Affordable Art Auction and Open House

A celebration of community, kindness and resilience

2nd - 27th May 2024

“Sometimes it's easy to walk by because we know we can't change someone's whole life in a single afternoon. But what we fail to realise is that simple kindness can go a long way toward encouraging someone who is stuck in a desolate place.”
― Mike Yankoski
