All smiles as fruits of fundraiser are donated to local care facility in Castlegar

Talarico Place received a donation of $1,800 from an art exhibit and silent auction organized by Stanley Humphries Secondary students Paige Davis and Gwendilyn Grieves on Friday, April 19 in Castlegar.

“Art of Wonder” ran from Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 14 at Kootenay Crossing Mall and featured unique pieces from Kootenay artists of all ages, including paintings from Davis and sculptures from Grieves.

As she was handing over the large jar of cash to Kelly Seville, rec. coordinator, Davis said they were so pleased with the results they may collaborate on a second exhibit in the future.

Century 21 in Castlegar donated the large mall space for the fundraiser and Martech Electrical Systems Ltd. helped out with large wooden spools that served as tables for displaying a number of the pieces.
