Gateway To the Arts is hosting an online art auction to benefit All Heart Pet Rescue and 'A Place For Us' which is an initiative to create an art hub which will teach leadership skills, life skills, self-confidence and more through the use of the arts.
We are going to be renovating the old Gulliver's storefront and turning it into 'A Place For Us over the fall. While we have applied for funding we also need to raise some much needed capital to start this venture which will create some youth intern positions and partner with local businesses and artists to provide programming. The proceeds of this Auction which will close August 4, 2021 at midnight will be split between our endeavor and that of All Heart Pet Rescue.
Part of A Place For Us will be showing youth that volunteering in the community is not only a way to make the community strong and grow but also a way to build self-confidence, self-awareness and much needed job skills.
We are already working on Gulliver's to turn it back into some of its former glory as we host our summer day camps there. It's time to bring it back to what it once was, a place to learn and grow and support local.
Please visit the link. Bid on some awesome artwork (some of it youth made). And support a local venture!
