VAW Helping in the Time of the Pandemic:
As many of you know, our Silver Linings Silent Art Auction was very well received and the money raised in this first Auction was given to the Women's Place of South Niagara who were extremely happy for the donation. In this time of isolation there has been an uptick in domestic violence, and with most fundraisers halted, the money raised in our auction came with great relief.
Lucas Spinosa, owner of the Black Sheep Lounge in Welland (64 Niagara Street), has offered to once again have us stage a Silent Art Auction- Silver Linings Part 2- which will begin November 25th and end at 2 pm on December 9th, 2020.
The funds raised by this event will go to the Hope Centre for use in one of their many initiatives such as food, shelter, mental health and counselling. We all know this pandemic has caused heartache, stress, poverty, and hunger, as well as many mental health issues, so we want to do our part to help in any way we can.
Bidding opens at $50.00 for each painting and increases by $5.00 increments. As soon as someone bids $85.00 for a painting, it is then sold.
Come out and see the paintings, have lunch at The Black Sheep Lounge (see the menu on the website below), and then bid on a painting or two!
See you there!!!
