for the common goal of enhancing local communities and to raise awareness and funds for local seniors. Partnerships will be made with public, private and civic entities to celebrate the bond between Chatham and Orange Counties.
