Bev Beaton of Photography by Bev Beaton shows a piece of artwork she will be donating to the Art for Addictions fundraiser April 5 in Charlottetown.
Donations of art are being sought to raise money for the new home of a non-profit centre for youth and their families struggling with addictions.
The Reach Centre is looking for donations to help with renovations to the Stratford location.
The fundraiser will be held April 5 at the Confederation Centre of the Arts featuring the sale of artwork, entertainment by local musicians, and food and drink.
A great many renovations are needed in order for the space to “function in a truly meaningful, safe and rewarding way for the community it will serve,’’ The Reach Centre notes in a statement.
Organizers say the event will have a number of art consumers attending, which will provide artists a good opportunity to network with art collectors and businesses looking to support local art and its creators. Each artist who donates artwork to the fundraiser will receive two complimentary tickets to the event and will be listed in the fundraiser brochure.
“I feel it is important to partner with The Reach Centre and give back to our youth who struggle with addictions,’’ says local photographer Bev Beaton.
To donate a piece of art or for more information about the event and tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 90-393-4727.
The event runs from 7:00-9:30 p.m. in the Memorial Hall at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at all Murphy’s Pharmacies in P.E.I.
