Art for the Holidays

It’s that time of year again! The Counselling Centre of East Algoma is hosting its second annual Art for The Holidays fundraising event. The success of last years event raised $4,400, which went back into the community to support 36 families plus 20 individuals during the Christmas Holiday. Our goal this year is to help 50 families and 50 individuals who are alone for the holidays and on fixed incomes, giving us a financial goal of $7500 to $10,000. We are continuing with the online auction, which will go live on Monday, November 21, 2022, at 9 a.m. All artwork is generously donated by members of our communities. This year, we are holding a semi-formal gala on Saturday, November 19, 2022, at the W.C.
Collins Hall. This will include a solo acoustic set by Tanner Reinhardt starting at 6pm during cocktail hour while viewing artwork, a four-course dinner (which you can chose your main dish), a live auction of randomly selected pieces with a few interactive games, then finally a live performance by IN WAVES. The evening also coincides with the 50th anniversary of the
Counselling Centre of East Algoma, which makes this event even more meaningful. Tickets are $60 before November 1st after tickets are $65. 100% of the proceeds go directly back into the community to support families and individuals. As everyone is feeling the impact of inflation, food insecurity and the rising cost of basic needs, we are looking for financial donations to help us reach this goal to give back directly to our families in these challenging times. Any donation you can give to make this event as successful and meaningful as last years event is genuinely appreciated.
