For the past decade, OpenDoors has striven to break the cycle of poverty one child at a time. Each year, a key component in making that goal a reality is the organization’s largest fundraiser, OpenDoors Art Affair, the latest edition of which takes place Saturday, March 9, at Ambrose West. For the “Mission X” theme, glass artist Hayden Wilson is working with OpenDoors students to create glass versions of the Roman numeral as centerpieces on tables. Additional art will be part of the annual auction, and the evening also includes food, cocktails and such live entertainment as flamenco and jazz performances. The benefit gets underway at 6 p.m. for VIPs and at 7 p.m. for general admission ticket holders. $125 general admission/$175 VIP. opendoorsasheville.org. Photo by Reggie Tidwell
