Jen Gill, Refuge Program Director and Jon Courtney, Community Pastor accepting our donation from Janet Dent, Local Colour Art show coordinator.

Recently our club held our annual "Art for the Holidays" show and sale.  The charity of choice was the Moms' Support group, which is part of "The Refuge" charity group based at the Riverwood Community Church on Riverton Avenue in Elmwood.  A total of $700 was raised by the raffle of artist donated paintings.  The Moms' support group was delighted to have the opportunity to ensure that many children in the community could enjoy a Christmas celebration.  The children visited Kid City, who provided a dinner and snacks for everyone - including photos with Santa, and a book for each family to take home and enjoy.

Local Colour Art Group thanks all who supported the raffle; making it possible for us to make a donation towards this wonderful celebration.
