HELPING OTHERS

We are currently holding a raffle to help the heartbreaking situation in Ukraine. Sue Ingram’s beautiful sunflower watercolor is being raffled off and all of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Airlink. Airlink is a highly respected nonprofit whose mission is to work with aviation and logistics partners to transport relief workers and emergency supplies for reputable non-governmental organizations responding to rapid-onset disasters and other humanitarian crises around the globe.

Please come in to Arts Abound to buy your raffle tickets. No purchase necessary.

Recently, Arts Abound held a raffle to raise money for the Open Door Pantry, Gloucester’s food bank for the less fortunate. The prize was a basket of items donated by many of our artists, including Donna Ardizzoni, Stephanie Mason, Sue Wheeler, Karen Keough, Sue Ingram, and Tin Can Sally. There were several mugs, a beach towel, notecards, a Magnolia bag, earrings, and more. We raised more than $200 for this wonderful nonprofit. Many thanks to the artists who donated their crafts, and to the many customers who bought tickets.
Magnolia resident Amy Bealin is a generous and talented individual. Besides being a great athlete, mom, wife, teacher, and researcher, she loves to create pottery. She brought her bowls, plates, lamps, and candle holders to sell at Arts Abound. She donated all the money from her sales (minus expenses) to the Food Project. To date we have given this nonprofit more than $250. We continue to sell her pottery and hope that you will come in and support this wonderful organization. Arts Abound donates all of her pottery sales as well.
