Dansville ArtWorks is partnering with the Foundation for Dansville Education on a cash raffle fundraiser to benefit both organizations, inviting the community to participate and “Picture the Future.” ArtWorks uses this fundraiser to ensure the organization is sustainable … to keep the arts center doors open and its offerings accessible to the community of art appreciators and creators. The Foundation seeks to ensure its ability to financially support unfunded or underfunded activities critical to children in our community and its annual award to a graduating senior, their Wall of Pride initiative, and the newly formed Dansville Alumni Association. In short, both organizations desire to deepen their commitment and contributions to the Dansville community now and into the future.
Tickets are available at Dansville ArtWorks (153 Main, Dansville, open Thursday through Saturday) and from its board members and volunteers (Nicole Alioto, Leanne Brewer, Syrena Carver, Samantha Davis, Jackie Donohue, Salome Farraro, Jeanne Gridley, and Cris Riedel). Foundation board members selling tickets include Paul Alioto, Sue Sylor, Kim Birmingham, Kim Derrenbacher, Derek Wadsworth, Janet Herrick-Stuczynski and Marilyn Robin.
