Silent Auction Begins!
A “Decade of Joy”, Farrell Foundation’s Fall Gala Silent Auction begins September 1st! The Silent Auction of art, adventures, events and other items precedes the actual benefit in early October. Starting on Wednesday, visit our website and view all of the wonderful items. Each participant will need to set up an account. You will be automatically updated on your bid if another individual increases the amount. Your participation will help generate a resource to support the work of the Foundation and think of the artwork and opportunities that are just waiting for you!! The Silent Auction will end on September 30th. Items may be picked up at the Farrell Foundation’s Center for Artful Living, 26633 Detroit Road, M – F, 9 – 5, starting October 4th. (Artwork that requires out of town delivery – shipping charges will be added.) Art at left was done by Dawn Hopkins. Start your bidding September 1st!
Old T-Shirts Wanted!
Our Resident Artist Lee Ann Eyre has a special idea “up her sleeve” for an Art Experience at the Gala. She is looking for t-shirts to be used in an activity. Cotton or cotton blend t-shirts can be dropped off at the Center for Artful Living: M – F, 9 – 5. Part of the shirt’s fabric will be recycled into a community work of art by the guests!
Based on the latest COVID statistics for the State of Ohio, we are encouraging any non-vaccinated guests to wear masks as well as any others while inside the Center for Artful Living. We take precautions in maintaining the cleanliness of the building and equipment.
