A Good Cause

This is a foundation that is been around for quite sometime and they raise money for schools to fund the art programs.

They have all kinds of fundraisers and one big one they have every year is their "Pin Auction". Back in the day local artists would make pins and they would auction them off, now days they can make pins or donate "mini masterpieces".
So that's what I'm doing, donating a mini masterpiece. I'm so honored to be able to do something like this.

Last year and I think this year also they will have big painted and mosaic hearts that will also be auctioned off. They bring in the big bucks. Last year they had them all around the town in different venues before they were sold. I know in other cities they've done painted cows and sheep and angels, etc.

It will be a night of shmoozing and silent auctions, bite size yummies and wine and money flowing.
In this day and age where they are cutting out all kinds of art programs because they aren't considered important. Humph! Bullshit! Anyways, these people are doing what they can to keep these programs alive.
Yes, us right brained humans need to have hope too.
