Lake Charles- Hobo Hotel for Cats and Kittens, a local non-profit rescue group, is calling all Lake Area artists for help with art donations. Pieces of local works of art are needed for the Sweet Art Silent Auction at the Imperial Calcasieu Museum on Saturday, February 23.
The fundraising event, with free admission to the public from 11:00 to 2:00, will feature works from local artists ranging from paintings and prints to framed photography, handmade pottery, jewelry, woodwork and furniture pieces. Sweets such as cakes, pies, cookie trays and desserts from local bakeries and home bakers will also be auctioned. Proceeds from the event will provide Hobo Hotel's ‘residents' with food, shelter, medicine and supplies needed for their daily care until they are adopted.
For more information or to donate your tax-deductible piece of artwork or baked sweets to the Sweet Art Silent Auction, contact Robin Anderson, Event Chair, at 477-3757 or 526-8334, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for all submissions is February 16.
