Student Art Contest Exhibit and Silent Auction.
Middle School students, last year’s 7th and 8th grade, participated in an art contest organized for the Flock Together fundraiser event on June 8th to benefit Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, run by Debbie Pappas.
Second Chance hopes to meet all students and their friends and family to join this reception at the MARC. Prizes will be given that evening. Everybody is welcome to come and see the art and celebrate wildlife.
There will also be a silent auction, because the center can always use funds and we still have nice silent auction items to bid on. A nice opportunity for those who did not make it to the June 8th event.
There will be photos by Tom Till, Bruce Hucko and National Geographic photographer Keith Cauley, paintings by Cynthia Aldrich, Carolyne Dailey, Robin Straub, Phil Wagner, Yrma van der Steenstraeten, gift certificates and more goodies, all donated by local artists and businesses!
Unfortunately, Debbie Pappas might not be able to join us. She’s had open heart surgery and complications to deal with, so we all pray for her and hope she will be back on her feet as soon as possible. Wildlife needs her. In the meantime she has great help from friend and volunteer Connie Leek Waddell, who takes care of the center and animals in need for now. It would be great to help out to take some worries away from Debbie. The organization hopes people will come and bid on the great items in the silent auction, so Debbie can continue her work and save injured and orphaned wildlife, like the Bald Eagle, Golden Eagle, Red Tail Hawk, Owls and Great Blue Heron.
