Bidding on Reach Child and Youth Development Society’s third Annual Art for Autism Fundraiser begins online on Feb. 12.
The South Delta Artist’s Guild (SDAG), Delta Potters Association, South Delta Artisans and Watershed Artworks Society in North Delta have donated original art in support.
“Our event is only possible thanks to the talent and generosity of our local art community,” said Reach events and fundraising coordinator Tamara Veitch.
SDAG’s Rod Winning played a pivotal role in securing donations along with Reach’s events volunteer Linda Edwards.
“It has been such a pleasure receiving and cataloguing the items for the online auction,” added Veitch. “I am blown away by the outstanding calibre and heartfelt support shared with us. Our buyers are absolutely in for a treat.”
Paintings, pottery, photographs, jewelry and sculpture will be offered online at https://www.artauctionforautism.com/.
