Effusion art gallery will be hosting the third annual Christmas ornament sale for charity starting November 26 at the gallery.
This Christmas, why not give the perfect gift?
Purchase an original piece of art with proceeds benefiting charity. Definitely, this gift keeps on giving. You can choose beautifully handcrafted ornaments for your own tree or give them as an original gift and keepsake to friends and family to use for years to come.
This highly successful event was created by Heather Cuell and Daryl DaCosta of the effusion art gallery. Gallery artists participate in the painting, decorating and creation of the Christmas tree ornaments, which are sold with 100 per cent of the proceeds going directly to a local charity.
In 2009 the Family Resource Centre were the beneficiaries of money raised. In 2010, proceeds went to the Invermere District Hospital Emergency Department.
This year the recipient will be the Women’s Information and Safe Home (WISH), a program of the Family Resource Centre in Invermere. The Centre recently expanded their services for women and children and opened a permanent shelter for those fleeing domestic violence in our community. Come and enjoy our beautifully decorated tree in the gallery, find that perfect gift, and give back to our community in the true spirit of Christmas.
