Children helping children
Artwork created by students at South Surrey’s Core Education & Fine Arts (cefa) will be auctioned off at a gala and fundraiser later this month in support of children with special needs.
The April 30 event is to be held at White Rock Community Centre on Russell Avenue from 7 to 10 p.m., and include hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, wine tasting and music.
Proceeds are to benefit the Centre for Child Development, which has been providing services to children with special needs and their families in the Lower Mainland for more than 50 years.
According to a prepared statement, CEFA classes have been putting together a fairy-tale collection that will be published and sold to raise money for the centre, as well large canvas art pieces and collections for a silent auction the night of the event.
“Our students have been busy creating great art for the purpose of making our world better,” the release states.
The silent auction is to also include donations from local businesses and parents.
Tickets ($55) will be available to the public April 18.
