An “Artistic Affair” Fundraiser

Bridges will hold its first ever An “Artistic Affair” Fundraiser on March 31st 2016 from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. at the Cedar River Complex Atrium. What makes this fundraiser so unique?

Art is so meaningful because of the expression of the artists, or the impressions of the audience.  A the saying goes the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Each of us see beauty; find inspiration and motivation from different art mediums.  Determining what an artist is trying to express is like discussing the chicken or egg theory. Some artist will admit that they do art because they love it and it means nothing.  Or that it didn’t have meaning until complete. Some spend years researching to find the most authentic way to execute a thought. The fact that art means something different to everyone is the beauty of art.

Bridges staff and advisory board felt that it was important to have a fundraiser that will show homage to some of our local artists in Mitchell County. Each and every piece that was donated by our artists truly shows the tremendous talent we have in Mitchell County.

Come out and support Bridges Mentoring by attending our free will donation affair with art. You wont want to miss this fun evening filled with an array of appetizers, refreshments and desserts. Plus the opportunity to take a piece of this amazing work home by silently bidding on your favorite art piece. All proceeds from this event benefit the Bridges Mentoring Program.

If you are looking for a way to give back to your community, please consider mentoring. Just this month, we’ve received many inquiries from people who were interested in learning more about becoming a mentor. Every match makes a huge difference in encouraging healthy youth development in Mitchell County. We’re happy to meet with anyone who’d like to learn more about mentoring, from families to prospective volunteers. Contact our Program Coordinator Lacey for more information.
